The veteran actor parted ways from Myrna Colley-Lee in late 2007 and secretly filed official documents to end their union the following July (08).

Their split became public shortly after the 73 year old crashed his car and had to be cut free from the wreckage in Tennessee in August 2008.

On Wednesday (15Sep10), more than two years after the papers were filed, a judge in Jackson, Mississippi finalised their divorce - and Freeman is delighted the split is now official.

His lawyer, William R. Wright, tells the Associated Press, "It was done without a trial. Everybody is glad it's over."

Terms of the divorce are not being made public.
