O’s Mom: Paying Bills Not One of Her Fav Things

Posted by mattymoe on September 3, 2008

Oprah’s mom might have a lil’ habit her daughter needs to know about.

Vernita Lee has allegedly rolled up a $150K bill since 2004 at a Brookfield, Wi. clothing boutique — and hasn’t paid it back. So now the store, Valentina, is trying to get its money the hard way — in court.

The store’s attorney tells the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel the Oprah-ma hasn’t been making minimum monthly payments of $2,000 for some time.

Our question: Your daughter is the most powerful woman in showbiz, not to mention a billionaire. What gives? We called Mrs. Lee’s lawyer, but haven’t heard back yet.
