Whoopi Goldberg will not ghost a partner based on their age.

In response, cohost Joy Behar argued that a large age difference “could be problematic,” saying, “Sixty and 80 starts to get a little hairy.”

That’s when Whoopi dropped a bomb on her cohosts, saying, “Actually, I’m just gonna say this to you. One of the last relationships I had, he was 40 years older than me.”

The news came as a shock to the table, with Joy asking if the man was still alive, to which Whoopi replied, “Mm-hmm.” As Whoopi herself if now 68, that would mean the Ghost actress’ former flame would be around 108 years old as of 2024.

News of Whoopi’s much older partner was first made public by her granddaughter Amara Skye, when she appeared on season one of the reality show Claim to Fame.

“She had a boyfriend that was, like, 90 years old, and she used to go hang out with him,” Amara confided in a fellow contestant in an August 2022 episode of the show. “Some old, white man named John, and he was like a billionaire.”
