During his appearance, he spoke about the recent death of his father, Rocky.

He said their relationship was “complicated,” and he was raised with “tough love,” and that his father was “not an ‘I love you guy.’”

“I often feel that when someone passes, you now have an angel you can call by name,” said Oprah.

“The day he died, that night I went to bed, I felt so grateful and moved. Because I realized, oh wow, I have a new relationship with you. Clean slate. No regrets. No pain. No complications. Just me and you,” he said.
