Back in 2009, The National Enquirer ran a story alleging Morgan Freeman was deadset on marrying his then 27-year-old step-granddaughter E’Dena Hines. It sounded too far fetched to be true but it was fun to play around with for about a week.
Now, in 2012, three years later, Morgan felt the need to deny these rumors. He starts off by saying he never addressed the rumors because he didn’t want to dignify the stories by commenting but now he has to say something because “mainstream media” outlets have been picking up the reports. What? Really? Three years later? Has Freeman been living in a bubble?
“The recent reports of any pending marriage or romantic relationship of me to anyone are defamatory fabrications from the tabloid media designed to sell papers. What is even more alarming is that these fabrications are now being picked up by the legitimate press as well.”
E’Dena has also issued a statement … saying, “These stories about me and my grandfather are not only untrue, they are also hurtful to me and my family.” TMZ
Aw, guess things didn’t work out for Freeman and Hines. I’ll go ahead and file this under breakups.
