As America’s best known chat show host Oprah Winfrey has counseled dozens of people on her couch. But the multimillionaire is facing problems of her own after becoming embroiled in a bitter row with her stepmother….Barbara
Winfrey, who is married to Oprah’s father Vernon, has accused the
billionaire chat show host of forcing her out of her husband’s life.
She claims Oprah has used her fortune to take control of the barber shop Vernon Winfrey has run for more than 50 years.
now the 78-year-old has filed for divorce as the row over ownership of
the barbershop threatens to tear apart the Winfrey family.
The store in Nashville, Tennessee, was bought by Oprah last week after going into foreclosure.
She paid $475,000 for the property when it was put up for auction.
Winfrey said the purchase means the chat show host, who now runs her
own YV network, has gained control of the business and cut her out.
‘I know what is going on. I’m tired of it, and I’ve had enough,’ Barbara Winfrey told WSMV TV in Nashville.
