Did Morgan Freeman bring out his E’Dena Hines, his lover & step-granddaughter?


If you prefer to think of Morgan Freeman as the voice of God, narrating the movements of penguins, then you just need to stop reading. Go find that post about Christina Hendricks’ boobs. So… last night, Morgan Freeman was honored with an AFI Lifetime Achievement, completely well-deserved considering Morgan has spent decades doing solid-to-great work in Hollywood, and especially considering that the AFI hands out “Lifetime Achievements” to just about anyone these days. The blonde woman that Morgan has his arm around has been identified in the past as his publicist, and some say she’s his “girlfriend” too. It’s a possibility, totally. Morgan could be dating his publicist following his divorce last year.

But Morgan also brought out some of his family for the event. My eye went to the young woman in the pale pink dress. It that his step-granddaughter/lover E’Dena Hines? I can’t tell. CB looked at the photos, and she doesn’t think it’s E’Dena – go here to see an older photo of E’Dena. The chick in these photos has a very similar face, I think, but I can’t really say. You remember E’Dena, of course. Shortly after Morgan got into a car accident with his rumored mistress, the Enquirer began getting lots and lots of suspiciously stories about Morgan’s history of zipper problems. According to well-placed sources, Morgan had been having a ten-year affair with his step-granddaughter (the granddaughter of one his ex-wives, no biological connection to Morgan). E’Dena was considered the real reason he and his last ex-wife divorced. E’Dena was considered the reason why the divorce, the settlement and all of the proceedings were so hush-hush. The Enquirer also had reports that E’Dena wanted to settle down with Morgan, get married and have his children. That was the last I heard about it – Morgan was free, and E’Dena was pushing to make it official. And then Morgan began stepping out with this blonde publicist woman. It’s interesting, right?

So, I have two theories. One, E’Dena got dumped, flat-out. Two, E’Dena and Morgan are still together, but it’s still very hush-hush, and Morgan goes to events with his “official” lady. I really don’t know. But it’s all kind of gross.

    I don’t know if he was with E’Dena or not. Let him deal with his God if he was.

    His tribute is well-deserved. The younger woman looks familiar, but I can’t place her.

  2. Sumodo1 says:

    Who cares? It’s Morgan Freeman. Shawshank, anyone?

  3. Venice says:

    Why is he wearing one black glove?
    He deserves the award. No comment about his step grandaughter.

  4. ladybert62 says:

    I just cant get over being creeped out by him! Sorry Morgan – you were a decent actor (not great, but good) and you ruined your image with me (just like bad boy Mel did) – reality trumps the make believe of movies! Sad.

  5. Blueflie says:

    What’s up with the Micheal Jackson glove?

  6. Roma says:

    No, I don’t believe that is E’Dena.

  7. Eileen says:

    I hate that I adore this man….if the stories are true. But wow-what a talent he has. He makes every movie he’s been in.

  8. rylan says:

    Doesn’t that look like Holly Robinson Peete who I adore?

  9. yepp says:

    aside from the “bucket list” i have loved every movie that he has done . he is very talented. i think its gross but who am I to judge.. ( i wonder if he and woody allen have brunch)

  10. Mia says:

    @venice & bluefile: the black glove is from the accident. I think his hand and arm got pretty mangled in the crash.

  11. Eve says:

    I still love his acting, but man…when I read about that story I was so grossed out I didn’t even know what to think about him anymore.

    The woman in these pictures doesn’t look like his grandaughter.

  12. lin234 says:

    He always plays the mentor or wise person in movies so I can’t help but be grossed out when I see him in those roles when I know how gross he is in real life.

  13. DreamyK says:

    No Morgan for me. He is on my Hell No list that includes Mel Gibson, Tom Cruise, Lohan, Kelsey Grammer etc..

  14. really says:

    Morgan is such a twat!

  16. Dizzybenny says:

    nothing was confirm, it was just a RUMOR people!
    Well deserved honor by the AFI.

  17. Rachel says:

    He and my mom have the same birthday. Wehn I told her that, she was like “Oh! I like Morgan Freeman.” And I was all so did I until I found out he had a 10 year affair with his step-granddaughter. And she was all “What?!?! Okay, so maybe I don’t like Morgan Freeman.”

    Even now, whenever I hear his voice on those Visas commercials I have to change the channel.

  18. Zombie Nurse says:

    I am more concerned by the fact that the woman in question’s dress appears to have bejewelled nipple covers.

  19. carrie says:

    it’s some rumors and he deserves his AFI

  20. Mari says:

    Some of you are so quick to jump on the rumor mill. It’s a rumor, folks. He’s not dating any woman featured in this article, nor was he inappropriate with his step-granddaughter.
    Source: I could tell ya, but I’m not.

  21. eny says:

    That is interesting how you all say “MF Oh, he’s soootalented1 let’s forget his step-daughter”. WTF? Does anybody remember Roman Polanski? He also is very talented.

