Nicole Murphy is backpedaling on her initial statement after she was spotted kissing married director, Antoine Fuqua. Eddie Murphy’s ex-wife was photographed in Italy kissing Lela Rochon’s husband, not once but twice. She first gave a ridiculous statement that they were just family friends saying hello but after public backlash, she has now issued another statement.

She tells TMZ:
“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 anyway inappropriately with a married man. I too was once married and I would never intentionally undermine another woman, despite what has been written.”
Unnamed sources say Nicole was under the impression that Antoine was divorced, and that’s why she engaged with him the way she did. She said to feel terrible about this and hopes people can forgive her for the mistake.
Not sure if her story is true but one would think she would have checked if he is divorced since by her own admission they travel in the same circle.
Lela and Antoine have been married 20 years and share two children together.
This is not the first alleged cheating incident Nicole has been caught up in. Remember when Michael Strahan put a tracking device in her car?
