Earlier this week photos of Nicole Murphy and Antoine Fuqua surfaced of the two kissing — twice, while in Italy. Yes, the same Fuqua that’s been married to Lela Rochon since 1999.
Murphy, whose original statement claimed the kiss was just a “friendly hello”, is now changing her tune. In an interview with TMZ, the former Mrs. Eddie Murphy, says, “Without going into the entire situation, I want to apologize to my family, and to Lela and the Fuqua family for what transpired. It was not my intention to be in this situation. I do not condone women kissing or interacting in any way inappropriately with a married man. I too was once married and I would never intentionally undermine another woman, despite what has been written.”
According to the 51-year-old, she reportedly thought Lela and Antoine were divorced. Yeah, this is all bad. And to add insult to injury, Da Brat has confirmed that the comment LisaRaye left on the photos of the two kissing, alleging Nicole cheated with her ex-husband Michael Missick, were indeed true. Watch.
Ouch! And while Nicole is most certainly getting the brunt of the backlash, let’s not forget, Antoine is also to blame. We’ll continue to update you as the story plays out. In the meantime, here’s a look back at the Fuquas in happier times.
