It seems as if Morgan Freeman is having a run of bad luck lately. Days after the Academy Award-winning actor was involved a potentially life threatening car accident, his business partner announced that Freeman and his wife Myrna Colley-Lee are calling it quits after 24 years of marriage.
The couples' attorney Bill Luckett confirms the rumors, stating that the pair “are involved in a divorce action.” He adds “for legal and practical purposes, [Freeman and Colley-Lee] have been separated since December of 2007."
Freeman, 71 has four children - two from previous relationships and two with Colley-Lee. The two met in 1976 while they were both working on Broadway.
As previously reported by Gossip Girls, Freeman is recovering in a Memphis hospital following his car accident on Sunday. His rep said the actor is "doing well" after doctors reconnected nerves and repaired damage to his left arm and hand on Monday. He is expected to be released in a few days.
