Morgan Freeman Driving to Splitsville

Just a few days after flipping his car on a rural Mississippi highway with a female friend in the car, Morgan Freeman is headed for divorce.

Freeman's lawyer and business partner tells a Memphis paper that Freeman and his wife of 24 years are divorcing. Several sources have indicated to TMZ that the marriage between the two has been over for some time.

Multiple calls to Freeman's rep were not returned.

Freeman and friend Demaris Meyer were injured when the car they were in ran off the road Sunday night.
