Mogul and mega star Oprah Winfrey has always been transparent about her story. In a recent interview, she recalls a time where she wanted to give up on life after she became pregnant at the age of 14 by her uncle.
“I hit rock-bottom. I became pregnant and hid the pregnancy. I’d intended to kill myself actually. I thought there’s no way other than killing myself. I was just planning on how to do it. If I’d had the Internet, I might not be alive because now you can just Google how to do it.”
She also revealed that she had a miscarriage.
“I was, in many ways, saved by that, and I made a decision that I was going to turn it around.”
