Oprah Cocaine Addict? Ex-Boyfriend Cook tells all.
Just a couple days before Oprah launches a week long Obama inauguration celebration, unsavory details have been leaked by multiple sources that cocaine might have been a secret problem. One source publishing this story is always looked at with the typical “eye roll” and chuckle, the National Enquirer. The real source of this story however, seems to be a pretty solid source since it was one of Oprah’s past lovers.
Randolph Cook is getting ready to have his revealing book hit the shelves titled, “The Wizard of O: My Life with Oprah.” Mr. Cook had a 6 month love affair with Oprah Winfrey and he claims there encounters were littered with sex, drugs and typical Hollywood drama. Not only does Mr. Cook claim Oprah was using cocaine with him but he also claims she was under the influence of cocaine while recording her hit talk show.
The book gets pretty descriptive of specific situations Cook had with Oprah. This quote reveals a graphic description of Oprah getting high while she made a “rock” of cocaine and baking soda in the tube and heated it, which is known as freebasing, Oprah “then put the lit torch on the rock, inhaled and held the smoke in her lungs for a long time. When she finally exhaled, she began to shake violently as she put the pipe down, she had trouble catching her breath and her eyes got big as saucers.” Mr. Cook goes on to reveal more of their cocaine experiences which led to being under the influence during show tapings, “We smoked at least a couple of times a week. Sometimes we would smoke up until her limo was waiting to take her to the studio to perform her show…A few times, she was still under the influence while doing her show.”
If you are a strong follower of Oprah you probably are aware she has admitted to doing cocaine before. Oprah said on her show that she had “tried” cocaine in the 1970′s because she was madly obsessed with a drug dealer. But the dates of the Randolph Cook relationship don’t fit into the 70′s, they fall into 1984. Cook states that he was taught by Oprah how to smoke crack cocaine and their wild experiences of sex and drugs began.
So what exactly is driving Cook to dump all of this revealing information in public right before Oprah gets even more exposure due to the Obama campaign? A death bed. Randolph Cook was diagnosed with esophageal cancer and he was given two years to live. Mr. Cook wants his story told and everyone to know the truth about Oprah before he dies with problems he says are because of Oprah.
It’s possible that Mr. Cook is just bitter and upset that his clock is ticking and Oprah is still flying high. There is more rubber that meets the road coming from the “oh-so” credible source, The National Enquirer. The Nation Enquirer claims they found a 17-page court document at the National Archives and Records Administration in Chicago in 2007. The Enquirer was investing Oprah’s past and is now ponying up their findings alongside their new publication and Mr. Cook’s book. The document their revealing is titled, “Defendent Oprah Winfrey’s Answer to Plaintiff’s Amended Complaint at Law,” and it basically lays out proof that Oprah and Cook had a hot sexual past while doing cocaine around each other.
It was only months ago that Oprah was crowned as the #1 Powerful Celebrity in 2008 by Forbes Magazine. You can read the Forbes article here. With Oprah pulling in $275 million a year and launching a new network called the, “Oprah Winfrey Network” it remains to be seen if she’ll remain bulletproof in the eyes of America and on her balance sheet.
