Oprah Winfrey buys dad's barber shop

Los Angeles - Oprah Winfrey has purchased her father Vernon's barber shop out of foreclosure after one month of being in the financial state.

The media mogul's parent had the men's hair salon in Nashville, Tennessee, and his wife - Oprah's stepmother - is apparently angry about her buying it.

Barbara Winfrey told NBC station television station WSMV-TV: "I know what is going on. I'm tired of it, and I've had enough."

Vernon has run a barbershop for 50 years and it is considered a fixture in his community.

A year ago, he and Barbara bought a new building, refurbished it and moved the business into it.

Filed for divorce

However, Barbara revealed that they owed the bank $481 000 and that the business was only worth $350 000 before the bank auctioned it off.

Oprah was the highest bidder and completed the sale for $475 000.

In a statement to MSMV, Oprah's spokesperson confirmed the purchase. The representative said: "[Vernon] will continue to manage the business of a day to day basis."

Barbara claimed that 80-year-old Vernon is taking bad advice from people, without naming her stepdaughter, Oprah.

Vernon filed for divorce from Barbara on Tuesday.
