Oprah Winfrey and her stepmother have agreed to part ways. On April 1, Time reported that the media mogul’s legal battle with her father’s former wife will end with Barbara Winfrey vacating the $1.4 million Nashville home she shared with Vernon Winfrey up until their divorce last year.

Barbara Winfrey has been given 60 days to vacate the property after Oprah agreed to give her an extension instead of evicting her without notice. A previous offer of a new home in Nashville was declined by the former Mrs. Winfrey when she refused to sign a confidentiality agreement about her famous ex-stepdaughter.

This isn’t the first family feud between Oprah and Barbara Winfrey. In 2012, the OWN head honcho purchased her dad’s Nashville barber shop out of foreclosure for $475,000, but his then-wife told WSMV-TV she wasn’t happy that her rich stepdaughter got involved.

“I know what is going on. I’m tired of it, and I’ve had enough,” she said. "People are giving him the wrong advice and it's leaving me in a situation,” she said. “His daughter doesn't care about the community. His daughter doesn't care about the barber shop. But I do."
