Oprah Winfrey played a dramatic, behind-the-scenes role in the divorce of her best friend Gayle King, The ENQUIRER has learned.
"Oprah advised Gayle to get out of her marriage," a pal told The ENQUIRER.
During her satellite radio show, Gayle recently dropped a bombshell – revealing why she divorced William Bumpus after 10 years of marriage and two children.
"I was married to a cheater," Gayle announced.
"I went to marital counseling. I have been divorced since 1993, so I’m all healed."
But Gayle did not reveal that she found the strength to end her marriage thanks to her closest pal.
"Oprah told Gayle that if Bill was cheating on her, she had no other choice than to get out of the marriage," revealed an insider.
