US singer Frank Ocean reportedly tweeted that his father is attempting to sue him for $1 million.

The Channel Orange hit-maker, who is currently up for six Grammys, did not specify why he is being sued, but hinted that his father had in fact abandoned him when he was six-years-old.

"Father wanna sue me for a million. Like I owe him back child support. Weak individual bought me a swiss knife at 6yrs old then dipped on me [sic]," Frank allegedly tweeted today before the deleting that message.

The 22-year-old later added: "I got his DNA though, maybe I inherited some of his karma too."

"Not for glory. not for paper. not for self, friends, family, foes or lovers. no evil [sic]."

The news comes after the singer announced that he may retire from music to pursue a career in literature.

He told The Guardian: "Storytelling's a different thing. It's the more interesting part about making music for me, or making albums and songs and stuff. So much so that I might not make another album. I might just write a novel next. I don't know!" Frank told the publication.

"This isn't a faux retirement. It's no bulls**t. I was just making music yesterday. But I do think it would be f**king legendary if I just made 'Channel Orange' last year, then put out a best-selling novel next year, then, you know, designed an arena in Stockholm in 2014!"
