    Fans now think that Frank Ocean is in a relationship with fellow singer Omar Apollo after rumours have gone viral on social media.

    Both singers appeared to be in Italy during the same time and were at the same locations, which prompted this speculation.

    Ocean was also spotted in the audience at SZA's recent tour in America, where Omar Apollo was opening for the 'Kill Bill' singer.

    Omar himself has spoken about his sexuality in his music, and said to Rolling Stone: "I’m very open about it in my music and on Twitter."

    "But when it comes to identifying myself…  It feels good to say queer. I don’t know. I’m complex."

  2. Memo Guzman

    In 2019, Frank Ocean opened up about his love life in a rare interview and revealed he had been quietly seeing someone for three years.

    When speaking to Gayletter's 10th issue, Ocean said "I don’t use dating apps. I’ve been in a relationship for three years."

    He continued: "I definitely wasn’t using dating apps before then. I don’t think I would use dating apps now"

  3. Frank Ocean speaks on his sexuality and troubled relationship with his father

    Following the tragic Pulse shooting in Orlando, Florida, which killed 49 people in 2016, Ocean published a letter expressing his sadness.

    He mentioned that his first experience with homophobia and transphobia was with his father as a child, and said he related to how many people pass on their hateful attitudes to the next generations.

    In 2017, his father then sued him for defamation and requested $14.5 million in damages.

    A judge ruled in favour of Ocean and said that his father had not provided sufficient evidence of defamation.

  4. Frank Ocean's coming out story

    On 4 July 2012, Frank Ocean shared an open letter to his Tumblr called 'thank you's' and opened up about his sexuality and his first love.

    "4 summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide," he wrote in the letter.

    Ocean added: "It was my first love. It changed my life. Back then, my mind would wander to the women I had been with, the ones I cared for and thought I was in love with. I reminisced about the sentimental songs I enjoyed when I was a teenager, the ones I played when I experienced a girlfriend for the first time.

    "I realized they were written in a language I did not yet speak."

    He cited unrequited love from the young man when he was 19, and thanked the man, his mother and others for their support.

    "I don't have any secrets I need kept anymore... I feel like a free man," he touchingly wrote.
