Morgan Freeman Finalizes Divorce
After a quarter century of marriage, Morgan Freeman has officially divorced wife Myrna Colley-Lee.
The former couple finalized their divorce in Mississippi on Wednesday, Freeman's attorney William R. Wright confirmed to the Associated Press.
"It was done without a trial," Wright said. "Everybody is glad it's over." Terms of the split are sealed.
The Oscar-winning actor, 73, wed costume designer Colley-Lee in July 1984. They separated back in December 2007, and filed for divorce the following year.
The couple have no children together; Freeman has two sons from previous relationships, and two children (including an adopted daughter) from his first marriage to Jeanette Bradshaw.
Freeman settled a lawsuit back in November 2009 involving a 2008 car accident with a woman named Damaris Meyer; Meyer claimed she was unfairly branded as "the other woman" following the crash and "accused of having caused the breakup of Mr. Freeman's marriage."
