Morgan Freeman is getting a divorce.
The 'Million Dollar Baby' actor, who was involved in a serious car accident last weekend, is involved in divorce proceedings after splitting with his wife Myrna Colley-Lee last December.
Morgan's business partner Bill Luckett said yesterday (06.08.08): "They are involved in a divorce action. For legal and practical purposes, they have been separated since December of 2007."
Morgan and costumer Myrna, who have been married for 24 years, have two children together.
The 71-year-old Oscar winner also has two other children from previous relationships.
The couple met when Morgan was working in an off-Broadway theatre production in 1976 and they married in 1984.
Meanwhile, Morgan is said to be in a stable condition in a Memphis hospital following his car crash on Sunday (03.08.08). 'The Dark Knight' actor suffered a broken arm and elbow as well as severed nerves after his car overturned twice into a ditch in rural Mississippi.
Morgan's passenger Demaris Meyer, 48, escaped with minor injuries, but the star was said to be in a critical condition when admitted to hospital.
Morgan is now said to be making a good recovery, after doctors operated to reattach his nerves. His agent has confirmed he is walking again and Bill Luckett added that he was "in good health".
