Oprah addresses arrest rumours

 

Oprah Winfrey has denied reports she was arrested and her home raided by law enforcement. The 66-year-old talk show host and media mogul became one of Twitter's top trending topics last week after rumours began circulating on social media that she, along with other celebrities, had been arrested for sex trafficking. After being made aware of the rumours, Winfrey took to Twitter to dispel them. She told her 42.8m followers: ‘Just got a phone call that my name is trending. And being trolled for some awful FAKE thing.’ ‘It's NOT TRUE,’ she added, ‘Haven't been raided or arrested.’
