A family insider has revealed the real reasons behind Morgan Freeman‘s divorce with his wife of 25 years: Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman apparently maintained an affair with his 27-year-old step-granddaughter for approximately ten years.

The National Inquirer reports that Freeman was part of an extramarital relationship with E’Dena Hines, the granddaughter of Freeman’s first wife, that started when Hines was still a teenager. Freeman and his wife Myrna raised Hines since she was a child.

Myrna was aware of the relationship before, and confronted Freeman about it, with both parties agreeing to terms that Freeman will leave Hines alone. Freeman and Hines, however, persisted with the relationship.

Reports have noted that Hines was Freeman’s date to several events, including the premier of “The Dark Knight“.
