Oscar winning actor Morgan Freeman’s divorce from his wife of 25 years just got really ugly — accusations that he indulged in a decade-long affair with his own step-granddaughter are raising some serious eyebrows. The National Enquirer says
E’Dena Hines is the granddaughter of Morgan’s first wife, Jeanette Adair Bradshaw, and was raised by Morgan and Myrna “since she was a little girl.”
The relationship between the 72-year-old actor [and his 27-year old] step-granddaughter began when she was a teen.
“[When E'Dena] 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,” the source, a close family insider [said].
Unbeknownst to [his wife], the relationship continued for years. E’Dena has also been Morgan’s escort to several public events.
“Nobody thought anything of it, because she would be introduced as his ‘granddaughter.’ It’s not technically incest, because they are not related by blood…[but] Morgan is trying desperately to keep his divorce out of open court so all the shameful facts won’t become public.”
The great thing about incest is that it virtually eliminates that awkward “getting to know you” phase. Plus, if either one of you ever needs a kidney, chances are good that you’ve already got a match. That’s what you call a win-win, baby!
