Former Model and Ex-Wife of Comedian Eddie Murphy, Nicole Murphy, has come out to apologize for kissing married director, Antoine Fuqua.
The two were spotted locking lips in Italy by the poolside in photos that have since gone viral on the internet.
Nicole Murphy had initially denied anything happening and according to Lovebscott.com had described their meeting as simply a ‘Friendly Hello’
“Antoine and I are just family friends,
“I ran into him in Italy and we exchanged a friendly hello and that was it.”
Well, now she has changed her tune and has apologized for the kiss with Antoine Fuqua in a vague statement where she refused to actually go into details.
“Antoine and I are friends. We ran into each other while we both were in Europe,” Nicole said
“Without going into the entire situation, I want to apologize to my family, and to Lela and the Fuqua family for what transpired.”
She continued, “It was not my intention to be in this situation. I do not condone women kissing or interacting in any way [sic] inappropriately with a married man.”
“I too was once married and I would never intentionally undermine another woman, despite what has been written,”
Both Fuqua and Murphy were in Italy for the Ischia Global Festival, where Antoine Fuqua is receiving the Director of the Year Award.
The pictures of the two looked really steamy and it’ll be difficult for Murphy to pass this off as a simple ‘friendly hello’ as if that’s what a friendly hello looks like perhaps that’s how we should all start greeting our friends
(Author’s note- Please don’t. That’s how you become a sexual harassment trend on Twitter)
Antoine Fuqua is married to actress Lela Rochon and the pair have two children together, Asia and Brando.
Lela is most popular for her role in Cult Classic, Waiting to Exhale
