Oprah Winfrey's Partner Stedman Graham Is Isolated in Their Guesthouse Due to Coronavirus Fears
The TV legend revealed their current living arrangements. She explained the fact that she is more at-risk due to a pre-existing medical condition. Her longtime partner has not tested positive for the coronavirus.
Oprah Winfrey is just one of the millions of people across the nation ordered to shelter at home because of the growing pandemic, though she says that she has more than enough to keep herself busy.
Stedman Graham, is self-quarantining himself at their guesthouse, out of an abundance of caution amid the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Oprah he is perfectly fine with the arrangement, and he still gets plenty of human contact. Oprah said:
"My friends say 'Oh, isn't Stedman upset? He's really not. He's happy to keep me safe."
LOVE THAT TAKES CARE
According to Oprah, Stedman was late about taking the pandemic seriously. He didn't see why everybody was getting so upset about it. And that's why Stedman ended up at the guest house. Oprah had pneumonia late last year, and she had a bronchial infection.

Today @oprah joined @ariannagab for an Instagram Live to fill us in on what she’s doing while she’s social distancing—and just like the rest of us, it’s made up of reading, binge-watching, and pancakes. But there was one person missing: @stedmangraham. Although he does not have the virus, the couple decided that Stedman should quarantine separately in the guest house after several recent flights and some business travel. We’re happy both Lady O and Gentleman Graham are both safe 🙏🏽 Tap the link in our bio for more!
Stedman arrived from Chicago on Thursday and had been on various planes across the country, speaking in St. Louis. Oprah says they must be on social distancing, and it doesn’t mean to go to sleep in the same bed together.
