OPRAH Winfrey has upset her mother!
Sources say Vernita Lee was furious when the billionaire media mogul told Barbara Walters that BFF Gayle King is “the mother I never had.”
“Vernita is devastated,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“It was the final straw after years of insults and betrayals. She just doesn’t understand why Oprah still has to be so cruel to her.”
Vernita was said to have been “so proud” when she sat down to watch the Walters interview at her Milwaukee condo.
“But her joy turned to tears and embarrassment as Oprah described her friendship with Gayle,” said the pal. “Vernita knows she wasn’t the perfect mother, but she loves Oprah, and she is hurt by the way her daughter put her down in public.
“Vernita says Oprah keeps bringing up the fact that she was the result of a one-night stand, that Vernita didn’t protect Oprah from abuse or help her when she was raped when she was 9 years old .
“She wishes Oprah would forgive her after all these years.”
