Oprah Settles Lawsuit To Hush Up Former Employee

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersOprah Winfrey

oprah pays to keep secrets hushed

After The Enquirer posted some unsavory details of a federal lawsuit that Oprah was involved in, she rapidly settled the case out of court.

Here are some of the allegations in the lawsuit:

-Oprah passed out prescription meds on her private jet

-Oprah's BFF Gayle King slept with a male flight attendant on the jet

-Oprah went on racist rants

The suit was filed by a flight attendant on Oprah's private jet, Corrine Gheris, who claimed that Oprah wrongfully fired her for "inappropriate intimate behavior" with the chief pilot of the jet.

Gheris sought $75,000+ in damages from Oprah's production company, and it looks like she has been appeased.

Here's what legal documents that were filed with the U.S. District Court in Chicago on Oct 5th said:

"Parties agree to the terms of settlement. Stipulation of Dismissal to be filed with the District Court."

Here's what a source had to say about the settlement:

"Oprah clearly did not want any more of her dirty laundry exposed as part of this nasty lawsuit. She wanted it to go away - and that's exactly what happened!"

Good thing she settled that lawsuit. Sounds like this could have gotten really nasty really quickly!

What do U think about the allegations against Oprah?

    Everything about Okra Panfry is a Lie & Fraud!

  2. 2

    what about HONESTY & TRUTH OKRA?

  3. 3

    Wow if that's dirty laundry Oprah makes me look like a Saint. She really is a good person if that is the worst.

    "Oprah passed out prescription meds on her private jet"

    She needs to be THROWN IN PRISON for DECADES!

    When you have that much money as Oprah, you will always be a target of people who wants easy money. It would have cost her more to fight this lawsuit so I don't blame her for settling it… not to mention all the allegations that may ruin her name. In my opinion, she should have fired both the pilot and the flight attendant if they were both under her employ.

    i cant imagine any of it being true but $75000 is small change to Oprah so i can see why she settled rather than drag it out in court. especially as it doesnt just involve her, shes protecting her friend as well.

    Oprah has done amazing things…most importantly she has raised millions to help people. Unfortunately her money will always make her a target for stupid lawsuits. Who cares if Gail had sex with a pilot? I'm sure Oprah wasn't handing out Opiates - maybe she gave someone headache medication she had in her purse. Who knows? And racist rants? Whatever…she does have to be perfect…we all say things behind close doors that we may not say in public. It's unfortunate that US law allows for sure dumb lawsuits!!

    Imagine that. Oprah possibly going on racial rants - presumbly against the same type of people who watched her show and made her so wealthy.

  9. 9

    She was being sued for $75,000? That tells me that she didn't have anything salacious on Oprah. If she did, she would have asked for more money in exchange for silence.

    Racist remarks = her calling someone a hillbilly.
    Passing out on prescription drugs = taking too many Ambiens.
    Gayle having sex w/ the pilot= Who cares? Is Gayle married? A minor? She is a single adult woman who can have sex w/ whoever she wants.

  10. 10

    When are Oprah and Gayle gonna come out of the closet already??? Gayle having sex with a MALE flight attendant, OH PLEEEEZZZEEE!!! What a CROCK OF SHIT!!!

  11. 11

    Oprah may be a good man, she may be a great man–but she's still just a man!

    Leaked on purpose to build Gayle's (and thus Oprah's) hetero street cred.

  14. 14

    look i don't think people understand that when you are being sued.. it's done directly at you and its her job to prove your innocent.. it is costly so it is safe to just pay the person.

  15. 15

    Oprah a racist? That's news???? Come on - who is left who DOESN'T know she used the white middle class housewives who "made" her what she is today? Big O is a bigger racist than Jeramiah Wright - she just assumes she's kept it under wraps.

  16. 16

    I read the Enquirer article and Oprah's supposedly racist rant was allegdly claiming "white people don't know how to cook Southern food." If that's racist then I'm racist too because I agree with her. As for the whites here complaining that Oprah shouldn't be racist because whites made her rich, keep in mind that whites are also the ones spreading false rumours about her being being a closet gay even though Oprah & gayle have both had sex with many many men and both women gave birth to babies (Oprah's died). I appreciate the fact that whites supported Oprah's rise to the top, but y'all get NASTY when black get too much money & power so blacks have the right to be racist against y'all.

  17. 17

    Well it's not the first time I heard she's racist. There are rumors floating around all the time esepecially from past assistants she's had.

  18. 18

    You know, it's just so hard to tell now-a-days. Everyone is taking their shot at getting rich while nabbing their 15 minutes and blasting others at the same time. Though based on the price she sued for, I don't think it was as 'juicy' as she probably hoped it would be. I guess we'll probably never know though! Like someone else said; it's more beneficial to pay the settlement than to fight it. (Luckily for Oprah, it wasn't more than a scratch on her wallet.)

  19. 19

    This is one of the biggest racists alive–she is nothing but a big fat black P O S and is the cause not the solution, how the hell she got to be so big is unknown to me.

  20. 20

    I agree Brat93111. If this is the worst they can say about Oprah after observing her behind the scenes all those years, she does seem like a saint. I love the woman.

    I can vouch for this; Oprah is a bitch. My father built a tennis court for her, at her home in New Mexico, and I only heard terrible things about her. It doesn't surprise me. Classy people are disgusting in private.

  23. 23

    I'm white and I hate white people! Well, some of them anyway. File this under disgruntled ex-employee wanting to milk one of the weathiest women (black or otherwise) in the world. This person was trying to make a mountain out of molehills and if $75,000 was all she could get…she didn't have any serious dirt to expose. If this was ill gotten gains, karma will bite this person in the ass.

  24. 24

    i definetly wouldn't be bitch'n about prescription meds be handed out…& im sure oprah gets the good s*&t!!

  25. 25

    Oprah being racist is not news. I think it's sad, I had more faith in her. But it is not news.
    I also heard from those that worked for her at various homes she owns (Montecito) that she is NOT a nice person.
    Seems O forgot where she came from.
