Oprah Winfrey’s family tree grew a bit larger, she revealed to her audience today, which was a blessing after the sad deaths of her two younger siblings. Oprah’s brother Jeffrey passed away 22 years ago, but they were not on good terms. Read on to see why Oprah’s brother Jeffrey Lee was estranged from her and his sad fate.
Oprah Winfrey and her brother were not speaking at the time of his death in 1989. He told the National Enquirer shortly before he died of AIDS that his half-sister had effectively disowned him, though Winfrey has not discussed the source of their dispute.
Now Oprah has newly discovered sister Patricia Lloyd, a blessing for someone who has lost so much family, both to disease and to the tabloid bug.
