Morgan Freeman's lawyer says the actor and his wife of 24 years are getting a divorce.
Freeman's lawyer, Bill Luckett, told the Memphis Commercial-Appeal newspaper that the divorce action is impending. Freeman's wife is Myrna Colley-Lee.
The lawyer declined to provide details. There was no answer early today at phone numbers for Luckett or for Freeman's publicist.
The 71-year-old actor is recovering in a Memphis hospital after a car crash in neighboring Mississippi on Sunday left him with a broken arm, broken elbow and shoulder damage.