  22. aenflex says:

    far as i’m concerned the man can do no wrong. i nkow that’s fairy-glamour, or whatever, but i love him. i’m sorry. not saying cheating is right, but i just love him, he’s so damn hip.

  23. Lala11_7 says:

    I am an advocate of the “where there’s smoke there’s fire” theory…so I do think he was doing something “unsavory” with his step grand-daughter…(who is not in any of the above pics)


    That dosen’t change the fact that he is one of the best actors that America has every produced…and he deserves every accolade that is available for his work…

    My Morgan favorite, besides Shawshank…MY GOD…that last scene…tears me up everytime…

    His role as “Fast Black” in “Street Smart”…one of the scariest characters I have ever seen on film…a movie that introduced us to Kathy Baker’s sexy a–…that made me respect Christopher Reeves as an actor…and made me NEVA look at Ann Marie Hosford quite the same…

  24. Jazmin says:

    Wow! He finally had his rotten nasty teeth removed and bought a nice set of whitey falsies. ‘Bout time!

  25. Owl says:

    Not going to judge Mr. Freeman based on some rumor. What he does in his personal life will never lessen the immense talent he has. At least he has the class to stay quiet about it. My favorite Morgan Freeman movie aside from Shawshank (duh) is RED. Come on…you know you loved it.

  26. Betsy says:

    I thought that it came out that his wife at the time planted those made-up stories with The Enquirer as revenge for him being with the mistress and to help get more when she filed for divorce. Anyway, if it is Morgan Freeman v. The Enquirer then I am Team Morgan. He has played God and Nelson Mandella, after all. LOL!

  27. Amanda G says:

    Don’t really care about his personal life. He is a GREAT actor.

  28. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Having not read the article and still trying to remember the allegations are at this point not entirely verified, that’s still one of the scariest sentences I’ve read in a long time– I don’t care who you are. Gak.

  29. Venice says:

    Thank you Mia. I didn’t realize the glove was still needed. I believe I had seen him photographed lately and guess I didn’t notice it in those photos.

  30. sassenach says:

    You all need to stop spreading this. It is not true and his ex wife was just trying to the upper hand in the divorce. It is well known they had been leading separate lives and they both had moved on but the wife never wanted the divorce.

  31. Lucy says:

    Don’t know if this story is true or not. Just curious though….the people saying that this is his personal life so they don’t care because he is a great actor…how do these same people feel about mel gibson…he had problems in his personal life, but he has been a great/actor director (Braveheart, anyone)…Charlie Sheen held a knife to his wifes throat, but that died down pretty quickly because there were audio tapes or video tapes…just wondering, not defending, why doesn’t mel get a pass too?

  32. Louise says:

    I know people like to throw around the “National Enquire got John Edwards right so all of their stories are true” or the lame “where there’s smoke there’s fire” but NE still lie about 99.99% of their stories. I’m shocked that people are so convinced that this story is true especially without any evidence. Usually when NE is onto something they have photos, emails, etc to really back-up the story. Also didn’t the women in the car sue because the media called her a mistress and she really was just a friend?

  33. Eve says:

    I knew the sources’s stories were pretty strong, but didn’t know they gave the info to The National Enquirer.

    But since some people here are claiming the rumors haven’t been confirmed (yet), I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt then.

  34. RHONYC says:

    that horrendous peach grandma-made-it prom gown is ‘THE’ worst! 2nd that on her ‘lovely’ breast tat. EW! 🙁

  35. Nah, nah, and nah... says:

    This man taught me how to read on The Electric Company and will always be a good memory in the Hollywood in my head. If it’s a lie from the ex or he was on that child when she was a child, there’s a special place in Morgan’s hell for the offender. If it’s true and the woman was grown and making these decisions, I say creepy, but just like he used to sound those words out on the show:


  36. Hannah says:

    I noticed that in Red he had a prosthetic hand in a few scenes, I thought it was some ‘spy-hand-that-will-turn-into-a-gun’ thing, part of the plot, but apparently his hand way very injured in the crash.

  37. lucy2 says:

    I never heard more beyond those NE rumors, so until something else comes out about it, I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt, esp. if it was in the midst of a divorce. My friend’s ex said some unbelievably crazy and untrue things about her during their divorce.
    He is a great actor, glad they gave him the award.

    i just saw him on Craig Ferguson’s show, and he had on one of those compression gloves, but seemed to be doing better.

  38. Emily says:

    I can’t watch him anything without getting creeped out, but I still think he’s a great actor. But his personal life is a major UGH.

    That chick, whoever she is, is hot. She looks like Kelly Rowland, just not scary skinny.

  39. Hannah says:

    That is not E’dena. Those are his children and grandchildren. Either they are keeping things very hush hush, or E’dena is not around anymore.

  40. simone says:

    I forgot to add that you should really consider the source of your information. My God, The National Enquirer. Really?
