The rumor mill has been churning with this one for quite a while, and now Morgan Freeman has issued a statement denying the gossip that he’s planning on marrying his step-granddaughter.
Back in 2009, the National Enquirer ran a report that he'd been seeing his step-granddaughter, a then 27-year-old E'Dena Hines, for 10 years, and the rumor continued this week with the claim that Freeman intended to marry Hines.
On Thursday, the Oscar winner went on the record about what he called “fabrications” regarding his love life.
Both the 74-year-old star and Hines - the granddaughter of Freeman’s first wife, Jeanette Adair Bradshaw - released statements refuting the claims.
“The recent reports of any pending marriage or romantic relationship of me to anyone are defamatory fabrications from the tabloid media design[ed] to sell papers," the twice-married “Million Dollar Baby” star told CNN in a statement."What is even more alarming is that these fabrications are now being [picked up] by the legitimate press as well."
E'Dena Hines told CNN that "these stories about me and my grandfather are not only untrue, they are also very hurtful to me and my family."
Freeman and Bradshaw divorced in 1979 after 12 years of marriage, and he and second wife, Myrna Colley-Lee, divorced in 2010.
GO MAKE SOME BASKETS.
Don't care about his personal life, love his acting. But spreading slander about someone having an incestual relationship with his step-granddaughter is just unacceptable.

Excellent points altogether, you just received a logo new reader. What could you recommend about your post that you just made a few days in the past? Any sure?
Hey there, You've done an incredible job. I will definitely digg it and in my opinion suggest to my friends. I'm confident they'll be benefited from this web site.
Anyone who buys/reads the National Enquirer is... well CNN won't let me use those words.
Why is this man still making movies? He's 74! Holy crap! I would be retired and trying to enjoy what time I have left on Earth with my gajillion dollars.
Because he loves what he does? Because he's 74 and understands that being 74 is not nearly as old as *you* think it is? Because he's been rich for a long time, so has already done all those things you can only dream about?
That enough reasons for you?
Because he's good at it and I think he enjoys it.
Now I know where the rumor came from. The National Enquirer. I can't say I'm shocked that the tabloids would circulate a rumor, but I'm such a cynic that I thought, "It could be true. Why couldn't it? Just because he always plays a good guy doesn't mean he is a good guy. I don't know him". Just kind of funny that I now realize one of my friends who should have known better repeated second-hand news from the tabloids to me as fact.
I love Morgan Freeman's voice. He should narrate everything. (or James Earl Jones)
You GO, Morgan!!! Bang that young booty! Ain't nobody's business but your OWN!
He looks good for 74.
Please not another Woody Allen (although in Woody's case he is a pig). Have never seen anything else that he has been associated with. Please Morgan Freeman – don't let us down.
as the next guy posted there not blood related. So its a 74 banging a 24 year old is it any different than Hugh Heffner god bless both of these men and their money. MEN UNITE
They aren't blood related, so if they want to date, doesn't matter much.
Disney Nature Presents Woody Allen
Please don't let it be true. I always respected him. We don't need any more Woody Allens, Roman Polanskis or closet pedophiles.
Pedophile? his step grand daughter is almost 30.
Man, seeing that this guy is now banging his granddaughter i have a requesti: can hollywood re-make Invictus using Denzel playing me instead of this creep? Or maybe james earl jones? thanks. , love Nelson Mandela
One of my favorite actors. I hope he sues for defamation of character. You gotta admit for his age he's looking pretty good!
Love Morgan Freeman. He is one badass actor.
If Obama had a crazy uncle, he'd look like Morgan Freeman!
damn! so wrong.. so.. damn.. funny!!!
I am kinda proud of him. I wish I could date a young girl.
When it comes to anything in Hollywood nothing surprises me. Just because he is a great actor does not mean the he is a great husband. He was creeping when he had that car accident or don't people remember that. And after that episode his 2nd wife divorced him
Freeman: " No, she's marrying me, not me marrying her. I have more money. Now will you let me get back to the 96 more movies I have to appear in this month as the only black man in China, the only black man in Iceland, the only black man in Burma, the only black man...in the whole movie.
