Morgan Freeman was Drinking before Car Crash

Demaris Meyer, the woman who was the passenger in the car at the time Morgan Freeman crashed her car in Tennessee, has just wrapped a press conference to give the public further details about what went on.

According to Demaris’ lawsuit filed today, she noticed "throughout the course of dinner and afterward drinks were consumed by Freeman."

That means he was drinking prior to the crash, something that was not reported initially.

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.

Meyer claims at around 11:30 PM, while Freeman drove her to his home, Morgan lost control of the car and "ran off of the right side of the highway."

Meyer says she suffered a broken left wrist and right scapula, a torn labrum in her right shoulder and numerous bruises and lacerations.

During the press conference Meyer said she and Freeman were "just friends,” despite the rumors that she was his mistress.

She is now suing for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, permanent disability, and additional damages. We wonder how it was covered up at the time of the crash about Morgan drinking? That always seems to come out, no matter how big the star is!
