Rumor redux: Is Morgan Freeman marrying his step-granddaughter?

Morgan Freeman, 74, is reportedly set to marry 27-year-old step-granddaughter, E'Dena Hines.

Rumor redux: Is Morgan Freeman marrying his step-granddaughter?


Here’s a not-so-new report that’s been making the rounds a few years.

Nearly three years after the National Enquirer alleged that Morgan Freeman was dating his step-granddaughter (“Morgan Freeman ‘incest’ shocker,” read the understated headline), come reports that the 74-year-old Oscar-winning actor plans to wed the 27-year-old in the very near future.

Citing “insiders” in Morgan’s life, the Enquirer claimed in June 2009 that Freeman’s affair with the then-25-year-old E'Dena Hines had been going on for nearly a decade, implying he began sleeping with her when she was 15 or 16, adding to the creep-out factor.

The glossy tabloid claimed Myrna filed for divorce in 2008 over the affair.

E’Dena’s mother, Deena, was adopted by Freeman when he married her biological mother, Jeanette Adair Bradshaw in 1967. Their marriage ended in 1979 and Freeman wed Myrna Colley-Lee in 1984.

The same exact reports – that the alleged couple were to wed – surfaced in the fall of 2009 and in late 2010, when Freeman’s divorce with Myrna was finally finalized. (See Wendy Williams discuss the story on her show in July 2010.)

Freeman has not discussed the matter.

Believe what you will.
