Oscar winning Memphis-born actor Morgan Freeman and The Dark Knight star is reportedly headed for divorce with his long-time wife Myrna Colley-Lee of 24 years although no papers has been filed as of yet. News broke of Freeman, who has been stated to have been separated since December 2007, after his tragic one-car crash over the weekend which left nerves damaged in his arm which had to be repaired at the Regional Medical Center (The MED) in Memphis, TN. His publicist, Donna Lee, initially tried to clear up rumors about the female passenger Demaris Meyer, 48, and owner of the car that Freeman was driving, which stated that the two were in a relationship.
According to Freeman’s attorney and business partner for his Ground Zero club chain, Bill Luckett, the two are just mutual friends. Meyer is reportedly a FedEx worker and big time supporter of Freeman’s Ground Zero blues clubs and brings groups.
Morgan Freeman and Myrna Colley-Lee wedded in 1987. Freeman was previously wed to Jeanette Adair Bradshaw from 1967 until 1979.
Meanwhile, Kathy Stringer a spokeswoman for the Regional Medical Center has stated that Morgan Freeman has been discharged from the hospital.
