Oprah Winfrey can breathe a little easier now that the defamation lawsuit pending against her has been settled.
As previously reported, the former headmistress of her Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls, Nomvuyo Mzamane, filed a lawsuit against her saying that she defamed her character.
After hearing about a sex abuse scandal at the school, Oprah was quoted saying that she “lost confidence” in Mzamane and was “cleaning house from top to bottom” at her academy.
According to Mzamane those remarks have since made it hard on her to find a job.
Lawyers for both parties released a statement Tuesday saying that Oprah and the former headmistress met to settle their differences.
A portion of the statement reads,
“The two parties met woman to woman without their lawyers and are happy that they could resolve this dispute peacefully to their mutual satisfaction.”
No details on the settlement have been released.
The sex abuse case for the school is still pending.
