On Friday, Nomvuyo Mzamane (the school's former headmistress), who was terminated when the abuse charges at the school came to light, filed a lawsuit against O.
Mzamane is attempting to 'salvage her professional reputation' by suing in Philadelphia civil court.
Papers filed say Winfrey "launched what amounted to a defamatory campaign" against Mzamane late last year by implying that Mzamane is "untrustworthy, failed the students of the academy, did not care about the students at the academy, knew of alleged physical and sexual abuse at the academy and participated in a cover-up of the alleged abuse."
Mzamane has said there was no cover-up at the school and she knew nothing about the allegations.
She was supposedly on a business trip in the U.S. when she found out about the abuse.
Also, Oprah is not the only one named in the lawsuit.
Arianna Huffington's blog, the Huffington Post, is also named as a defendant.
The suit filed is asking for a quarter million dollars, plus damages. -via PH