Make certain you report posts not relevant to the conversation; that might help maintain a reasonable discourse here.
Now-the woman involved in what can only be called slander if it's not true has also denied these allegations.
Morgan Freeman, please don't be another Woody Allen. I will lose all respect for you.
With two ex-wives, I'm surprised that this was the only lie that he has had to deal with.
dont make fun of rednecks
The Poop That Took A Pee. Chapter 1. Douglas had to poop. His butt was all stinky because he had to poop so badly. There was a gross woman named Rebecca who was sunbathing all naked, and she was fat. Douglas walked up to her and said, "I need to poop." "Okay," Rebecca replied, "I like poop." Douglas squatted down over the fat sunbathing lady and went poop. The poop sat there on Rebecca's boobs looking like a wiener. Chapter 2... "Why are we here?" Douglas cried as poop came out his wiener, in a long, thin strip. It was... wiener poop, which is the grossest poop of all.
Ah, yes, the US education system at its finest. I guess this is what you get when you let the grade 3's use the computers at lunch time.
You must be an idiot, What does this have to do with the article?
If he can still get it more power to him. It is the capitalist way.
youre an idiot.
I read this whole thing Morgan Freeman's voice. I bet you did too.
I didn't realize I had until you said that! LOL!
Not just any voice, but his "Crazy Joe" voice from Lean On Me...LOL!
Yeap, me too.
I am willing to bet that a huge majority of those critical of Mr. Freeman have themselves been guilty of cheating on their wives, girlfriends, or boyfriends.
You know the old saying about throwing rocks at glass houses.
He's a great actor, but if it was true that he was dating his step granddaughter, that's pretty disgusting.
If this were confirmed, the same crowd that would be disgusted by this is probably the same crowd that, when they see a much older woman with a young, attractive man say, “Ah, love knows no age. This is a beautiful thing.”
But since Morgan has a penis, it MUST be evil, right?
Ummmmm, no. I think it's more of the step granddaughter thing that we find disturbing. Do you think before you speak (post)?
Good actor, but not right in the head.
And you believe this crap? I think it is YOU who is not right in the head.
I don't get what would be so scandalous about it, even if it were true. Is it the age difference? Because older men and young women is nothing new, and if she was 27 in 2009 she is quite old enough to consent. Is it the fact that they are "related?" Because they aren't. An ex-step-grandaughter is hardly incest. They have no blood ties, and technically they never had any legal ties. He divorced her grandmother in 1979, and according to the numbers given in this article she would have been born in 1982. Genetically and legally, she is not related to him. So why is it disgusting?
Because she would have been 17 and he 61 when the "affair" began. I hope you don't have a job, say with the IRS, and YOU are the one to look over my taxes. Read The Article!
The article doesn't even explain why people would think two family members are dating.
YEAH RIGHT!!!!!!! WHATS THEIR CHILD GONNA BE...STEP/INCEST/GRAND DAUGHTER/NIECE
That is just gross. Hope it's not true and if not, whomever started it needs to get a bit of the same medicine.
"What is even more alarming is that these fabrications are now being [picked up] by the legitimate press as well."
I didn't think legitimate press still existed between Fox's conservative spin and HLN, er, CNN, letting farts from Apple or burps from Snooki make the Top Stories.
Oh great ... now he HAS to marry her, just because of these but-holes.
... and what's so wrong with marrying his step-granddaughter anyway? lots of people do it.
he is not as innocent as you think he is – show mw one black person who dose not screws around
Don't care about his personal love life, enjoy his movies immensely.
Even if it is true it is not his blood kin and it would be ok in gods eye. If mr freeman wants to date a 27yr old woman so be it.
He is a great actor and i like his work.
You too huh? Read The Article..... she would have been 17 and he 61 when the relationship began. Still ok with you?
Oh GOD, You Devil...
