Report: Morgan Freeman and wife Myrna Colley-Lee divorcing after 24 years
The "Dark Knight" curse continues.
First, he was in a car crash, breaking his arm and elbow, with a female friend of the family in the car with him.
Now Morgan Freeman, 71, is divorcing his wife of 24 years.
According to the New York Daily News, Morgan's business partner told "Access Hollywood" that Morgan and his wife, Myrna Colley-Lee, are "involved in a divorce action."
This news is strangely timed, broken just days after Freeman had a car accident, and the passenger in the late-night crash in Mississippi was Demaris Meyer, 48, a longtime friend of Morgan's wife.
Freeman is due to be released from a Memphis, Tenn., hospital in a few days and has had surgeries to repair his arm and elbow.
Well, sometimes it takes a brush with mortality to make a person take action and make a change in their life. But it sounds as if this might have been in the works before the accident.
Or maybe it was just the last straw.
According to a close friend of the actor, "Morgan has always liked the ladies."
What do you think?
Good luck to Morgan and Myrna. Hope you guys get can through this with dignity, respect and love.
