Gayle King

Victorious in Matchmaker Lawsuit

2/11/2012 2:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gayle King no longer has to worry about that pesky matchmaker lawsuit -- because a judge in California agreed with her side of things ... and tossed the lawsuit out. 

As TMZ first reported, King was sued last year by a matchmaker named Orly Hadida, who claimed she rendered her services to King for free in exchange for an appearance on Oprah Winfrey's show (which never happened). 

But King fought back, claiming California law states that oral contracts -- which is what Orly claims they had -- involving "dating services" are void and unenforceable.

A judge agreed, ruling earlier this month in King's favor and dismissing Hadida's lawsuit.

Just in time for Valentine's Day ...

Sooooo basically Gayle promised this women she would be on Oprah's show in return for this woman's services but went back on her oral promise and the judge sided with Gayle.

I wonder did Gayle know BEFORE she accepted the woman's services that Cali law does not enforce oral contracts re dating services????

Congrats Gayle. You won against the lawsuit but showed that no one, except maybe Oprah, can trust you orally. I'm sure you stick to your oral arrangement, I mean agreements, with her

Oh for crying out loud. The rich black woman screwed over the matchmaker.

Nothing but an upscale black brawl at Denny's.
