Oprah Settles Defamation Lawsuit

3/23/2010 8:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah Winfrey has settled a defamation lawsuit with the former head mistress of her school for girls, according to Oprah's lawyers.

Nomvuyo Mzamane had claimed Oprah made defamatory comments about her after the 2007 sex abuse scandal at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.

The trial was scheduled to begin Monday in Philadelphia, and Oprah was expected to take the stand.

Lawyers for both sides say Winfrey and Mzamane met face to face before the settlement.

UPDATE: Oprah settled for $450,000 which she promptly handed over to the Octomom so she could keep her home.

That woman should've gone to trial against Oprah, i'm so tired of everybody kissing Oprah's ass as if she's GOD. I would've never settled out of court with her, i would've allowed jury to tell me what my case was worth against her.

Oprah thinks she is superior to everyone, so she can slander anyone she wants at anytime she want. She even thinks she knows better than the experts she invites onto her shoW!
