Last Spring, we wrote about director Antoine Fuqua and his 20-year-marriage to actress Lela Rochon. And while this Hollywood couple isn’t known for being in the headlines, today, it’s a different story. An Italian news outlet reported that Fuqua was seen kissing Nicole Murphy, former wife of comedian Eddie Murphy.
You can see pictures of the two lip locking, here.
Initially, I thought the man kissing Murphy could be anyone. But then other, clearer images popped up on Twitter and then the verdict was clear.
Reportedly, the two were in Naples, Italy for the 2019 Ischia Global Film & Music Fest.
While Murphy is a single woman, Fuqua, as far as we know, is not. In fact, Rochon posted about her husband this past February. (Then again, February was five months ago. And a lot can happen in the time frame.)
Since then, the actress and Fuqua have deleted their Instagram pages.
While the news of a relationship between Murphy and Fuqua is new to us. Apparently, the two have been seen out and about together before now.
In the picture above, the two were seen in Los Angeles, California at the premiere for “What’s My Name Muhammad Ali.” And while they did appear chummy, we could have chalked it all up to industry people schmoozing.
Now, it seems that there is something more nefarious going on.
There is a chance Rochon and Fuqua separated and they just hadn’t made the announcement publicly. but there is also the chance that Fuqua and Murphy were engaged in some classic, sloppy adultery.
And y’all know the saying, “What’s done in the dark always comes to the light.”
What do you think is going on here?
