"People either come from a place of Love or Fear"

Based on the clip Oprah showed, if I were her grandfather, I'd be so P.O.ed.  She basically called him a coward who's too scared of losing his money to share it with his family after he paid for her entire education.
I agree.  It would be very hurtful to have a person you helped so much publicly call into question your basic values.   She seems very transparent to me in both the Oprah interview and the clip I found from the Johnson film.  I think it's interesting that he is so willing to vilify people with wealth, yet he is still living off the family fortune.  I also think this is the very reason that many people like Warren Buffet do not believe there is value in passing along wealth through inheritance.  If these people, would truly focus on the gifts they have been given (good upbringing and education, connections, etc.), they stand a chance to be incredibly successful and happy in their own right.

Look at 3:40.

She admits that has asked for money in the past from him.

And in that article she did ask for money for futon.

Perhaps her past behavior was what caused him to act that way.

Kind of strange she is asking him for money for futon. What about her parents?
