Oprah Winfrey

A second scandal at Oprah Winfrey's school in South Africa has led to the suspension of seven students.

According to Us, the Leadership Academy School for Girls charged the girls with sexually harassing classmates — although details are being kept under wraps. In a statement, Winfrey said, "I'm disappointed that several of our students chose to disregard the school's rules. It's disheartening when any student has to be suspended or expelled and it's a process that involves serious review and consideration. We insist on maintaining a campus environment that commands mutual respect, fosters academic excellence and encourages learners to fulfill their best potential.

"Indiscretions resulting in disciplinary action are common in schools all over the world. Unfortunately, because of my name these common infractions place the Academy in the media spotlight," the talk show host said. In 2007, a dorm matron was dismissed from the school after she was arrested amid allegations that she abused students.

A rep for Winfrey's production company could not immediately be reached for further comment.
