After being sued by Chipotle last week, Frank Ocean has decided to pay back money that he was given to create an ad for the restaurant:
Singer Frank Ocean is being sued by Mexican restaurant chain Chipotle. According to a complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, March 7, the company says it paid the Channel Orange star $212,500 to record a cover of “Pure Imagination,” a song originally made famous when Gene Wilder sung it in 1971’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The suit says the track was supposed to appear in a marketing campaign promoting locally and sustainably sourced food over industrial farming practices. Ocean (born Christopher Breaux) was due to turn in the track on August 7, when he was also set to receive another $212,500, but he instead informed the company that he would not be participating in the campaign.
