Chipotle execs have officially dropped their breach of contract lawsuit against R&B star Frank Ocean.
The "Pyramids" singer allegedly backed out of a $425,000 deal to sing the theme to an ad for the chain, and when bosses filed suit for the return of their advance, Ocean took to his Tumblr account to post a photo of a check for $212,500, adding "[expletive] OFF" in the memo section.
A spokesperson for Chipotle has now confirmed to Rolling Stone that Ocean has paid up and bosses have agreed to drop the lawsuit. The check received was not the one Ocean posted an image of online.
The legal spat began when Ocean pulled out of a deal to record a rendition of Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley's "Pure Imagination" from "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" for a Chipotle ad. The firm's bosses eventually asked Fiona Apple to record the track.
