Rumors have been circulating that Actor, Morgan Freeman, has been in a 10-year relationship with his step-granddaughter. For some, Mr. Freeman’s lack of response to the rumor was an admission of guilt. For others (like me), a response to the rumor would be ridiculous because the idea of such an affair seems so far fetched.

Well, Morgan Freeman must have recently experienced a “last straw” moment because both him and his step-granddaughter released statements to dispute the reports.

Morgan 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.”

While his step-granddaughter, E’Dena Hines adds:

“These stories about me and my grandfather are not only untrue, they are also hurtful to me and my family.”
