Morgan Freeman and his wife of 24 years, Myrna Colley Lee, are getting a divorce, Freeman’s lawyer said this week. This news comes after Morgan Freeman was in a devastating car crash with a female passenger near midnight on Sunday night.
Myrna Colley Lee is a costume designer and is not the mother of any of Morgan Freeman’s four children. Apparently the divorce had begun long before Freeman’s recent accident and the couple hadn’t been living together since December, 2007.
Morgan Freeman is still recovering from the accident at the Memphis hospital known as the Med. It is unknown whether Myrna Colley Lee was one of Freeman’s friends and relatives who visited the actor at the hospital on Tuesday.
