Oprah Winfrey paid for dad's divorce

Nov 12 2012, 1:03am CST | by

Oprah Winfrey agreed to foot the bill when her father Vernon Winfrey filed for divorce from his spouse Barbara.

Oprah Winfrey paid for her father's divorce.
Vernon Winfrey, 79, decided to break up with Barbara, his wife of 12 years, after becoming sick of her spendthrift ways, which he says almost cost him his barbershop business, and after confiding his fears to his daughter's long-term partner Stedman Graham, Oprah stepped in to help.
Vernon said: ''One day when Stedman was in town for a speaking engagement, I told him over dinner what was going on and that I didn't know how I was going to handle it but I wanted out of my marriage.
''He asked if I needed help and I said 'Yes I believe so'. He immediately told Oprah and she told me to hire attorneys and she would take care of it.''
Vernon filed for divorce in June and claims his wife spent most of his money and is refusing to leave the $1.6 million Nashville home Oprah bought for him.
He told National Enquirer magazine: ''I've filed for divorce and moved out of the beautiful home Oprah bought me to live in but I don't own it.
''Barbara was spending money as if I were Oprah.''

Lindsay Lohan’s London boyfriend is ‘an older investment banker’ with two kids

Aug 22 2014 7:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Here are some photos of Lindsay Lohan in NYC on Wednesday. She was stopping by The Bowery Hotel “to visit a friend,” which I’m assuming means what we all think it means. I guess we should just be thankful that the Cracken managed to find a bra because all bras have been MIA in Crackville for months now. Her girls needed support! More girls need support, even the perky girls. Speaking of “support” and mysterious hotel visits, I’m sure I’m not alone in wondering just how Lind ...
