TheDailyBeast: Oprah's Biggest Feuds

8 of 17

Oprah vs. Janet Jackson

In the wake of the tragic death of pop legend Michael Jackson, his three children were thrust into the media spotlight. Oprah interviewed the children and Jackson’s youngest sister Janet wasn’t happy about it. According to the New York Daily News, she “didn’t think the kids should have done it.” The National Enquirer also made similar claims, alleging a source told the tabloid that Janet was “furious” that Winfrey “took advantage” of Michael's children for ratings, using them as “pawns.” On the day the show was filmed in 2009, Jackson reportedly called Oprah and told her, “You make me sick!” Neither Winfrey nor Jackson confirmed the rumors, but nine months later, Jackson appeared on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" to talk about her brother’s passing and her niece and nephews. "They're dealing with it," Jackson told Oprah.
