Oprah Settles Lawsuit To Hush Up Former Employee

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?
