Oprah Winfrey is being sued yet again! This time it’s being filed by a former flight attendant on Oprah’s private jet. According to Reuters, the woman’s name is Corrine Gehris, who claims she was fired for having sex with chief pilot Terry Pansing last June.
Gehris says her fellow flight attendants, Myron Gooch and Kirby Bumpus, who is Gayle King’s daughter, made false claims about her, which led to her being fired. She and Pansing were dismissed shortly after the accusations were made, even though they both passed polygraph tests.
Gehris also claims that on this particular flight, Oprah and her fellow flight attendant Bumpus were both sound asleep after taking sleeping pills, so couldn’t prove sexual misconduct.
Gehrls is seeking more than $75,000 in damages from Oprah’s production company Harpo, as well as from Gooch and Bumpus.
We’ve definitely heard about hanky panky occuring between flight attendants and pilots, but it sounds like this story was completely made up! Finally, we agree with the woman suing. At least she has a case!
