Although technically not incest, The National Enquirer claims Morgan Freeman had a decade-long affair with his step-granddaughter. Details of the allegations emerged during his divorce with wife Myrna. The relationship supposedly began like any other when Freeman got E’dena drunk as a teenager. Aww, looks like it was love at first sight.
The relationship between the 72-year-old actor with step-granddaughter E’Dena Hines, 27, began when she was a teen, the source told The ENQUIRER exclusively. The alleged affair not only contributed to his split from Myrna, his wife of 25 years, it also led to his breakup with his longtime mistress, former schoolteacher Mary Joyce Hays.
E’Dena 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 source told The ENQUIRER.
“Myrna said E’dena 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,” the source, a close family insider, told The ENQUIRER.
“E’Dena explained to Myrna that she stopped Morgan from going any further.”
Myrna confronted Morgan, and he agreed to leave E’Dena alone – but unbeknownst to Myrna, the relationship continued for years, said the source.
When R. Kelly and Roman Polanski heard about this, they asked why Myrna and The National Enquirer had to cock block him like that.
