Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham

Oprah Winfrey is undoubtedly one of the most highly recognizable women on the planet. Her longtime romance with Stedman Graham, however, has been kept low-key. The two met at a charity event way back in 1986, and since then, he has been the main man in the media mogul’s life for over 30 years. While they opted not to marry, their bond and commitment go beyond contracts and papers.

The couple said that walking down the aisle would only complicate things, saying that their romance wouldn’t have lasted if they were married. Nevertheless, Graham has always been by Winfrey’s side through ups and downs, especially during her heyday. Since increasing her Hollywood credit score, she has also not forgotten how the businessman took care of her and prioritized their relationship. Well, they may not be married legally, but they are definitely married by heart.
