Oprah Winfrey's boyfriend and rumoured fiance Stedman Graham has reportedly pulled out of filming their nuptials for TV.

The longtime partner of the TV chat show queen was said to have agreed to accept millions of dollars from Oprah, giving her permission to televise their wedding ceremony on her TV network. The whole point of the filmed nuptials was to draw in viewers on her OWN station which has suffered a dramatic loss in ratings, but Stedman is said to have gotten cold feet at the idea.

"He wanted to do everything he could to help Oprah’s ratings battle, but now he just can’t find it in himself to make his private life so public! And money was never the reason he’d agreed – Stedman’s a multimillionaire in his own right," a source told the National Enquirer.

"But he’s a very private person, and the thought of exposing himself and his emotions in front of millions of people finally got to him…he just couldn’t go through with it! Marriage to Oprah is what he’s wanted for years, but the idea of doing it on TV for ratings just turns him off."

Do you believe Stedman agreed to this in the first place?
