Morgan Freeman Affair With Step-Granddaughter is "Absurd"
CLARKSDALE, MS - The Morgan Freeman sex scandal is picking up steam. The National Enquirer reported more than a month ago that the 72-year-old Freeman carried on a decade long affair with his 27-year-old step-granddaugter, E'Dena Hines, beginning when she was a teenager.
The affair, according to anonymous sources cited by The Enquirer, led to the break-up of Freeman's 25-year marriage to his second wife, Myrna Colley-Lee. The two are in the middle of a bitter divorce right now.
His rumored affair with Hines has been hot news for the last several weeks on gossip websites, remaing tabloid fodder, until Monday, July 27, 2009 when MSN posted a link to the story on its' homepage.
"People have been talking about it," says Daryl Bell, the managing editor of the Clarksdale Press Register.
Freeman, a Mississippi native, owns several properties in Clarksdale, including his Madidi Restaurant. He's a hometown hero to most here, thanks to his generosity and the celebrity he brings to the small Delta town.
So when The National Enquirer broke the Hines' story in June, Bell says his paper passed on it.
"In my professional opinion," he tells myEyewitnessNews.com, "we didn't think it was a story. The Enquirer only had one anonymous source. We came to the conclusion it was a tabloid rumor."
Freeman's PR team says it's a non-story, too. When myEyewitnessNews.com called Freeman's publicist, Donna Lee, she declined comment, even though she had no problem giving the media information last year after the actor's car wreck.
For this story, however, Lee referred us to Dave Falkenstein, a media consultant at the high-profile PR firm, Sunshine, Sachs and Associates out of New York City. The same agency was recently hired by Michael Jackson's family to handle the press.
"I am not going to dignify anything reported by The Enquirer," Falkenstein tells myEyewitnessNews.com. "The story is totally absurd. They have no sources. Only ridiculous things are printed by The Enquirer."
Back in Clarksdale, Freeman fans are not quick to believe the rumors.
"The National Enquirer has broken big stories," says John Dalton. "But on this one, I'm not sure. My reaction is that Morgan Freeman is a great actor and I have great respect for him. And his personal life is a private matter that I probably wouldn't comment on to the media."
Dalton and John Steffan are Chicagoans on a blues pilgrimmage through Memphis and Clarksdale. They have reservations at Madidi on Wednesday, and as Steffan admits, reservations about The Enquirer's story.
"Boy, I don't know," say Steffan, "that's a serious allegation. I would want more facts than that if I was going to believe it, I guess."
But seeing the article pop up on MSN's homepage Monday gives at least one journalist reason to believe this story might have legs.
"We haven't touched on it," says Daryl Bell with the Press Register, "but that may change in the next 24-hours. We'll decide then if we're going to take it from there."
E'Dena Hines is the biological granddaughter of Freeman's first wife. She was raised by the actor and his second wife, Myrna. Hines attended several Hollywood events with Freeman, including last year's premiere of The Dark Knight.
cuz, if this story na true, Morgan no try at all at all....how could this so called rumor have ruined his marriage though? That is if it is ony a rumor....is the bitter divorce also a rumor? holla right back at ya....:bouncy
TM, as he dey help raise am, he also dey check her proportions out....how disgusting!
Gbu pu asu!!! Tufia! Don't do it Morgan I'm begging you please don't do it! Morgan is the don when it comes to acting (reminds me of our own Uncles Olu Jacobs, Pete Edochie, Enebeli Elebuwa). Maka why would he want to marry that girl? On what grounds?
Does anyone read the post above? I guess I need to open a new thread....
He says is not true...
Do so...for now, I believe the story 99.6%.
why do you believe the story?
he's denying it, and saying it's not true
me i was hoping that the morning show i heard it on, that they were joking.
as to your why he is getting a divorce, welllll, he was caught in that accident with the friend of the family and he might have been having an affair with the woman in the accident.
that might be why he is getting a divorce. not because of the girl.
but we'll stay tuned.
but i'm just curious, why do you believe that he is marrying his granddaughter?
I just got out of a lonnnnnnnnnnng meeting, so please someone explain how a person is a step granddaughter...thanks!
ok follow this.
Morgan married wife A.
Wife A has a child from a previous relationship.
The child from Wife A's previous relationship has a child (let's call her Hines)
Morgan and Wife A divorce.
Morgan marries wife B
Morgan and Wife B adopt Hines and raise her.
this is bizzare.
Not as bizzare as Jermaine Jackson marrying the ex-wife of his elder brother Jackie and having kids...
So thier kids are first cousins and half-siblings.... Uncle-Daddy....
are you serious? this really happened?
that's just like my brother marrying the ex of my other brother?
ah! my sisters and i will kill the two both of them o. ho-ha.
i don't care how amicable brother A is with the ex, brother B ain't marrying her.
how awkward is that for the kids? yuck!
but back to morgan and this crazy...it is as bizzare as jermain jackson though...if it is true how can you marry the baby you raised?
Why do I believe the story: To irritate the queens boy sidney. LOL
But seriously, I had already heard and read the details of him and another woman some months back were he got injured in a car accident. However, when I was watching the clip above, I thought that the lady was this step granddaughter and I was like if there is a bitter divorce pending then there must be some truth to the story. In addition, there are other details of the saga that the enquirer is busy reporting… from what I hear, although the enquirer magazines are known to sometimes spread supposely false rumors, and the story is denied, later on, we hear otherwise and the enquirer is usually close to the truth….
According to the Enquirer:
“Myrna, his soon ex-wife to be, said E'dena (the step-granddaughter) told her that when she was a teenager, she and Morgan went to dinner at a friend's house one evening. Both had been drinking and when they returned home Morgan attempted to have sex with her. They stopped just short of having intercourse," After that incident, a relationship started between the two....a close family insider told The Enquirer.”
Hmmm, so I am not sure although I certainly pray that it is not true as I like Morgan very much especially after watching his movie called Shawshank Redemption ….One of the best movies of all times. I will be very disappointed if this story is indeed true. Well, we live to see.
Yup.... But it was Randy's baby mama he married
"Shortly after separating from Maldonado, on 18 March 1995, Jackson abruptly married Alejandra Genevieve Oaziaza, who is also the mother of two of his brother Randy's children. The couple had sons Jaffar, born in 1996 and Jermajesty, born in 2000"
Jermaine Jackson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Did you know he became a Muslim??
Woody Allen did it!
What is wrong if he became a Muslim? No wonder I heard him say that Allah had taken Michael away as people did not appreciate him or so....Yes o Woody Allen did it with his step daughter....i wonder if they are still married? what is this world coming to?...some will say it is a step daughter but the thing is, he helped raise her like his daughter for pete's sakes....ewwwwwwwwwww.
No, it's just if you read his history, you wonder if he is serious or if this is another phase for him...
I was weak when the Woody Allen story broke...
He probably is with the nation of Islam....there is a difference. Jermaine among the brother's was different o....he was another La Toya in the making
Nation of Islam are not muslims... And I think he became Sunni...
