Oprah Sets the Record Straight on Alleged Feud with A-List Hollywood Star

Oprah Winfrey has broken her silence to address rumors that she is feuding with the Oscar-nominated Hollywood star Taraji P. Henson, who is currently starring in the musical rendition of *The* *Color Purple*.

While walking the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night, Oprah tried to shut down rumors that Henson was talking about her when she recently sounded off on gender pay disparity in Hollywood.

“People are saying that I was not supporting Taraji. Taraji will tell you herself that I’ve been the greatest champion of this film.” So whenever I heard that there was something that someone needed, I’m not in charge of the budget because that’s Warner Brothers you know that’s the way the studio system works. We as producers, everybody gets their salary everybody is negotiated by your team. And so, whenever I heard there was an issue or there was a problem, there was a problem with a cars or the problem with their food, I would step in and do whatever I could to make it right.

Oprah concluded by claiming that she loves Henson while also trying to dispel further rumors of an alleged feud.

Henson has been using her press tour for *The Color Purple* to expose what she feels is a gender pay disparity in Hollywood.

Henson has yet to respond publicly to Oprah’s denial of their feud at the time of this writing.
