Oprah Winfrey - Oprah Winfrey Buys Half-sister Dream Home

Media mogul Oprah Winfrey is helping her half-sister achieve her career goals by paying for her college education and buying her a new house.

The Tv titan-turned-actress shocked fans of her talk show in 2011 by revealing that she had been reunited with her long-lost sister Patricia Lofton, who had been given up for adoption by their mother Vernita in 1963, when Winfrey was just nine years old.

Now it has emerged that Winfrey has been helping her younger sibling make ends meet by giving her a monthly allowance so she can quit her job and focus on her studies.

But that's not all - Winfrey also surprised Lofton with the keys for a $490,000 (£306,250) four-bedroom home in Wisconsin for her and her kids, according to the National Enquirer.

Her representative says, "Patricia's greatest dream was to go to college and become a social worker. Oprah wants to support that dream."
