OPRAH Winfrey is a household name around the world and has interviewed countless high-profile figures.
Hailed one of the most influential women in the world, the talk show queen, 67, has led a colorful life both on and off screen.
Who are Oprah Winfrey’s ex-boyfriends?
Oprah’s first love was her high school sweetheart, Anthony Otey.
The two reportedly spoke of getting married, but Oprah broke off their relationship during her senior year.
Otey is said to have kept dozens of love notes the pair exchanged.
Months after breaking up with Otey, Oprah began dating William “Bubba” Taylor.
The pair met at Tennessee State University and it is understood Oprah helped him get a job at WVOL radio station.
They parted ways in 1976 after dating for five years when Taylor was unwilling to move with Oprah to Baltimore.
During the 1970s Oprah also dated John Tesh.
Their relationship was only brief, however.
Tesh, a pianist and producer, went on to marry actress Connie Sellecca in 1992.
Oprah then started up a relationship with fellow WJZ-TV reporter Lloyd Kramer.
She has described their time together as “the most fun romance” she ever had.
When Kramer moved to NBC in New York, Oprah reportedly had an affair with a married man who had no intention of leaving his wife.

He alleged they did drugs together during this time.
In 1997, Cook tried to sue Oprah for $20 million for allegedly blocking a tell-all book about their supposed relationship.
In the mid-1980s, Oprah had a brief fling with movie critic Roger Ebert.
Oprah credits Ebert, who died in 2013, with advising her to take her show into syndication.
They co-hosted the Chicago Emmy Awards in 1986.
