A flight attendant who worked on Oprah Winfrey’s private jet is suing the talk show star over false allegations that she had sex mid-flight.
Corrine Gehrls, 39, claims that fellow flight attendants, including the daughter of Winfrey’s best friend Gayle King, had made the accusation that caused her to be fired – namely, that she had had sex with a pilot while Winfrey and other passengers slept on-board during a flight. However, despite having passed a lie-detector test, Gehrls claims in the lawsuit that she was not rehired and is now seeking more than $75,000 from the two flight attendants and Winfrey’s production company, Harpo Inc.
