Terry McMillan

We’ve all seen the classic film How Stella Got Her Groove Back about a 40-year-old woman (played by Angela Bassett) who enters into a steamy relationship with a 20-year-old man. Well, the writer of that story, Terry McMillian, based the content on her real-life circumstances at the time.

Unfortunately, the marriage to Jonathan Plummer ended in disaster when he admitted to McMillian that he is gay. McMillan confronted her ex about his lies while on Oprah Winfrey’s talk show, and she sued Plummer for $40 million by claiming that he launched a smear campaign against her and married her for U.S. citizenship.
