Oprah Sued Over Alleged Mile High Tryst

10/10/2009 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah WinfreyMany people go out of their way to join the Mile High Club -- but a woman who used to work for Oprah Winfrey claims allegations that she got it on in the air got her fired from her job.

According to a lawsuit filed yesterday, Corrine Gehrls was a flight attendant on Oprah's private jet -- at least until July. She claims two other flight attendants -- one of whom is the daughter of Gayle King -- conspired to lie to Oprah about Gehrls having "inappropriate intimate behavior" aboard a flight.

Gehrls claims she was fired, along with the guy involved in the alleged act -- who happened to be the Chief Pilot at the time.

Gehrls is suing Harpo, Oprah's company, along with the two flight attendants she claims lied about her. She's asking for damages in excess of $75,000.

What does she expect. If she is getting paid to work she should be working not screwing the pilot. Which she doesn't deny.

Give it up. You won't win against Oprah. If she's a member of this club then she probably did do it. I rest my case!

Why do some people feel that they're obligated to a job...no matter what behavior they're displaying. Here's a thought...Maybe, just maybe, Oprah didn't want anybody (besides her) f&c$k'n on her private jet!

STILL NO WORD FROM TMZ AS TO WHY THEY REFERRED TO USHER'S WIFE AS HIS BABY MAMA. funny they have never referred to kate Gosselin as Jon's baby mama or any other married white woman in that fashion.

does this mean we can all sue companies we got fired for. her basis for this suit is silly...i suggest she drops it to save the little money she has left and the humiliation that will follow if she does go ahead with this lawsuit.

I agree with the other poster. You only hear the "baby mama" reference in tabloids etc. when it is what they consider white trash or blacks. I actually hate the term, it seems demeaning.
