Frank Ocean Returns Money From Chipotle Ad After Being Sued For Backing Out
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.11.2014

Frank Ocean has paid back an advance for a deal he backed out of after being sued by Chipotle. As we previously noted, Ocean was sued after he claimed that Chipotle breached their contract by putting their logo at the end of the ad. Billboard has some more details, noting that Ocean's reasons may have made a bit more sense than initially reported.

According to the site, Ocean had agreed to record a song titled "Pure Imagination" for a marketing campaign that was created to "promote local and sustainably-sourced food while warning of the dangers of industrial farming." The ad, in other words, wasn't specifically for Chipotle but they were financing it. Ocean backed out, with a letter from Ocean's legal team noting that "When Frank was asked to participate in this project, Chipotle's representatives told him that the thrust of the campaign was to promote responsible farming. There was no Chipotle reference or logo in the initial presentation, and Chipotle told Frank that was an intentional element of the campaign. Frank was also promised that he'd have the right to approve the master and all advertising."

Ocean has now returned the advance, with a little message. He posted a scan of the check on Tumblr, which includes in the memo the words, "F*** OFF."
