Nicole Murphy says sorry for kissing Antoine Fuqua, a father of two. Reveals that she was unaware that he was married!
Nicole caught on the scene
On Saturday, Nicole, 51 was photographed kissing Fuqua, 53 by a hotel pool in Italy.
Fuqua has been married to actress Lela Rochon for 20 years and the pair shares two children, daughter Asia, 16, and son Brando, 15. Furthermore, he also has a son, Zachary, from his previous marriage. Murphy said,
“Antoine and I friends. We ran into each other while we both were in Europe,”
“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.”
Nicole and Fuqua in Italy
Fuqua was in Italy for the Ischia Global Festival where he received the director of the year award. After spending a day getting buried under an avalanche of criticism on social media, Murphy is now showing much more concern for her behavior.
They were seen with coffee in each hand with Fuqua wearing a navy towel around his waist and Murphy wearing a bikini and a white sheer robe.
Sources told that Fuqua and his wife were enjoying their son’s basketball game a few weeks ago where they both looked like a happily married couple.
Murphy was also previously married to Eddie Murphy from 1993 to 2006 and the couple shared five children son Miles, 26, and daughters Bria, 19; Shayne, 24; Zola, 19; and Bella, 17.
She had dated Micheal Strahan from 2009 to 2014. Also, she stated,
“I too was once married and I would never intentionally undermine another woman, despite what has been written”
