Morgan Freeman’s August car crash is coming back to haunt him. His female passenger Demaris Meyer is suing him for negligence and setting the record straight that she was not his mistress. The AP reports:
“I have been labeled as the other woman and have been accused of having caused the breakup of Mr. Freeman’s marriage,” Meyer said. “Nothing could be further from the truth. I had hoped and prayed that Mr. Freeman or his representatives would have set the record straight and cleared my name, but they have not done so and that is why I have chosen to come forward to tell the truth about our relationship.”
Meyer is suing for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, permanent disability and property damage.
Her lawsuit claims Morgan Freeman failed to pay attention to the road and obey the posted speed limit. Of course, being drunk off his ass might have something to do with it, according to TMZ:
Demaris Meyer claims on the night of the crash, she first met up with Freeman at dinner — where she noticed “throughout the course of dinner and afterward drinks were consumed by Freeman.”
Meyer then says she left dinner and met up with Freeman and others at a friend’s home. She claims Freeman “had at least one more drink” while there. She claims Freeman then invited her to stay at his home for the night — guaranteeing her not only her own bedroom, but her “own house.” She says she agreed.
So, that’s how you score with women: Offer them their own house for the night. All this time I’ve been laying newspaper down on the floor. But for the record, I always use the full color Sunday comics. Somebody’s gotta keep romance alive.
