Morgan Freeman’s murdered step-granddaughter ‘told boyfriend she’d had a secret sexual relationship

MORGAN Freeman was secretly sleeping with his step-granddaughter, lawyers defending her alleged killer have claimed.

Before she was murdered E’Dena Hines told her boyfriend the actor had been secretly sleeping with her, according to Lamar Davenport’s attorneys.

A court has been told that Morgan Freeman had a sexual relationship with his step-granddaughter E'Dena Hines before she was murdered

They have now introduced text messages into evidence where the victim mentioned “grandpa feelings”.

Morgan Freeman's granddaughter E'Dena Hines told to 'turn the light off' by angry boyfriend, Lamar Davenport, hours before he stabbed her to death

Ms Hines was murdered on August 16, 2015, outside her apartment building in Washington Heights, New York City.

Around six weeks before, on July 3 2015, she texted Davenport saying she was having difficulties with an older man.

She wrote: “I don’t ask him for advice he was calling to ask me . . . I blocked him for myself not for you because men who equal grandpa feelings don’t need to be in my life at all.”

The couple were discussing their relationship in the exchange and whether or not to take a break at the time when her “grandpa” came up.

Davenport at one point messaged her saying: “When it comes to . . . your grandfather, there’s a submissive love that will always be there.”

The revelations come after Davenport’s lawyer, Beth Unger, claimed in court Friday that Ms Hines “disclosed to Lamar Davenport and others that her grandfather engaged in a sexually inappropriate relationship with her”.

The defence team didn’t go into further detail, but provided testimony from a therapist who claimed that Davenport admitted to often arguing with Hines about infidelity.

Dr Jeremy Colley said: “Lamar admitted to me that they had a violent relationship.

“[Their] disagreements could be emotionally intense.”

Rumors about Freeman’s alleged affair with Hines have swirled since 2009, which is when it was first reported by The National Enquirer.

Gossip sites later claimed that the relationship was serious — and that the two were even planning on tying the knot.

While they aren’t related by blood, Freeman has known Hines since she was a small child and has been a part of her life for years.

The 80-year-old adopted her biological mother, Deena Adair, during his first marriage to Jeanette Adair-Bradshaw and then helped raise Hines with his second wife, Myrna Colley-Lee. Adair was Jeanette’s daughter.

Freeman and Hines have both said in the past that the claims about them sleeping together were completely false.

Freeman said in a 2012 statement: “The recent reports of any pending marriage or romantic relationship of me to anyone are defamatory fabrications from the tabloid media designed to sell papers.”

In a separate statement, Hines wrote: “These stories about me and my grandfather are not only untrue, they are also hurtful to me and my family.”

Davenport is charged with second-degree murder and is facing a maximum of 25 years to life in prison, if convicted. His lawyers are pursuing an insanity defence.

They claim that he wouldn’t have taken Hines’ life if it weren’t for the drugs he was on, one of them being PCP.
