Morgan Freeman…crying da blues…in divorce court

No…no…no…don’t get it wrong.  Don’t think I sit around with my head deep in the gossip sheets because ‘no that is not me.’ 

I really am not into that whole gossip thang.  But I do have a friend who every now and then calls me to share these little tidbits…and sometimes I just pass them on to you.  So, here goes…

There is this saying about a woman scorned…which I guess Morgan Freeman found out about the hurt way.

The following morning after driving into a ditch or hitting a tree down there morgan-freeman-divorcein Mississippi with a supposed old white woman right beside (who reports say was a friend of his wife), though some reports say ‘with his new younger girlfriend’…Morgan Freeman’s wife, Myrna Colley-Lee, of 24 years did wait to hit him with divorce papers.  

Before Freeman doctors had completed their morning runs or before Freeman had begun unwrapping his bandages….or before the Tylenol had a chance to wear off…BAM! 

He was served the divorce papers…right in the hospital as soon as reports starting surfacing about the accident…that very morning.  Broken ribs and swollen knee…leg lifted in the air or not…recessitate or not…Morgan’s wife did not hesitate to lower the hammer on  him with the papers.

And little wonder as the other woman was white, older, and she apparently

 had money…and at the time was said to have been a friend of Freeman’s wife. In a small Morgan Freeman And His Wife Are Splitting Because Of New Womantown…and Mississippi is loaded with them…it is hard to believe that Freeman’s wife hadn’t heard the rumors.  Maybe, she even knew it in the back of her mind…and might have refused to accepted it…until…  Well,  it finally hit her right in face…when old Morgan hit that tree. 

But when Freeman hit that tree…or rolled over into that back road ditch…it was all that they wrote for him as far as his wife was concerned…the movie script was completed.  He was on his way to divorce court.  And she couldn’t get him there quick enough.   That is what you call…a woman who had had more than enough.

Freeman’s wife is said to receive as much as over $40 million…some reports say over $80 million of Freeman’s fun money.  Had Freeman probably realized that his little night out on the town with his girlfriend was going to cost him so big…he may have…just might have…would have maybe thought twice about who he was playing with. 

However, I could see where the money probably hurts him worst than the injuries from the car accident…and that would really be sad.  Because it should be the fact that he has probably lost the best thing he will ever have…his wife of some 27 years.

That being said evidently his wife, Myrna was and is no joke.   When she made up her mind…it was made up…and she wasn’t waiting around for any meetings or mediation on the matter…not even for Morgan to heal from his injuries. 

Besides the money…more than that…he ended up loosing a beautiful woman.  In the end it is sad really…because I am sure she would have really perferred a loving, caring and faithful husband over the money…which when you think about it…she had already had the money….it came with being his wife.    Now, she gets a sizeable chunk of it…in her name only…without him.

Morgan whose net worth is reported to exceeds $80 million and up to a possible $170 millions based upon her now ex-husband’s investments.  In the deal his wife is expected to get…$7 million home the couple shared in the Virgin Islands…$5 million home in Alabama…and the $10 million Manhattan apartment.   The couple’s Los Angeles home and their Mississippi home Morgan is expected to keep.

Though the couple were reportedly already separated prior to the car accident…insult undoubtedly had been added to injury.  And it all became too much for his wife to finally bare.

Morgan, 71, is an Academy Award winner for his role in “Million Dollar Baby”…and everybody body remembers him as the driver in the movie “Driving Miss Daisy.”

It is amazing to me how people simply seem time and time again overlook what they already have.  That they already have the best thing in the world for them…and it is that person who struggled with them when the times were rough…and when they had nothing.

And to keep this from sounding more and more like a gossip colum…let me move on to this…

If you’re planning on being in DC for the Barack Obama’s Presidential inauguration come January 20th.  Maybe you should think about it again.   If you haven’t already booked a hotel or made other arrangements just yet it might already be way too late.  Because there is nothing available from Pennsylvania straight to the far parts of Virgina….uhm, say as far down as Virginia Beach...everything is booked. 

 And people are renting out their houses and apartments for as much as between $3,000 to $5,000.   Most bus companies have been booked out too…with lots of churches having already locked in their riders.  I wish I had thought about booking a couple of buses to sell out.  I know I would have had no problem.

The turnout to see Barack Obama get sworn in as the 44th President of United States of America is going to be sooooo big…it will probably beat anything that DC has every seen


including the March on Washington back in the 60’s when Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. gave his “I have a dream” speech.    They are expecting millions of people to make the trip.

I heard yesterday that the singer Odetta 73144_odetta1passed.  She was scheduled to perform during Obama’s inauguralap-us-singer-odetta-03dec08-1901.  A much younger Odetta had  also sung at the 1960’s march on Washington where Dr. King had addressed the crowd that had assembled.  She passed in New York at age 77 of heart diease

Well, have a good day…and.  Don’t know how I did on either exams but I am glad that their are down and now on to all the papers that I have do.  But at least I have been getting some sleep.

…pass it on…’

God bless…and thanks for reading ©2008

    quick divorce…

    This is rich. First, they claim that taking marriage away from gay people“ preserves” it, which, as I made clear above, it does not. Then, they have the nerve to claim that Prop 8 is“ not an attack on the gay lifestyle.” If they had no problems…

    social emotional development…

    When filing for an uncontested divorce it is not required that you have a lawyer. An uncontested divorce is simply a form you file. If both you and your spouse agree that a divorce is the best option, and can agree on the terms of the uncontested divor…

    It’s very sad to know it. But divorce is always a nasty, according to me. You lose a person and the feelings. 😦

      Thanks for the comment…and you are right divorce is a sad thing. It is highly unfortunate that people get married and either 1 or both of them do not take their vows as a covenant between each other.
