Frank Ocean has been sued by Chipotle Mexican Grill for backing out of an ad for the eatery. TMZ reports that Ocean was sued today in Los Angeles County, with the plaintiff claiming that he agreed to a $425,000 deal to sing a remake of "Pure Imagination" for a new TV spot.
The company claims that Ocean backed out because after they showed him the final cut, he didn't like the company's logo appearing at the end. They say they received an email from Ocean's people that said he believed he had final say over recording and all promotional materials, and asserted that the company was in breach for refusing to remove the logo.
The company is seeking the $212,500 advance it paid.
