    Media mogul Oprah Winfrey was confronted by a man claiming to be her secret son outside of the Late Show in New York, earlier this month.

    In pictures taken outside the Ed Sullivan theatre, a startled Winfrey can be seen in an awkward encounter with Calvin Mitchell, who has claimed to have been raised by the presenter, before they became estranged 20 years ago. The awkward moment took place after an interview with Stephen Colbert on October 15.

    The star can be seen acknowledging the now truck-driver's presence, putting her hand on his chest as he attempted to engage her in conversation.

    It is unknown whether the incident was unwelcome by Oprah, but according to reports she did talk to the 35-year-old.

    Oprah Winfrey was awkwardly ambushed by her 'secret son' late last night http://dailym.ai/1MVR1oQ

    The Daily Mail have reported that the run-in had been organized by the National Enquirer, with Mitchell keen to mend his twenty-year rift with Winfrey.

    "I'm sorry, I'm sorry, but it was the only way to get in touch with you," Mitchell reportedly told the star outside the studio, referring to a recent interview where he discussed their relationship.

    When he asked if they could speak, she reportedly replied: "Honey I'm on my way to the United Nations right now so I can't talk to you."

    She added: "Calvin, you just take care of yourself."

    Mitchell recently spoke out about his relationship with the media mogul - who he claims referred to him as "her son".

    He revealed that he first met Oprah as an 11-year-old in 1992 when he was chosen as an extra on ABC’s drama, There Are No Children Here.

    After the show, Oprah allegedly reached out to Mitchell’s family and asked to adopt him and while the request was denied by his mother, she remained close to the family.

    Oprah talks to Stephen Colbert about religion on The Late Show.

    He said Oprah helped raise him for five years but when he was a “dumb” 17-year-old he made mistakes and she didn’t forgive him.

    Mitchell told RadarOnline: “I want to ask Oprah, ‘Why did you leave me? Why did you leave me?'

    “We had a close relationship. Oprah and Stedman were like family to me.”

    He told the site that the legendary star coughed up the cash for his expensive education at The Piney Woods School, a prestigious Christian-based boarding school.

    But when he dropped out of the school,Oprah turned her back on the teen.

    “I was young. I made a dumb decision, and Oprah wouldn’t forgive me,” he said. “I feel like what she did was wrong.”

    A representative for Oprah Winfrey has been contacted for a comment on the incident.

    I saw a story about him on Extra last night about him. He met her on the set of a movie and she took him under her wing. She paid for his education. He dropped out when he was 17. He said he went there to apologize to her.

    Another Heartbreak!

    Oprah’s Dad Says Secret Grandson ‘Doesn’t Matter’

    Vernon Winfrey has no desire to see his long-lost 'grandson.'

    Posted on Oct 30, 2015 @ 4:47AM





    Oprah Winfrey‘s dad, Vernon Winfrey has no desire to meet his secret, long-lost “grandson,” Calvin Mitchell, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
    Mitchell, now a 35-year-old truck driver, recently came forward and claimed that the famous talk show host was like a mother to him as a teen, and that they were so close she even wanted to adopt him before abruptly breaking off contact.
    But in another heartbreak for Mitchell, her dad Vernon Winfrey told Radar he had no idea Mitchell even existed!
    “It doesn’t matter,” Vernon told Radar. “I’m alright if I don’t meet him.”
    PHOTOS: Oprah: Through The Years
    Mitchell previously told Radar that he met Oprah in 1992 after being cast as an extra on the ABC-TV urban drama There Are No Children Here and eventually had Oprah so charmed that she even wanted to adopt him.
    He claimed was devastated when Oprah suddenly cut him off after he left the prestigious school for which the TV star had been paying.
    “We had a close relationship,” Mitchell said. “Oprah and Stedman were like family to me.”
    Since then, he said in the interview, he went into a deep depression and never quite healed after allegedly being abandoned.

    So she took him under her wing, and paid for his education, etc, and now he's whining that she's not doing it anymore? Bitch, she doesn't HAVE to. She never had to in the first place, and she doesn't owe you anything. You're not her SON no matter how the tabloids want to spin it.

    That radar article is more stupid than the first. They asked Oprah's Dad about his long lost "grandson."

    This is some trumped up bullshit.
