Morgan Freeman’s Messy Family Fight

Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman is taking legal steps to prevent the biological father of his slain step-granddaughter from inheriting the $800,000 Manhattan apartment he purchased for her!

The legal filing raises eyebrows since The National ENQUIRER exclusively reported in 2009 that he was having an affair with the aspiring actress, E’Dena Hines, 33.

E’Dena was brutally stabbed on Aug. 16 by her crazed boyfriend Lamar Davenport, 30.

E’Dena didn’t leave a will, which left her mom and deadbeat dad, Edward Lee Hines, in line for her inheritance.
