Oprah Winfrey ha appena rivelato notizie dolorose su uno dei suoi familiari. Il magnate dei media, che è diventato famoso come conduttore di “The Oprah Winfrey Show”, ha sempre parlato della sua travagliata educazione familiare. Ha rivelato al Washington Post nel 1986 che si sentiva spesso estraniata da sua madre, con la quale è tornata a vivere rimanendo con suo padre per un breve periodo. “Sono scappata di casa. Ho iniziato a manifestare il mio bisogno di attenzione, il mio bisogno di essere amata”, ha detto. “Mia madre non ha avuto il tempo.” E mentre Winfrey in seguito ha riacceso la sua relazione con sua madre, Lee è morta nel 2018 a 83 anni.

On the other hand, Winfrey recently honored her father's legacy by throwing him an appreciation party. "Giving my father his "flowers" while he's still well enough to smell them," Winfrey wrote on Instagram. "Happy 4th of July as you gather with your family and friends. Remember to celebrate each other." Now, Winfrey has shared more tragic family news, just days after the joyous occasion.

Oprah's father, Vernon Winfrey, is dead at 88

Beloved television journalist Oprah Winfrey has revealed that her father, Vernon Winfrey, has died at 88 years old. Winfrey made the announcement by sharing a touching video, which shows gospel singer Wintley Phipps honoring Lee with a song during his recent appreciation barbeque. "Less than a week ago we honored my father in his own backyard," Oprah captioned the post. "Yesterday with family surrounding his bedside, I had the sacred honor of witnessing the man responsible for my life, take his last breath."

In response to the news, celebrities and fans rushed to send their well wishes to Oprah. "Lovely tribute to your father. Sending you all my [love]," actor Reese Witherspoon commented. While a fan wrote, "As you said to me when my mother passed, 'Now you have an angel you can call by name.' So sorry for your loss."

Vernon's official cause of death has yet to be announced; however, Oprah previously revealed that she threw her father an appreciation party because he was "ill."
