A homeless man has popped up out of nowhere to claim he’s Oprah Winfrey’s long-lost brother!
The media mogul’s father, Vernon Winfrey, told The National ENQUIRER that he was flabbergasted to learn Danny Dunston, 67, claims to be his secret son!
Former truck driver Danny insisted he’s not after his billionaire sister’s fortune, and said just meeting her would be a “blessing.”
“Several months ago Danny just turned up, and said I was his daddy!” Vernon, 83, told The ENQUIRER.
“I was shocked! I didn’t know whether to believe him or not. But I’m too old to get blood tests and DNA and things like that.”
Big-hearted Vernon has taken Danny under his wing, and allowed him to hang out at his barbershop in Nashville, Tenn.
“I don’t mind having him around,” admitted Vernon.
The still-spry senior citizen works nearly every day, but hasn’t seen his famous daughter in nearly two years, and is terrified at how she’ll react to her secret sibling.
“Oprah has been a real fine daughter!” Vernon gushed. “I’m worried she might be angry about him just turning up.”
Danny claimed Vernon met his mother, Dilcy, in Tennessee, and got her pregnant when he was just 16. Dilcy raised him in Florida and died 10 years ago.
“My mother told me just before she died who my daddy was, and where he worked,” Danny — a divorced dad who lives in a church-run shelter — told The ENQUIRER.
“I was very surprised. I came up to Nashville from Florida, where I was living, and got to know Vernon.”
About a month after they met, Danny dropped the bombshell that he was Vernon’s son.
