Frank Ocean -- P****s Out in Chipotle Lawsuit Settlement

EXCLUSIVE
Frank Ocean acted like he was hot sauce, but really ... he's mild.

As TMZ first reported, Chipotle sued Ocean, claiming they paid him the $212,500 as an advance to record a song for one of their commercials ... and then he bailed. Ocean responded to the suit by posting a photo to Tumblr of the settlement check ... with "F*** OFF" in the memo box. 


But we found out ... Ocean didn't have the guac to carry through on his gangster move. A rep for Chipotle tells TMZ the settlement check they received from Ocean did NOT have the expletive in the memo line.

As the rep put it, "Nice stunt, Frank!"