What's the world coming too??? You know its bad when GOD can't keep a wife and is snuggling his stepdaughter!
What's the world coming too??? You know its bad when GOD can't keep a wife and is pork(ing) his stepdaughter!
Alucard, no one is supposed to know that – Operation Paperclip is supposed to be a secret!
OK, now that we got your attention, who wants to see THROUGH THE WORMHOLE SEASON 3 CONTINUE! WE THE PUBLIC DEMAND MORE!!!!
I believe it! everything is possible in Hollywood ....all because the rich and famous don't have souls! if is true he is too old and DECREPIT , eew!
What a pervert. He should be locked up. His own Grandaughter...Thats sick.
You can't read...that's sad!
Not if, as he has clearly said, it isn't true.
This demonstrates once again the power of the media to influence opinion, and action. Kind of scary actually.
Oh, is that who he was messing around with when he had that car wreck in Mississippi a couple years ago? Right before his second wife divorced him?
nope, that was some other young woman.
Brooks was here.
Shame on the tabloids for giving me such a chuckle at their lack of dignity. But Freeman shouldn't be upset, nobody would believe this crap for a second.
That tabloid is just for laughs. MF is too elite to do something like that. Get a life, people, don't believe everything you read.
I agree 150%.
Why does this guy play the wise old black man in every movie that hollywood makes? My guess is that the jewish casting directors are terrified of being called racist if they turn him down.
The reason he plays every old black guy is would you rather a star be cast or a unknown be cast. Its a bout money. Morgan Freeman has a name and they will use him in a film because of his name. For instance if you were to have a episode or the Browns guest staring Morgan Freeman people would actually watch the browns instead of turning the show off.
I love how every other story about a celeb has a comment by someone that "knows" them. No, no you don't. Sad cries for attention and the need to feel relevant are more likely the truth.
Glad to hear this was all untrue..
He is one of my favorite actors.. I always felt a sense of dignity exudes from him..
Now hearing this rumor I heard a couple years ago, that I hoped was totally untrue..
Is a relief..
As long as there are 70+ year old men with money that can get an erection with Viagra there will always be a 20+ old women that are interested. Relations are secondary.
I have know Morgan and Edena and his ex-wife Myrna for years. This story is absurd. People will believe anything.
The mainstream press became essential non-existent, when they didn't stand up to Micheal Moore or Rush Limbaugh.
Sorry, Morgan, the internet lairs are ruling the day!
I don't know what's worse, the stuff they write in the tabloids or the fact that people buy the things and actually believe the stuff
The National Enquirer has about as much journalistic integrity as Faux News.
Free Mr Clark. Free Mr Clark
Get a life. Why in the world wod you even care.
If this is Maude from the Sikh blog—♪I'm so fresh you can suck my nuts.♪ I'm so fresh you can suck my nuts, swag♪
If it is not, please excuse my freshness.
So many people cry for freedom and equality. What they mean is revenge and reversing the roles.
Enquirer or not, I wouldn't doubt it. He exhibits the deeply disturbed emotional twists common to the liberal elite. They can rationalize anything and make any wrong someone elses fault. Great actor though! Just like most of them: if I just didn't have to hear about their personal lives and what they think. I mean, they are actors! Mentally unbalanced by definition. Yet so many bow to the alter of the Hollywood Gods. Geez! Some actors are so far "out there" that I can no longer watch their movies. Too distracting. Matt Damon for example. Can't watch him anymore.
your an embarassment to society and anyone over the age of 10.
Myyyyy friend E'Dena Hines ...
Who cares about this washed up Mississippi cotton patch ________!
Since when is Manuel Noriega news any more? And yes, he has got to ditch his earring.
I worked with Mr Freeman for 8 months on a film and he was one of the nicest guys I've met in the biz. Truly a kind, decent person, totally unliked 90% of the Hollywoord dirt, and I don't believe this BS attack on him for a minute.
I don't doubt that. I respect him and his right to privacy.
