Is Oprah Winfrey feuding with Tyler Perry? Rumors that the two were at each other’s throats surfaced this week, but E! News has clarified that everything is totally fine between them. The site reported that Oprah’s BFF Gayle King set the record straight, taking to social media to debunk the rumors.
“Just reading @Oprah @tylerperry are angry w/each other not speaking. If that’s true (it”ain’t”)must have just happened 10 min ago,” Gayle tweeted.
Just one week ago, Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry were together to celebrate 800 episodes. They posed for a photo with the cast and crew, and both were wearing huge smiles. Clearly there isn’t any kind of feud going on between them!
“Perry is in contract to release all of his television projects on Winfrey’s OWN Network, a partnership that has only flourished since the initial agreement in 2012. Just a day ago, the Precious producer celebrated a major television milestone—800 episodes in the bag.”
Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry have been friends for quite some time and they really do support each other in business and in their personal lives. As BET points out, Tyler Perry is a dad to a newborn and that may be the reason that he’s not hanging out with Oprah as much… The bottom line is, however, that these two are still friends and all is well despite the negativity that some outlets would like to have you believe.
