Oprah Has NOT Demanded Stedman Graham Marry Her, Despite Report
According to the repeatedly disproven National Enquirer, Oprah has told Stedman to “either to propose or to hit the road.” The tabloid quotes what it alleges is a “long time pal” of Oprah’s saying she’s “walking off into the sunset, and it’s up to Stedman if he wants to be by her side as her husband.” The same ill-informed or possibly made-up source adds, “It’s probably the most overdue nuptials in showbiz history, and Oprah wants a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer from him. If it’s ‘no,’ she’ll walk.”
The publication then claims “another source” contends, “To the people close to her, it’s not a surprise that she finally wants to get married after 30 years.” “She’s always been a workaholic, and put her personal life second to work, but now she wants to settle down in a quiet life with Stedman,” concludes the seemingly concocted insider.
So, has Oprah really given Stedman a marriage ultimatum, and he needs to either propose or she’ll “walk”? No, it’s completely false. A rep for Oprah exclusively tells Gossip Cop it’s “not true.”
Of course, one shouldn’t be surprised by the falsity of this story from the Enquirer. The supermarket tabloid has a history of publishing fabrications about the talk show host. In the past, Gossip Cop busted the magazine when it alleged Oprah suffered a “terrifying heart attack drama.” At the time, the often discredited outlet claimed she “collapsed with crushing chest pains shortly after leaving her show,” and needed a “risky, four-hour surgery” to save her life. Not one of those claims was true, and neither is the latest about Oprah pushing Stedman to pop the question.
