Frank Ocean is changing his name… to Frank Ocean!

We know – that’s not surprising at all, but if you weren’t aware the Channel Orange singer’s real name is actually Christopher Edwin Breaux, so this is technically new territory for the superstar.

According to TMZ, he has already filed legal documents to go through with the name update, and there’s a whole process he has to go through to make it official.

The site states:

To make it official … Frank has to plaster his intentions in a newspaper on 4 separate occasions — once a week, 4 weeks in a row.  The idea is that if he’s using the name to defraud someone, potential victims can come forward and object in court.

In other Ocean news, apparently he’s about to be sued by Chipotle!

TMZ reports that the burrito spot is filing a lawsuit after they paid Mr. Ocean $425,000 to sing a rendition of “Pure Imagination” for their new ad.

Allegedly, Frank backed out because he didn’t like the fact that the ad featured a Chipotle logo at the end of it.

The site reports:

The restaurant says it got an email from Frank’s people claiming Frank thought he was promised final say over the recording and all promotional materials — and believed the company was in breach when it refused to remove its logo. Chipotle is suing to get back the $212,500 advance it paid Ocean.

Something tells us there’s more to this story. Stay tuned for updates.
