Frank Ocean granted name change

R&B star Frank Ocean has legally changed his name to reflect his stage moniker.

The Thinkin Bout You singer was born Christopher Edwin Breaux, but on Thursday (23Apr15) a Los Angeles judge granted his request for a name change, according to TMZ.com.

In 2014, Ocean was initially denied his petition because of several unresolved driving offences, but the issues have since been settled.
