A former flight attendant who worked on Oprah Winfrey's private jet is suing the media titan for more than $316,000. Corrine Gehrls, 39, says she was wrongly fired over accusations she had sex on board with chief pilot Terry Pansing, 57, in June while Winfrey and other passengers slept, according to the New York Daily News. The lawsuit claims Myron Gooch, a flight attendant, and Gayle King's daughter Kirby Bumpus made the accusation that led to the firings. The employees reportedly passed lie detector tests, but were not rehired. A spokesperson from Harpo, Inc., had no comment.—ZH
