Oprah's relationship with Weinstein highlighted amid presidential rumours

Oprah's relationship with Weinstein highlighted amid presidential rumours

In a fiery Instagram post Wednesday, Seal republished a pair of photos of Winfrey with disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, including one in which she appears to be kissing the producer's cheek.

Seal has taken to Instagram to question Winfrey's friendship with Weinstein, writing: "Oh I forgot, that's right. you'd heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed (sic) actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into. My bad." He also added the hashtag #SanctimoniousHollywood.

Oprah Winfrey is one of the most beloved figures in Hollywood, and her emotional and now infamous speech at this Sunday's Golden Globes not only further secured her place as Hollywood royalty, but had people seriously eyeing her as a viable presidential candidate. "Hmm. Let's just say we've all heard things about each other, haven't we", so the model, who is now pregnant with her second child with singer husband John Legend, wrote, which received many likes.

'For too long, women have not been heard or believed, ' Winfrey said.

"I've been processing the accounts of Harvey Weinstein's ugly behavior and haven't been able to find the words to articulate the magnitude of the situation", Winfrey said. However, a rep for Winfrey said, "Oprah has not spoken to Harvey Weinstein directly".

"Sooooo, are you going to post Heidi's picture too being that she was friends with him as well".

The talk show host's widely-applauded speech focussed on the plight of sexually abused women and the "MeToo" movement.

'Again, this was not an attack against Oprah, this was an observation on the toxic nature of Hollywood. And please keep showing that courage and coming forward because that's the only way we get to solve this thing. Via his lawyer, Weinstein has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
