OPRAH WINFREY REVEALS GAYLE KING HAS RECEIVED DEATH THREATS OVER KOBE BRYANT CLIP
Friday, Feb 7, 2020
Oprah Winfrey is concerned about her long-time friend, Gayle King, who recently came under fire for bringing up the late Kobe Bryant’s sexual allegations in an interview with Lisa Leslie. Oprah tearfully revealed to Hoda & Jenna & Friends that her friend is “not doing well” and hasn’t “slept in 2 days” after receiving backlash for a clip King claims was posted “out of context” by CBS News.
“She now has death threats and has to now travel with security, and she’s feeling very much attacked,” Winfrey dished—adding that “in the context of the interview, everyone seemed fine, including Lisa Leslie. And it was only because somebody at the network put up that clip. And I can see how people would obviously be very upset if you thought that Gayle was just trying to press to get an answer from Lisa Leslie.”
