The mother of talk show host Oprah Winfrey says she shouldn’t have to pay her $156,000 debt at a high-end boutique because she shouldn’t have been extended credit there in the first place.

 

      Valentina Inc. sued Vernita Lee of Milwaukee for skipping out on $155,547 in purchases and interest owed as of July 1. The lawsuit claims she fell behind in minimum monthly payments of $2,000.

 

       Lee countersued on Friday, contending that Valentina took advantage of her “lack of knowledge, ability, and-or capacity” when creating her credit account, according to the Associated Press.

 

       Court papers also note that Lee resolved a 2002 case with Valentina over a $175,000 bill, and the resolution prohibited Valentina from extending further credit to her.
