Myrna Colley-Lee is a costume designer and wife of actor Morgan Freeman. The NY Daily News is reporting Freeman is divorcing Colley-Lee after 24 years of marriage. You can see her biography and photos below.
Morgan was recently in a car accident while accompanied by Demaris Meyer, who is supposedly a friend of Myrna’s. Freeman is still in a Memphis hospital. No word on whether this incident had any bearing on the pending divorce.
Freeman’s business partner, attorney Bill Luckett, told “Access Hollywood” that the “Dark Knight” star and his wife, Myrna Colley-Lee, “are involved in a divorce action.”
It has also been reported that the two have actually been separated ‘for legal and practical purposes’ since December 2007.
Myrna Colley-Lee was born in 1941 in Hamlett, North Carolina, which makes her age 67. Myrna attended college in North Carolina and went on to get her M.F.A from Temple University. She has gone on to do costume work on several plays and is currently working on Till, which will run at Brown University. Alongside theatre, Myrna has worked on several television and film projects. She is also very involved in supporting the arts, serving on such boards as Charleston Arts and Revitalization Effort, Inc. and the Rock River Foundation.
Myrna married Morgan Freeman in 1984 after dating for eight years. Freeman has allegedly had a reputation for “liking the ladies” but the couple was married for 24 years.
Their marriage was the second for both and they have one child together. Myrna also has a child from a previous marriage who Morgan adopted, and he has two other children. The couple have a 126-acre ranch near Charleston, Mississippi.
Hopefully, Morgan makes a full recovery and the two can somehow work it out. They’ve been together for so long!
