Oprah Winfrey had already gone into her own pockets for her long-lost half sister, Patricia Lofton, by reportedly giving her a hefty monthly allowance so she can quit her job. But the TV titan has since stepped up her generosity.

Winfrey has purchased her 60-year-old sister a $490,000 home in Wisconsin, according to the National Enquirer.

According to the National Enquirer, Oprah sprang for the 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom property in Wisconsin and couldn’t be more pleased to help out.

“Patricia’s greatest dream was to go to college and become a social worker,” a spokesperson for Winfrey told the magazine. “Oprah wants to support that dream.”

Winfrey and Lofton, who was introduced publicly in 2011 on Oprah’s talk show, share the same mother. But Patricia was given up by Vernita and lived in various foster homes until she was adopted at age 7.

While on a search for her birth mother, Winfrey revealed on the 2011 episode that DNA proved they were half-sisters.

“Oprah was thrilled to meet Patricia. And Patricia is so grateful that Oprah is helping her,” a source told the Enquirer. “But all she ever wanted is to know her family. She didn’t expect Oprah to do anything like this.”

      Right, Jean. This is OLD. The house was featured prominently in one of Oprah’s “where are they now” segments that featured her sister. The interview with her sister was conducted in her sister’s new home. It didn’t take a genius to figure out that Oprah bought the house even thought it was not stated. Also, Oprah is 60 years old; not her sister. Her sister is at least 10 years younger. SHEESH!
