Oprah Winfrey has asked a court to either dismiss the defamation lawsuit filed against her in Philadelphia last month by the ex-headmistress of her South Africa girls school, or order that the matter be settled in arbitration.
Nomvuyo Mzamane accuses Winfrey of falsely implying that she wasn’t trustworthy, and of making such statements as, “I thought she cared about the girls of South Africa” in the wake of a sex abuse scandal at her Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls. Tiny Virginia Makopo, a dorm matron who worked under Mzamane, was charged with abusing six students last year. She has pleaded not guilty to 14 related charges in a South African court.
Mzamane’s lawsuit seeks more than $250,000 on five defamation and related counts from Winfrey and her production companies, reports the Associated Press. Winfrey denies making any false or defamatory statements and argues that the federal suit should not proceed in Pennsylvania.
This chick ought to be ashamed of herself. All that foul sh*t went down on her watch, then has the nerve to try to dig all up in Oprah’s pockets. She doesn’t stand a chance in hell.
