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.

Ummm....I guess Oprah really didn't read 'The Secret'! If she had, she would have known about the Law of Attraction!

Ophrah is a media whore. She had the money to pay up but wanted the media drama.

Why are TMZ readers si ignorant? You complain about models being too skinny, and O being too fat, make up your mind! O is not fat, and you all are just a bunch of haters. My mom is a lawyer, and settling does NOT equal GUILT. (MJ anyone?) Sometimes with a famous person like O, they don't wanna deal with a headache of a trial, or maybe some other reason, but I hate how you all assume things. You don't even know what was said because you were NOT there. You know what happens when you assume things. Jeez, this is why I rarely post things on here, the comments just make me so angry at how we can be so ignorant. Don't worry Oprah, you still have the hearts of billions!
