Tearful Oprah Reveals Gayle King’s Received Death Threats Over Interview About Kobe Bryant

Published: Friday 7th Feb 2020 by Rashad

A guest on Friday morning’s episode of NBC’s ‘Today with Hoda and Jenna’ (February 7), media mogul Oprah Winfrey burst into tears when quizzed on how her best friend, Gayle King, was holding up after the enduring backlash she faced over her recent interview with Lisa Leslie (click here for more on that).

During the sit-down with the WNBA legend, King repeatedly questioned Leslie about her thoughts on the impact Kobe Bryant‘s sexual assault allegations would have on his legacy.   The line of interrogation rubbed many viewers the wrong way, including celebrities who have taken to their respective social media handles to defend Bryant’s honor (click here to read more on that).

Just a day after responding to the hoop-la herself (click here to watch), Gayle’s bestie (Winfrey) has hit the press to carry on in her stead.

“She is not doing well. May I say, she is not doing well because, she now has death threats and have to now travel with security. She’s feeling very much attacked,” Winfrey said.


The statement from O follows scathing and threatening remarks from Snoop Dogg who referred to King as a “dog-head b*tch.”

    • Gworl Bye February 8, 2020

      And yet she’s sitting at home crying and scared over death threats from black Twitter, so she must know something. And didn’t she tell your dumb ass that she doesn’t want you calling her sellout ass Aunty? ?

    Go cry us a river

  5. Re February 7, 2020

    She pressed the issue. She was trying to get a negative answer from Lisa Leslie. She knew what she was doing. I cant stand Gayle. Monique was right about Oprah as well.

  6. Tino February 7, 2020

    Oprah interviewed Michael Jackson numerous of times and said nothing but great things about him while he was alive, but soon as his lying ass accusers change their story when Michael is no longer here to defend himself Oprah interviews them and says she believes them.

    Gayle admitted herself that Kobe was always friendly and nice to her but soon as he dies she brings up a dropped r*** case when she never thought about bringing it up and asking him about when he was alive.

    Meanwhile Oprah has said nothing about her friend Harvey Weinstein or her spiritual adviser who’s currently in prison for s** crimes. Gayle haven’t said anything about her friend Harvey Weinstein or her former CBS bosses that was forced to step down do to sexual assault claims.

    Well, control ya b**** O… you know damn well she was out of line.

    • Fancy BISH February 8, 2020

    • Oh plz February 8, 2020

      Dead ?!!

  8. Okay? February 7, 2020


  9. ERIC February 7, 2020

    Is anyone supposed to feel sorry for her? The problem is she doesn’t think she did anything wrong. She’s blaming CBS for her decision to push her own agenda. Gayle should not be granted anymore interviews as long as she’s going to be unprofessional and question her guests like they’re on trial when they don’t say what she wants to hear.

    • The f*** would whitney say February 7, 2020

      she badgered Leslie even in court you can’t Badger the witness. L8ke she badgered the king of rnb

      • Tino February 8, 2020

    • Tino February 8, 2020

      KOBE and Robert aren’t the same.
      Two completely different men, subjects and cases.

  12. Just Sayin’ February 8, 2020

    Gayle deserveds all the backlash her sellout a$$ getting. She is so damn disrespectful. The world and his family are still in shock of his passing and the only thing Gayle could think to bring up was an old allegation that he was aquitted of. Foh sellout old c***.
