Frank Ocean

I'm Changing My Name

... To Frank Ocean

3/7/2014 4:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0307_frank-ocean_gettyFrank Ocean has made a drastic decision to legally change his name ... but fear not ...  it's not a  Prince-esque symbol.

Ocean -- whose real name is Christopher Edwin Breaux -- filed legal docs to officially change his name to Frank Ocean.

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.

Yes, newspapers still exist.

He's gay, so what. I can accept that much easier than transgender ****. Besides, a lot of straight men LOVE to have rear-end sex with thier gals and "technically" that's not *natural* either as It serves no procreation purposes but it it isn't frowned upon within the straight dude community. Didn't Diddy claim to have anal with J Lo on the Howard Stern show back in the day? Shrug. Just saying. As for this guy, I can't even name any of his songs so I'm not sure why I even clicked on this story.
