Something has gone awry between Oprah Winfrey’s longtime boyfriend Stedman Graham and his niece.
Courtney Shelton, the 36-year-old daughter of Stedman’s sister Anita, is reportedly writing a new tell-all that claims to expose the secrets of Winfrey’s mysterious relationship with Graham.
Shelton is said to be shopping the book to literary agents in a bid to get it on to bookshelves, a publishing source exclusively told The Enquirer.
“I was very shocked at the picture she painted of her family,” the source said. “She describes – in a written pitch – Stedman’s ‘abuse’ toward his family and how Oprah turned a blind eye to everything!
“She also claims some members of her own family treated Stedman’s daughter from a past marriage very badly.”
Per the Enquirer:
Stedman, 63, a motivational speaker, became engaged to marry Oprah in 1992, but the pair never wed and now say theirs is more a “spiritual union.” His daughter, Wendy, was born in 1975, before his divorce to ex-wife Glenda.
The ENQUIRER tracked down Atlanta-based Courtney to ask her about the exposé, and she confirmed she’s peddled it to “a select number of agents” over the last three months, but has yet to ink a publishing deal.
