Oprah Winfrey and her boyfriend, Stedman Graham, are finally back together after spending some time apart from each other. As most know, the world is currently on lockdown at the moment due to the coronavirus pandemic.
BET reported that Mr. Graham was late to the party in terms of social distancing due to being on the road a lot in the last few weeks. However, after finally finishing his obligations, Stedman is back home again with his longtime partner.
Despite the fact he wasn’t diagnosed with COVID-19, Stedman is doing the responsible thing and choosing to self-isolate for at least 14 days. It’s probably a wise move considering Oprah just recovered from several serious conditions, including a bronchial infection and pneumonia.
On the 2nd of April, Thursday, Oprah and her man shared their reunion on The Oprah Winfrey Magazine’s Instagram page. When Graham got home, Oprah greeted him with a song sung by two former students who worked in Oprah’s Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls.
Winfrey jokes to him that she bets he appreciated them a lot more now, and he said to her in response, “I appreciated you before, honey,” while giving her a hug. 2020 has been a particularly turbulent time for Oprah as well, considering she recently was inflicted by media controversy for backing out of a project.
As it was previously reported, Oprah was in the middle of executive producing a documentary revolving around the allegations against Russell Simmons, the Def Jam Recordings co-founder. However, in what appeared to be a last-minute decision, Oprah backed away from the project.
According to the media mogul, she decided to leave her position as the executive producer because she felt many of the allegations hadn’t been explored enough. Oprah’s decision had consequences for the filmmakers, who claimed they lost their distribution deal with Apple TV + because of her.
It was through their relationship with the media mogul that they were given the opportunity in the first place, so when she rescinded her support, it all ended there. Furthermore, Oprah claimed she felt the film wasn’t ready for release either.
