See Who Freeman’s Blocking From Getting $$ Left To Murdered Granddaughter
Actor, Morgan Freeman has just gone to court over and issue pertaining to his beloved granddaughter, E’Dena Hines, who was murdered by her boyfriend in August of this year (2015). E’Dena was his step-granddaughter, but Freeman has actually been the only father figure to her, throughout her entire life and he refers to her simply his granddaughter, because he loved her like she was his own flesh and blood.
Freeman had to go to court the other day to ask a judge to block E’Dena’s biological father from inheriting the $791,000 Morgan had given E’Dena and the trust fund he had set up in her name. E’Dena had no will, so naturally her estate is to be split equally between both of her parents. The only problem is that yes, E’Dena’s mother, Deena Adair, whom is the child of Freeman’s first wife is in fact her loving parent, but Morgan Freeman is the man who basically was E’Dena’s ‘father.’
You see, E’Dena’s biological father, Edward Lee Hines, was basically like a sperm donor, because Freeman said that after Edward and her Mom divorced when she was three years old, E’Dena had only met her Dad once or twice throughout the rest of her life, and that it was instead he (Freeman) who was always there and helped to raise her, even though he and her grandmother, Jeanette Adair Bradshaw, divorced in 1979. Their family remained extremely close throughout it all and Freeman said he acted as a surrogate father to E’Dena. Here’s what Morgan told the courts according to NY Post:
“In fact, from the time that E’Dena was approximately three and a half years old and until the Thanksgiving before her death, E’Dena met with Edward Lee Hines only one or two times,” Freeman’s statement said.
“At no point during that time period were any efforts made by Edward Lee Hines to resume a relationship with E’Dena. At no time did he pay for expenses related to food, clothing or education.”
“Throughout E’Dena’s entire lifetime, my daughter Deena Adair and I were the primary sources of support for E’Dena financially, emotionally, mentally and physically.”
If Morgan Freeman’s allegations are true, we truly hope that E’Dena Hines’ biological father doesn’t get not one hot penny from E’Dena’s estate. He does not deserve it and should go somewhere and focus on how to man up to his responsibilities so that he never makes a horrible decision, like the one he made to walk away from his daughter, ever again.
E’Dena Hines’ murderer/boyfriend, Lamar Davenport, who had a history of drug abuse and several run-ins with the law, will appear in court on court on December 15 for his murder charges.
May E’Dena continue to rest in peace and may her family eventually find peace and strength in the midst of their grieving.
