Friends Of Oprah Winfrey's Dad Speak Out After He's Smeared By Wife In Dirty Divorce: 'Everything Is Not As It Seems'
Prostitutes, financial scheming and infidelity are just some of the bombshell accusations that his wife Barbara threw at at Oprah Winfrey's father, Vernon Winfrey, during their divorce.
As RadarOnline.com has reported, the judge in the case even slammed him with $70,000 in Barbara’s attorney fees!
But now, the men who know him best -- Vernon's employees at Winfrey's Barber Shop in East Nashville -- are speaking out exclusively to RadarOnline.com to set the story straight on their boss and friend.
Says "Barber King" David Hiland, "Everything is not as it seems."
Despite the smears that Oprah's father has faced in the media, "Vernon is very, very, very well," Hiland insists. "There's a lot of twists and turns to the story that's out there, and everything is not as it seems."
"He's out of a bad situation and it's business as usual here at Winfrey's barber shop," Hiland continues. "Haircuts are $15 and we give the best ones in town!"
