‘Without going into the entire situation, I want to apologize to my family, and to Lela and the Fuqua family for what transpired,’ she said.

The publication continued to report that the ex-wife of Eddie Murphy believed Antoine and Lela’s 20-year relationship was over.

LisaRaye, who is the sister of rapper Da Brat, insinuated that she knows of several similar situations with Nicole and married men but declined to name names. 

Nicole has been single since her five-year engagement to Michael Strahan came to an end in 2014 but was rumored to be dating Drake and Nick Cannon in recent years.

The Hollywood Unlocked claims Murphy met Antoine at the July 2018 premiere for Equalizer 2 – which he attended with his wife – and has since kept in touch with the skincare guru.   

She divorced comedian Eddie Murphy in 2006 and shares five children with him; daughters Bria, 29, Shayne, 24, Zola, 19, and Bella, 17, as well as a 26-year-old son, Miles.   

Murphy first started modelling at the age of 13, signing with Ford Models after winning an international modelling contest.

She met Eddie in 1988 at the NAACP Image Awards, and they lived together for two years before getting married in 1993.

And amid all the drama, Nicole took to social media on Monday to share a lovely clothed post for her 918K followers. 

‘Every journey begins with just one single step….’ she captioned the cryptic image.
