I'm guessing that over the course of the next few weeks there were going to be some revelations about the woman who was traveling with Morgan Freeman when he was involved in that car accident over the weekend. Her name is Demaris Meyer and she was described in the accident reports as a friend of Morgan.
Well, I'm guessing she is more than a friend because Morgan's attorney told the world that Morgan and his wife of 24 years were getting a divorce, and that they have been separated since Christmas of last year.
The only reason I can think of to detract from all the public love for Morgan right now is that something about his relationship with the woman is going to come to light and it is going to seem a whole lot more palatable to the world if the world knows that Morgan is separated and on his way to divorce. I know that Morgan and the woman were on the way to his house when the accident occurred. Since it happened at 11:30pm on a Sunday night I think we can all guess they weren't going to go online and play Scrabulous together or anything.
I think people were more concerned about his health and didn't really care about asking questions about who Demaris was and why she was with him and where was his wife. Now that we all know Morgan is going to be ok, the questions would have probably started shifting. Who know, maybe the scandal will be good enough to make the cover of The Enquirer or Star.
The fact that Demaris and Morgan's wife were or are best friends might contribute something to that scandal.
