Iconic Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman appeared in a propaganda film released this week propagating neo-McCathyist lies against President Trump and Russia to delegitimize last year’s election results. Considering the man’s checkered past, it is no surprise that he would embark on such a disreputable campaign. Freeman was accused years ago of having a bizarre incestuous relationship with his now deceased step grand-daughter.
Back in 2009, Freeman failed his wife, Myrna, and was in the process of abandoning their relationship of 25 years. Many outlets reported that he left Myrna to become romantically involved with E’Dena Hines, Freeman’s step grand-daughter who he raised since she was a child. She regularly attended red carpet galas arm-in-arm with Freeman, with the duo regularly sharing public displays of affection between each other.
“Myrna said Edena told her that when she was a teenager, she and Morgan went to dinner at a friend’s house one evening,” insiders said to Hollywood Gossip. “Both had been drinking, and when they returned home, Morgan attempted to have sex with her.”
Hines was tragically stabbed to death in a gruesome attack outside of her New York City apartment back in 2015. After the news of their alleged affair hit the press, Freeman was conspicuously silent. It took him three full years to finally address news of the controversy in a public statement.
“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,” Freeman said to TMZ in 2012.
After her death, Freeman said the following about Hines: “Her friends and family were fortunate enough to have known what she meant as a person. Her star will continue to shine bright in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. May she rest in peace.”
Only Freeman and those close to him know the true nature of the relationship between he and his deceased step grand-daughter. Hollywood stars, especially those like Freeman with many skeletons in their closet, would be wise not to lecture Americans from their ivory towers lest they want to enable more anti-establishment candidates like Trump to receive unexpected political victories in the future.
