Morgan Freeman is officially divorced from wife of 26 years




Morgan Freeman is now a free man, with his divorce from Myrna Colley-Lee now finalized, the AP reports. See what we did there? Free man? Awesome, huh? Eh.

A Mississippi judge entered the divorce decree on Sept. 15, Morgan's attorney, William R. Wright, said Friday: "It was done without a trial. Everybody is glad it's over."

The couple separated in December 2007 and filed for divorce in July 2008 after being married for 26 years. Freeman's separation was announced after a car accident in 2008 in which he was driving with a woman named Demaris Meyer and ran off a rural highway. Meyer claimed Freeman had been drinking, but no charges were filed. Our advice to him this time around: Call a cab.
