Oprah’s Mom Sued Over $155k Clothing Bill

|

Vernita Lee, mother of Oprah Winfrey, has been sued for refusing to pay the $155,000 on her charge account with Valentina, Inc., a fashion store in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Lee’s allegedly been racking up the charges on her “preferred customer” account (a.ka. “The Big Spend”) since 2004, and has not been making the monthly minimum payment of $2,000. Oprah could pull a twig off her money tree and settle the beef, but instead Lee is hiring three lawyers to prove she doesn’t owe a cent. Oh, mother. [Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel via ONTD]
