Morgan Freeman is divorcing his wife of 24 years, according to a new report.

Freeman's business partner, attorney Bill Luckett, told "Access Hollywood" that the "Dark Knight" star and his wife, Myrna Colley-Lee, "are involved in a divorce action."

The surprising news comes just days after the Academy Award-winner broke his arm and elbow in a serious car accident.

His passenger, Demaris Meyer, 48, is reportedly a friend of Freeman's wife. It's unclear why the two were together on Monday.

Freeman has been released from the Memphis, Tenn., hospital where he was being treated.

The actor, 71, married his wife in 1984 after eight years of dating. He has four children from two previous relationships.

Freeman's publicist had no comment on Wednesday.

The actor rose to fame with supporting roles in "Driving Miss Daisy" and "Glory," and later won an Oscar in 2005 for "Million Dollar Baby."
