The celebs came out last night for the 15th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards at the Hollywood Palladium, in Hollywood, CA. The fabulous Zoe Saldana was there.
Rising star Gabourey Sidibe walked the red carpet.
Pregnant Paula Patton was a glowing vision in red.
Morgan Freeman and his date was there. She has been seen a lot with him lately, must be his new woman. Read more
have reached a settlement. The two were embroiled in a court case after the car they were both in last year was involved in an accident.
Demaris sued Morgan who was driving but claimed the Demaris was partly to blame for the crash. I’ll leave it to your imagination as to what they were doing together that could have caused the crash.
Terms of the settlement has not been released. His lawyer would only say, “We’re all glad it’s over with.”
There is a story burning up the internet that I’m sure many of you have heard, that Morgan Freeman has been having an affair with his step-grandaughter, E’Dena Hines, for years. Also, the story claims the 72-year-old actor plans to marry the 27 year old, that he helped raise, once his divorce is final.
The story comes from the National Enquirer so I personally doubt it is true. Not to mention every time I think about it, I throw up in my throat. Ugh.
Anyway, Morgan’s publicist says the story is not true. He calls it “complete garbage.”
I really hope it is.
A lawyer for Morgan Freeman says he is not totally to blame for the accident he was involved in last August. The lawyer claims the woman who was with him was partly to blame for the accident but he doesn’t say how.
Demaris Meyer is suing Morgan claiming Morgan was negligent. Morgan responded Friday in a four-page court document denying most of the allegations.
Morgan is going to have to tell the court how the woman is partly to blame. What were the two doing in the car that could have caused an accident? I can only think of a couple things. Care to guess?
Both were seriously injured in the crash.
Demaris sued Morgan in February for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, permanent disability and property damage.
Meyer has denied reports she’s romantically linked to Freeman.
Guess that’s her story and she’s sticking to it.