You work for Freeman ...who cares? if is true wich I don't believe it ,are you trying to impress us? I don't care at all maybe you were shining his shoes? lol lol lol
If it's not true, than why doesn't he sue the Enquirer? After all, the onus would be on the paper to prove the legitimacy of the story or pay damages. The fact that he isn't doing this is a good sign that there may be some truth to these 'rumors'.
So you mean Mr.Freeman can`t do what Woody Allen did??
To all, try to be a movie star...And once you are to be ...You can do whatever you feel free...You are beyond a sky..You are a star...And don't take my word seriously.
In a related story. I'm not marrying my cousin. I'm also not taking the bus today. I will be pasing up ice cream after dinner for some pie. Details at 11.
While you're givin' the details, I'm going to lo-jack yo mama.
50 some odd posts deleted by the mods. A new CNN record! Not sure whether to cheer or hang my head in shame.
That's a good start. Now please delete every post by likening and ip ban the namejack troll. I'll love you long time.
Nasty, but typical!
MORE WHITES ON FOOD STAMPS DEAR... ARE YOU UNEDUCATED? Probably – IT SHOWS! lol lol lol
You are asking if someone else is educated. You really should get your facts straight. I am not a racist, but I do happen to work for the welfare office and trust me, there are people of all races on food stamps, but I have to say there are not more whites than other races. And yes, there are reports that keep up with ethnicity. Get your facts straight before posting!
Educated?–> Not more whites than other races YET.
that's why your racist BUTT is POOOOOOR! You can't touch him, he's RICH! bwahahahahahahaha – Now, go back to the gas station and PUMP MY GAS REDNECK! lol lol Got tobacco?
No matter what,it is nobody's business,they are free to do what they like and do not owe an y one explanation,why not leave them live their lives the way they see fit,without putting your dirty nose in it.
If she's 27 and he's 74 and are not blood related, who cares? If that's what makes them happy so be it!!!
The age difference alone is a big yuck to me.
Am I the only one that heard Morgan Freeman's voice in my head while reading his response?
I hope he meant what he said, otherwise it would have been quite disturbing. Stay away from family members (blood related or not)!
There sure are a lot of racists w/nothing to do but spew ignorance. I'll keep praying for you though.
Racist. You make me ashamed to have the same name as you.
I LOVE Eddie Murphy!
Right on Tina.
Is there ANYONE who will tell this man that the earring looks AWFUL!
WHY in hell would he care if someone LIKE YOU, or anyone else thought to comment on his earring? LOL!
wow...how stupid are you?
Another baseless subjective judgement by the peanut gallery.
My gosh people. This is not a story about race. This is a story about an actor and an actress. Why on earth have several low class individuals injected race? The statements of these two actors are pretty rationale and legitimate (I have no way of knowing what the actual truth is) and are not based on race. Why can't our country see past race and judge everyone as individuals?
You're making sense. You need to stop that.
Actors – plural or what? I know he is, but is she too? Don't think so. He should marry her because he has been f'n her long enough.
CNN now has INFINITE story possibilities. You can report on things people are not going to do. If you have trouble getting them on the phone, you can just speculate on stuff that is not LIKELY to happen. Nancy Grace is gonna love this.
No, wait don't be too hasty, I'm sure Missy is right that Morgan Freeman is on food stamps, and not richer and more wildly successful than a Walmart cashier such as herself could ever dream of being.
HE'S GOD IN MY BOOK !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't let Obama hear you say that.
Maybe his friend Fidel gave him the idea.
He's not gonna marry his step granddaughter, their just gonna live togethere so she can still get welfare & food stamps.
nice, so you are a bigot and a racist
I found the comment that the story is being picked up by the legitimate press. Since when was CNN legitimate? CNN is nothig than extention of the of the Democratic Party.
Do you have any evidence of this?
I didn't think so.
Then why do you come to this site and post such drivel?
Got to FauxNews.com.
I have proof!. Not more than 3 weeks ago, this website was posting on it's frontpage right corner the picture of Michelle Obama for a political fundraiser drive. I thought it highly liberal as I have not see a republican ad anywhere. CNN is a liberal new organizatiion.
