Freeman, who is still hospitalized for the epic car crash he was in, is now seeking divorce from his wife of 24 years. I wonder if this has anything to do with Demaris Meyer, the mystery girl that was riding shotgun in Freeman’s car at the time of the accident.
A spokesman for Freeman – who is in hospital recovering from a broken arm, a broken elbow and minor shoulder damage – told Access Hollywood he is seeking a divorce from his wife, costumer Myrna Colley-Lee.
â€œ(They) are involved in a divorce action,â€ the actor’s Mississippi-based attorney and business partner Bill Luckett said.
“And for legal and practical purposes, (Freeman and Colley-Lee) have been separated since December of 2007.”
The mystery woman in Freeman’s car at the time it rolled has been identified as Demaris Meyer, a friend of Freeman’s.
The jaws of life were required to cut both passengers from the wreckage when the car swerved off the road and rolled end-over-end on Sunday night, on a highway near a home Freeman has in Charleston, Mississippi.
This is kind of getting messed up. First the poor guy is in some horrific car crash, and then he makes what we can only assume is a slit second decision and drops this bomb on his wife. Granted, they were separated since last December, but it’s not too much of a coincidence the 2 events happened one after another. I’m kinda confused about it, so I’ll let Dr. Seuss do my talking for me…
