Oprah's Mom Sued For Not Paying Her Bill!
Sep 04 | by Natasha
The recession has even hit Oprah's mama. Lady O's mom, Vernita Lee, is being sued by high-end fashion store Valentina Inc. because of a past due bill of over $150,000. Vernita lives in Milwaukee and O is clearly not footing the bills of Vernita's open ended charge account with the store. According to Us Weekly: As of July 1, she has racked up a bill of $155,547.31 in purchases and interest, according to the complaint. (Lee was required to make a minimum monthly payment of $2,000 to the store, the paper reports.) Valentina attorney Joseph Niebler, Sr., told the Sentinel that at some point Lee stopped making the monthly payments. He added that the store had tried to resolve the bill before filing the lawsuit and continues to pursue a resolution out of court. The store is asking for full payment plus interest, the complaint says. (Lee has until a Sept. 19 hearing to answer it.) Vernita says she doesn't owe a damn thing and has hired three attorney to get her out of this mess. But she refused to comment about it when asked. I have a feeling Vernita needs to stop playin' and move in with Stedman and Oprah since she's having money issues. Actually, it's not really "money issues" when you're running up bills at a fashion store. It's not like she had a bill for groceries. Sounds like she just needs to be reminded that her ass is not her daughter Oprah and, therefore, does not have that Oprah money. In other news... Happy 27th birthday Beyonce.
