Oprah Injured on Her 59th Birthday

Oprah Winfrey injured her back for lifting a heavy flower arrangement sent for her by actor/playwright Tyler Perry on her 59th birthday.

The talk show host and philantrophist revealed about her birthday misfortune on Twitter.

She posted:

“In bed with an ice pack most of today. Moved a bushel of roses sent by @tylerperry and sprained a back muscle #birthdaylove.”

In Oprah’s next tweet, she attached a photo of her surrounded by flowers. Are these the ones that caused her back injury?


Meanwhile, Perry apologized to Oprah and her fans via Facebook and Twitter for the incident:


I like to send really large flower arrangements to people for whatever occasion. Well, I sent one to Oprah yesterday for her birthday. She strained her back picking it up. No joke! Feel better Oprah. Happy birthday. Sorry. 🙁 Next year I’m sending her one rose. 🙂

Oprah responded:

“No need to feel bad, love the roses and got an extra day in bed. Can you say #icepack”
