Morgan Freeman Releases Statement Denying Romantic Involvement With Step-Granddaughter
Morgan Freeman has had enough of the rumors that he got freaky with step-granddaughter E’Dena Hines, so he finally issued a denial.
According to TMZ reports:
Morgan Freeman is adamant … he has NEVER had a romantic relationship with his 27-year-old step-granddaughter E’Dena Hines … and slams all of the reports to the contrary as “defamatory fabrications.”
Morgan just released a statement responding to recent reports that he and Hines have been dating for roughly 10 years and were planning to get married in the very near future.
Freeman’s rep tells us the actor remained silent for years because he didn’t want to “dignify these stories by commenting” … but now he feels compelled to speak out after the reports were picked up by various “mainstream media” outlets.
In his statement, Freeman says, “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.”
For the record, E’Dena is the granddaughter of Morgan’s first wife, Jeanette Adair Bradshaw. She and Morgan are not related by blood.
Well that’s a relief. Blood relative or not — frankly the whole business gave us the heebiejeebies! We’re big believers that where there’s smoke there’s fire though, so do you really believe these two NEVER did the horizontal mambo? After all — he is a man and she is a young tenderoni who isn’t really related to him!
