Morgan Freeman and E'dena Miles

According to recent stories in the media, Morgan Freeman, 72, is planning to get married to his 27 year old step-granddaughter, E’dena Miles.  The National Enquirer claims the couple  will get married as soon as Freeman’s divorce from his second wife Myrna comes through.

The Shawshank Redemption actor has allegedly been having a decade long sexual relationship with E’dena. The affair is supposed to have started when E’dena was seventeen. The National Enquirer states that Freeman’s wife – when learning about the secret romps –  had threatened to sue E’dina as “correspondent, as an adulterer, in my marriage”.

E’dena and Morgan have no biological connection — she is the granddaughter of Morgans first wife, Jeanette Adair Bradshaw — but Morgan and Myrna were instrumental in raising E’dena since she was a young child.

A family insider has reportedly told the Enquirer that Freeman has led E’dena to believe that he wants to marry her, and that “becoming Mrs Freeman is E’dena’s goal”.

Morgan Freeman has not commented on the issue so far.
