Oprah Blackmailed

(antiMusic) It reads a bit like a convoluted plot to a mystery novel touted by her book club, but Oprah was the target of a blackmail scheme. Or was she?

An Atlanta man claimed to have damaging audio tapes and demanded a ransom not to release them to the public. Just what was on the tape and how Oprah was directly involved is not known at this time. TMZ had a bit on the story and here is part of their report:

The man, Keifer Bonvillain, is accused of illegally recording phone conversations he had with a Winfrey employee about her and her business. According to the charges, he then asked for $1.5 million from a second person, described as a Winfrey "business associate," to destroy the tapes and his notes.

The charges go on to say that Bonvillain threatened to sell the information to the tabloids or write a book about them. [you can read more at the full story link] - Click here for the Full Story
