Oprah Sued For 1 Trillion Dollars!!!!

| Filed under: Legal MattersOprah Winfrey


Unfortunately, this was not filed by Dr. Evil!

Author Damon Lloyd Goffe is suing Oprah and her production company, Harpo, for allegedly stealing material from the writer's work titled A Tome of Poetry and publishing it under the name, Pieces of My Soul.

According to legal documents, Goffe claims the talk show host admitted to the thievery last year.

The poet believes that since Oprah sold over 650 million editions of the work online for $20 a copy, he is entitled to 1.2 trillion dollars!

We can't wait to hear from the big O!!!

  15. 15

    650 million copies? I don't THINK so. That's almost twice the population of the United States.

  16. 16

    SO wouldn't her production company be at fault? That's right she is her production company, she's screwed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Plagiarism is serious sh!t, it got me kicked out of school.

  21. 21

    Holy shit man!! 1 Trillion dollars! is that even a resonable number! Dude should get like 5 mil tops possibaly not even that! that guy is a douche!! Oprah is like the leader of middle aged women everywhere! she'll probably hit the attack button on that dude and then this will all " secretly " blow over and we'll never hear about it again! and yes Oprah is that cleaver!

  22. 22

    People needs to know how to do their math properly.
    Either my calculator is broken, or I'm stupid.
    650,000,000 x 20 = 13,000,000,000

    not Trillion


  23. 23

    Oprah could offer him 100k and he'd shut up.
    he's just after a quick buck.

  24. 24

    Re: papatoony

    Yah but there is 6 billion people in the world.
    So 650 mil is only one 9th of the world's population.
    She just has that much power.

  25. 25

    1 trillion? thats fucked up!!!!

  26. 26

    oh shit,

  29. 29

    Can't wait until you both suffer the same fate!

  30. 30

    My Perezcious is NOT obligated to draw a "peen" in front of anyone's picture who has his/her mouth open as a service to the gay community! He just forgot this time.

  31. 31

    finally, i knew she was gonna fuck up big at some point

  32. 32

    That's alot of O.

  33. 33

    could this be the beginning of the end of the cult of oprah?

  34. 34

    Hmm… all the things a government could do with a trillion… give 100 million steady workers a nice $10k check…. have this guy oversee that!!

  35. 35

    Re: Laury Well, that's only part of what Obama's spent so far… wonder who is loaning it to him!!??!?

  36. 36

    Re: JustAViewerForcedToMakeAName – LOL You are totally right. My brain went to lunch. ;)

  37. Melme says – reply to this


    Re: Laury – Haha…I was going to say practically the same thing as in your post. Thought I better quote you instead…in case I get "sued" LOL!

  38. 38

    well if she did admit to it, and they sold 650 million at $20 a piece, then he should actually get $13 billion. and he should get it, no one should be able to get away with that! not even mama o!

  39. 39


  40. 40

    she is so fucked.

  41. 41

    Thats the stupidest amount ever to sue for….He must be some cracked fool!

  43. 43

    lets wait and see what happens….

  44. 44

    what the shit?!

  45. 45

    Re: joeysawolf – Sure of it! Obviously no one has noticed this massive mistake, because they are all stuck at 'Suing Oprah'.

    Serious though, where did 1.2 trillion come from? Even the 13billion is huge! Who needs that much money??

  46. 46

    It's 1.3 BILLION, not trillion. LOL
    Perez, your source is bullshit - double check ydouble check ur sources on the internets.

  47. 47

    lol there is no way she sold 650 million copies
    Re: JustAViewerForcedToMakeAName
    I really hope you're being sarcastic

  48. 48

    I think this asshole is on drugs just trying to get rich fast. We are in tough economic times right now and the government keeps asking for money but never anything like that, this guys dreams are too unrealistic, the courts would laugh at him for being so outrageous.

  49. @v@ says – reply to this


    From the Enquirer: 'In the legal papers, Goffe says that "in April 2008 Oprah confessed to seizing original works of authorship" and published on the internet the first draft of his work " A Tome of Poetry" under another title "Pieces of My Soul."

    The claimant says the website in question is no longer live
    The suit also alleges Oprah sold over 650 million editions of the work online for $20 a copy which "calculates for 1.2 trillion dollars!" '

    Uhm, excuse me, but someone cannot multiply. Back to Hogwart's with you.
    650 million X $20 = 12 Billion, not trillion. Right?

  50. 50

    Ok, i need to make changes, first of all, this guys full of shit, that hasn't changed, and he can't do basic math.
    Secondly, give me the source to this, because so far, i haven't heard of this anywhere else but another blog which is just another civilian blog, unheard of, so lets see some actual proof.

  51. 51

    Yeah is this story even true? I NEVER trust a story if only Perez is talking about it and I DEFINITELY think it's exaggerated since Perez just basically STOLE this story from the National Enquirer. Maybe next week Perez will report Oprah is having a baby with Bat-boy.

  52. 52

    and no, the national enquirer is not a legitimate source! Everything that magazine has ever published has been LIES!!

  53. 53

    1 trillion? holy shit. this is BS.

  54. 54


  55. 55

    If I were Oprah, I'd be saying " 'O' Shit" right about now.

  56. 56

    lol, yeah right watch him lose his court battle and look like another idiot who'd do anything for money. -yawn-

  57. 57

    trillion? what is wrong with this lady?

