Is 73-year-old Morgan Freeman dating his 27-year-old step-granddaughter, while still married to second wife Myrna Colley-Lee? The net is all abuzz about the age gap relationship, but Freeman's publicist has been quoted as saying the rumor is "complete garbage".
Yet the National Enquirer has run a story stating E'Dena Hines, who Freeman has raised with Colley-Lee since the end of his first [marriage](http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://marriage.about.com/), has been having a decade-long affair with Freeman. How did the Enquirer get this information? Supposedly, [Freeman's divorce](http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://gossip.about.com/b/2008/08/06/morgan-freeman-and-myrna-colley-lee-are-getting-divorced.htm) documents mention the relationship with Hines as a reason for the breakup.
I can't find any reliable sources for the alleged relationship and whether or not Morgan Freeman dating his step-daughter is bogus or not, but this isn't the first time an age gap dating relationship has made headlines; in 1997 Woody Allen (then 55) married Soon-Yi Previn (then 22), the young woman he'd raised as his own with former live-in lover Mia Farrow. Reports stated Previn was Allen's step-daughter, however Farrow and Allen never married and thus was never Previn's legal guardian. Photos show the couple still together in 2009 attending film festivals together, hand in hand.
What do you feel about age gap relationship, also known as [May December romances](http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://dating.about.com/od/glossarywordsm/g/MayDecember.htm)? Does age mean anything to you when dating, or is it just a social construct? How about if you were in a parental-type relationship at one point, and then later dated them - does that change how you feel?
