A dorm matron at Oprah Winfrey’s all-girls boarding school in South Africa is being investigated for a “serious claim of misconduct.

Oprah Winfrey has expressed concerned over the allegation, saying, “Nothing is more serious or devastating to me than an allegation of misconduct by an adult against any girl at the academy.”

“I will do everything within my power to ensure their safety and wellbeing,” Winfrey said in a statement.

The headmistress of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy has agreed to take a paid leave of absence to ensure an impartial investigation.

No other details are available at this time.

This comes just days after Oprah Winfrey revealed her medical condition.