  58. 58

    Let's do a little thinking here. If she sold 650 million copies (which I doubt) at $20 a pop… then that is $13 billion dollars. He said she took some of his poems, so the WHOLE book is not his poetry. If this all holds up in court… then at most he should get a percentage based on whatever percentage of the book was his work, after the fees have been paid to the publishing company and all others involved in the production and sale of the book. But I still think he's half retarded and full of mountains of shit.

  59. 59

    1 trillion = 1000 billions. Oprah is being sued for "only" 12 billion

  60. 60

    If you follow the link (page 3) he's including broadcast live 24/7 etc.

  61. 61

    In SA Rands that would be 8.6 Trillion US$
    that is a scary amount of cash.

  62. 62

    Sorry it would be 8.6 Trillion SA Rands.

  63. 63

    Bet this is one of Mario Perez, one of our sleazy laundromat boy, wishes when he daydreams.

  64. 64

    Bet this is one of Mario Perez, our sleaziest Laundromat boy, wishes when he daydreams! LOL.

  65. 65

    i seriously doubt that book sold that many editions. thats def over estimated

  66. 66

    1 trillion dollars?? Are we sure this isn't Dr. Evil? LOL

  67. 67

    how much is one trillion?

  68. 68

    Gail will save you!!!!!!!!!!

  69. 69

    LOL - 1 Trillion dollars…
    Chances are they'll settle out of court for 10 million and a stake in her production company…

  70. 70

    bye bye oprah!

  71. 71

    OPRAH's a BITCH in Sheep's clothing.

  72. 72

    Ummmmm…somebody doesn't do math very well? 650 million x 20 is 13 billion. Where di they come up with 1.2 trillion?
    AND…650 miliion copies? I pretty sure that would be a record and we would have been widely publicized.
    AND…WTF makes you think anyone would give over a TRILLION dollars (even if they had it to give)?
    Damon Lloyd Goffe, welcome to your 15 minutes of fame by merit of being a ridiculous asshat.

  73. 73

    uh…pretty late on this one, Perez….the case was thrown out by a judge on August 4th…turns out the guy is a nute case….hmmm…go figure! He also is suing Will Smith for recording his life

  74. 74

    Im sure the money she made with that movie is not even near a trillion!

  75. 75

    Im sure the money she made with the books is not even near a trillion!

  76. 76

    OMG! i cant even imagine that kind of money!! 1.2 trillion? Perez r u sure its not 1.2 BILLION? this is utterly crazy

  77. 77

    I'm not sure if I can believe Oprah would steal from an author. She'd claim an author was telling a true story when she knows he's lying. She's usually more of a Jerry Springer type. She'll lie her ass off, but she isn't known for stealing. Mostly she pretends to discover things that are already popular, and takes credit. However, knowing a little something about Oprah's personality, I do believe she would steal a book, if she was under the impression no one would believe she did it, or believed no one would ever find out.

  78. 78

    Lame! Leave Oprah alone

  79. 79

    1.2 trillion… Oh Jeez..

  80. 80

    Holy Fuck.

  81. 81

    That's like one dollar for her, she probably keeps 1 mil in her wallet for grocery shopping…..

  82. 82

    If it's true her lawyers will settle out of court.

  83. 83

    wtf omg that's hard on poor o i don't think he gunna get anything

  84. 84

    Re: joeysawolf – You are right. It is 13 bil. Not a trillion dollars. This man is off his rocker a tad bit!

  85. 85

    Oprah doesn't settle! She conquers and squashes like her competition (which there's no real comp). She is the true QUEEN of ALL MEDIA.

  86. 86

    Finally someone to stand up against this blow hard bully. The O needs to go away and never come back. I am from Chicago and the O is not one to follow, in fact people need to not watch her any more.

  87. 87

    Thats absurd! Oprah wouldnt steal!

  88. 88

    1 trillion is more than the GDP of Australia. There's an animation on Youtube that shows you what it looks like.

  89. 89

    Jeez.. 650 Million copies!?! Isn't that like some almost 2 books per person in the US? I wouldn't buy 2!! This guy's just another gold digging retard. I hope she tells him to F*** OFF!

  90. 90

    oprah is ok i just think shes overrated

  91. 91

    easy come easy go bitch!!

  92. 92

    that guys sounds like a jackass…

  93. 93

    Someone needs a math lesson - 650million x 20 = 13 billion, NOT 1.2 Trillion. How embarassing!

  94. 94

    Oprah is going to fuck someone up!!!!!

  95. 95

    Damn, that's alot of money!

  96. 96

    Damn! Hope that shyt is false!

  97. 97

    Wow isn't that cool!

  98. 98

    I think it should be farther looked at to see if she really did seal his work and lower the price NO ONE has that money!!!!

  99. 99

    Re: joeysawolf – I agree with everything you wrote and not only does it add up to 13 billion whose to say his book would have sold as many . After all it may not have been the book that sold but the name behind the book ! Everyone knows Oprah has a following of people like no other star. Lets face if this guy wouldn`t have sold nearly as many books.. also why did he wait so long before making his clam .. I mean he knew the book was out , he should have said something sooner !

  100. 100

    650 million editions would mean that nearly every American owns 2 editions. 650 million multiplied by 20 USD are not 1,2 trillion dollars. there is no book titles Pieces of My Soul by Oprah Winfrey. If there was, it would be distributed by a publisher and not as a self-published book over the internet as Mr. Goffe claims. Also, Mr. Goffe claimes, that the Will Smith Show is based on his life and that the Real Life is based on his life as well. He also filed suits because of that. And, above all, the so-called Oprah Winfrey Case was dismissed by judge Lamberth in mere two pages because the book Pieces of My Soul does not exist, and thus there is no case.
