Brandy Comes Clean To Oprah About Fake Marriage


In a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey, singer Brandy Norwood reveals why she lied about her fake marriage. In March 2002, the singer went on The Oprah Winfrey show where she announced she had gotten married in a secret ceremony.

With so much pressure from her family and the media about pregnancy out of wedlock, Brandy lied to world by saying that she was married to her daughter’s father, music producer Robert.

“I think the last time you were on the ‘Oprah’ show, you told me a little fib. Did you not?” Winfrey said. Brandy then responds, “It was a big fib.”

“I felt the pressure of having to be perfect. And I was scared… At that time, being pregnant out of wedlock was not a trend. It was a sin,” Brandy shared. “I thought that everything that I have worked hard for and everything that I worked to build — the image that I worked so hard to build — was threatened.”

Realizing her mistake, the 35 year-old apologizes to Oprah. “I’m really sorry for that,” Brandy says. “I mean, you just don’t lie to Oprah!”
