It was reported recently that Hollywood legend Morgan Freeman was having a relationship with his 27 year old step-granddaughter E’Dena Hines and that the two had become engaged. However, Morgan has now denied these rumours and claims that it is shocking that such stories could become so huge.
Freeman explained to TMZ, “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."
Meanwhile, E’Dena Hines also issued a statement denying that any such relationship is going on and admitted that the rumours are extremely hurtful. She said that the claims “are not only untrue, they are also hurtful to me and my family".
Morgan Freeman was honoured at this year’s Golden Globes in January for the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement. He is currently in the process of filming his latest movie Oblivion, which also stars Tom Cruise.
