Nicole Murphy, Eddie Murphy’s ex-wife has gotten herself into some trouble this week. She was photographed kissing director Antoine Fuqua, who is married to actress Lela Rochon (The Waynes Brother, Robin from Waiting to Exhale, Harlem Nights, Boomerang), and has been since 1999.
Initially Nicole said they were just family friends exchanging a “friendly hello,” but after receiving so much backlash, Nicole has come out to apologize. Apparently, she thought the relationship was over.
“Without going into the entire situation, I want to apologize to my family, and to Lela and the Fuqua family for what transpired. “t was not my intention to be in this situation. I do not condone women kissing or interacting in anyway inappropriately with a married man. I too was once married and I would never intentionally undermine another woman, despite what has been written.”
Nicole thought the two were divorced. Why she thought that is still in question. Did Antoine tell her he was single?
The last time Antoine and Lela were photographed together in public was in February. The two share two teen children.
Lisa Ray spoke out of the situation being that Nicole Murphy messed with her husband during her former marriage.
