Morgan Freeman was involved sexually with his late step-granddaughter, says killer boyfriend
A shocking claim has come in the path of Morgan Freeman, and it's related to his late step-granddaughter. According to the lawyers representing the man accused of murdering Freeman's step-granddaughter, she had a sexual relationship with the actor, the New York Post reported.
The recent allegations came up in a Manhattan courtroom, where the accused Lamar Davenport is on trial for the death of E'Dena Hines in 2015.
“E’Dena Hines disclosed to Lamar Davenport and others that her grandfather engaged in a sexually inappropriate relationship with her,” Davenport’s lawyer, Beth Unger, claimed in court Friday.
According to Davenport's therapist, he admitted to often arguing with Hines about infidelity, where they each accused the other of being unfaithful in the relationship. “Lamar admitted to me that they had a violent relationship,” said Dr. Jeremy Colley. “[Their] disagreements could be emotionally intense.”
However, this is not the first time that speculation that Freeman was involved with his step-granddaughter sexuallyis doing the rounds in media circles.
Back in 2012, there were speculations that the two were on the verge of getting married. But unsurprisingly both Freeman and Hines denied the engagement and claims that they were in a relationship.
“The recent reports of any pending marriage or romantic relationship of me to anyone are defamatory fabrications from the tabloid media designed to sell papers,” Morgan said in a statement given to TMZ. “What is even more alarming is that these fabrications are now being picked up by the legitimate press as well,” he continued.
Hines' entire family is still in mourning over the loss, given the gruesome manner in which she was found after her alleged murder. She was stabbed no less than 25 times, with her body left in the street, right outside her house. As per the allegations, Davenport had murdered her in a drunken rage and left her on the streets to die.
