Wow! Motto of the year: It doesn't pay to cheat!
Morgan Freeman's divorce to his wife Myrna was finalized in September, but The National Enquirer has just released a slew of explosive details about the settlement that we just couldn't believe.
After allegedly carrying on affairs with both a former schoolteacher and his his step-granddaughter, E'Dena Hines, Morgan was ordered to pay his ex-wife the whooping sum of $400 million in cash and real estate!
Damn! That's a lot of cheddar!
The payout ranks as the fifth-largest divorce settlement in history and includes Myrna getting a $7 million house in the British Virgin Islands, a home in Los Angeles and an apartment beside New York's Central Park, the latter of which she is reportedly bequeathing to E'Dena.
Really? That sounds rather fishy to us, but maybe she'll explain in her book.
Oh yes, there will be a book! According to sources, Morgan didn't sign a gag order on his ex, so she is free to talk about their relationship as much as she wants. Insiders say that she is looking into the book route to spill all the details on Morgan's many "infidelities."
Let this be a lesson to the rest of you cheaters! Nothing ever stays a secret for long, especially in Hollywood!
