Gayle King: Oprah Is Not Blue Ivy's Godmother

Posted: Updated:

Gayle King denied rumors that Oprah Winfrey is the the godmother of Beyonce and Jay-Z's daughter, Blue Ivy.

On Friday, the CBS co-host and Winfrey's best friend said the reports were "absolutely not true." "She's friends with them, of course, and likes them both very much," King said. "She's working on sending them a baby gift. She hasn't even had time to send a baby gift because she's been away."

King was responding to Internet rumors that Beyonce and Jay-Z had chosen Oprah to be their daughter's godmother after growing close to her over the years. Her statement also appears to contradict reports that Oprah already sent this fitting baby gift.

King added, "Let me just say, if true, it is news to her. It is news to her. You know, she was heading to South Africa when the baby was born." Oprah was attending the first graduation of the school she established for underprivileged girls in South Africa.
