Harpo’s mom, Vernita Lee is talking about Nohr Robinson, the WW II vet, who claims to be Oprah’s real daddy. She’s got some strong words for the man. Pop the hood.
Oprah Winfrey was not happy when reporters questioned whether she was willing to take a paternity test after an 84-year-old Navy veteran from Mississippi came forward claiming to be her father. This week, in an exclusive interview with N’Digo magazine, Winfrey’s mom said a paternity test is not necessary. “I never seen him before,” she said.
In the N’Digo interview, Vernita Lee said that she thinks Robinson is after some cash:
“I really think this is outrageous for that man to say that and I don’t even know him,” Lee told the magazine, according to NBC Chicago. “He wants Oprah to give him some money. That’s why he’s saying he is her father.”
Vernita, who reportedly had lint in her own pocket in the past, could tell him to just wait in line for all that.