Lets see, you think Fox is a legitimate press source, LMAO.
And yet you're obviously reading CNN and posting..Kinda makes you sound stupid.
Yet here you are on a CNN board
LOL Anyway that god through CNN every single day can point it out.
Even on CNN itself, on the front page, it has on the right hand side links to donate to Obama for his re-election and campaign fund. Sometimes the ad shows him and the whole family, sometimes it shows Bo the dog, but yeah it is always for Obama's campaign re-election. You will not find any Republican campaign donation ads on CNN.
Even without that, the coverage of stories or even lack their of is quite apparent.
Sorry god = goes.
extension? more like a strap on
I have to agree to an extent. They are loyal to their sponsors so as not to lose money. CNN has many sponsors, therefore CNN will not mention a sponsor in bad light. For example, when our children are poisoned by some companies' negligence, there name will not be mentioned if they are a sponsor.
I would like to apologize for my statement. As you can see, I am a total freaking idiot.
Yes the National Enquirer has broken some major stories the last few years but that still doesn't mean we should always take them seriously. If what they say sounds far-fetched, it most likely is made-up.
Indeed. That the National Enquirer has gotten one or two stories right in, what?, thousands of issues spanning decades is absolutely no rational reason to start blindly believing anything they publish.
Even Newt thinks CNN is more balanced than Fox...
Can anyone say "Woody Allen". That was far-fetched also.
LOL Because Newt felt Fox did not cover him enough.
However, that is neither here nor there, this is about Morgan Freeman.
There is an old saying...Believe half of what you see and none of what you read.
Good, i thought that was really nasty regardless if they were family or not.
Now my image of God is back to normal. :)
Cool. So he's still invisible and fictional, then?
Me too Lissette I also thought it was true and it really disgusted me.
You're kidding, right?
Either way, Mr Freeman has more class than you could ever hope for
CLASS? ha ! ha ha ha , oh please you won't say that if Freeman were not rich and famous! he is a cheater he got caught in a car accident with another woman wihile he still married! Class? lol lol lol
I am astonished and dismayed at the racist mentality in this country. Here is a suggeston: Get a life, get an education and shut up!!!
Racist???? You're hallucinating. Again.
That's because the comments Loretta was referring to were deleted. Probably reported. Good job CNN!
I second that!
What the heck is racist about reporting this story? Ever heard of Woody Allen you dim bulb. Go back to your own, hate-filled existence.
Why is the race card being played and/or argued about? Morgan is a great actor, but at the same time he is also a reknowned run-around. He marries Black ladies, but then runs with White ladies, which has been the biggest part of his scandals. A few years ago he was hospitalized for a long time after an accident involving him and his (longtime)white lady after a night of clubbing and drinking. He was leaving his wife for her. Go to his life on Wikipedia...you will see.
Why would anyone believe anything the National Enquirer says?
Someone must have emailed CNN or something.
Please fix the Report Abuse button so we can go back to policing ourselves. It's been broken for weeks now.
Tina = Missy = Arabic Symbols Guy: Um because they've been totally right about some major things. Like John Edwards and Rielle Hunter.
If you believe everything a tabloid has to say then you truly are misguided.
NE also knew about Tiger Woods a year before the "accident", but they were forced to suppress the story.
The National Enquirer broke the Monica Lewinsky scandal. It's crazy but sometimes they get it right.
"Morgan? Woody here. Woody Allen. Trust me, it's worth it, but hey, if these rumors are false, can you text me her phone humber?"
I believe everything these Rag Mags print. My favorite is "True Confections." I first started reading them in prison, and now that I've paid my debt to society, I read them while I’m waiting in line at the supermarket just like everyone else. If you can't believe them who can you believe, Lawyers!!! What a joke, don’t believe anything you read and only half of what you see is my motto.
Do you mean Elvis isn't really living on the moon with Hitler?
because that's where THE truth is! HAven't you seen Men in Black? come on!
Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
