Barbara Winfrey was married to Oprah Winfrey’s father, Vernon Winfrey for 14 years and after 14 years of marriage and Vernon cheating on Barbara with a known prostitute name “one tooth” the couple both filed for divorce. Unbeknownst to Barbara, Vernon complained to Oprah and Stedman how he was unhappy in his marriage.
Now Barbara is telling all in the media of how Oprah never like her; dealt with her from a distance, Oprah’s loveless relationship with Stedman Graham, her controlling and unhealthy friendship with best friend Gayle King and how Oprah’s brand is caring, giving and compassion, while she is privately; the complete opposite. Barbara states that all of Oprah’s relationships are secured with Confidentiality Agreements, based on Oprah’s terms of control.
Barbara’s gripe is, she’s now being evicted from the home she shared with Vernon Winfrey although Vernon moved out of the home before filing for divorce and Oprah’s name is on the deed to the home because it was gifted to Barbara and Oprah’s father after they married. The home Barbara shared with Vernon was purchased by Oprah’s Company, Overground Railroad LLC. So in all actuality, it was a gift in the meantime and as long as Barbara and Oprah’s father Vernon, remained husband and wife.
Oprah has since purchased another home for her father and has evicted Barbara (pictured here), giving her until May 29th to vacate the premises. Barbara is devastated because this was a home she thought was theirs.
It’s a real sob story on Barbara’s part however, Oprah is a business woman by right and a billionaire by design and I don’t blame her one bit for protecting every aspect of her relationships because where money is involved everyone has a motive.
