After a tabloid claimed that she was tying the knot with her longtime partner, Stedman Graham, Oprah tweeted that those close to her were inquiring about the report. “Six people who know me well have called today congratulating me or surprised they weren’t invited to my wedding,” she wrote. “IT’s NOT TRUE!!”

Oprah and Stedman, 65, have been dating since 1986, and when speaking with TV show runner Shonda Rhimes last year on SuperSoul Sunday, the 62-year-old star revealed when she first realized she didn’t want to get married.

“The moment he asked me to marry him, I was like ‘Oh, God! Now I actually have to get married?'”

She recalled, saying that her and Stedman agreed to postpone their wedding and then never spoke of it again. “But what I realized is, I don’t want to be married.”

Oprah added, “Because I could not have the life that I created for myself. I couldn’t do it.”
