According to insiders, Stedman Graham, Oprah Winfrey’s lover is sick and tired of the star avoiding his marriage proposals for 30 years – not to mention all the rumors that she’s actually gay can’t feel too good. Now, the man has decided that if she does not marry him he will dump her.
“Stedman has had it. He’s ready to kick Oprah to the curb and leave her for good,” claimed a source close to the couple.
During “an explosive fight around the holidays,” Stedman hit Oprah with an ultimatum – marry him or he’s going to find someone else to wed.
“He’s bitter and humiliated after waiting decades for Oprah’s hand in marriage,” added the insider.
“He told her that he either wants a wedding in the very near future, or he’s jumping back into the dating scene.”
Oprah and Stedman got together in 1986 and got engaged in 1992. Then Oprah’s BFF, Gayle King, seemed to come between them.
Since Oprah was the one who encouraged Gayle to divorce her cheating husband in 1993, rumors have started that the two best friends were in fact lesbian lovers.
However, the entertainment queen denied the rumors saying: “I’m not a lesbian. I’m not even kind of a lesbian.”
In 2011, after her talk show ended she got Stedman’s hopes up by talking about having their wedding in Italy and inviting a lot of celebrities.
“But she never followed through, always putting her career ahead of him,” the source claimed.
During their latest quarrel, Stedman “threw the lesbian whispers in Oprah’s face and accused her of treating him like dirt.”
Oprah was stunned and immediately defended herself but Stedman stormed off.
“After their fight, Oprah apologized to him and said they’d marry soon, and she’ll give him a big chunk of her fortune,” added the source.
“Now that Stedman has finally had enough — she’s begging him for one more chance.”
