Turns out Toni Braxton may no longer be singing another sad love song. Eddie Murphy and Toni Braxton are said to be ‘dating’ according to some recent reports.
The two have a small tribe of kids between them (10 total) but they are “making it work”. Maybe opposites do attract. Let’s just hope that Eddie is able to keep it together. After his 13 year marriage to model Nicole Murphy, which ended in 2006, and public baby mama drama with former Spice Girl, Mel B, we began to wonder about his ability to have another relationship. Toni’s quest for love has also been a major plot point on The Braxton’s TV series. After her own 8 year marriage to music exec Keri Lewis ended in 2009, Toni has been on a quest to find love again.
The two stars were romantically linked after Murphy was spotted backstage one of Braxton’s Los Angeles concerts recently. A source reported that the couple were “seeing each other and very into it”.
However, in an interview with Access Hollywood Thursday night, Murphy responded, “Toni and I are just friends. I went to her show, and we’re friends and she’s a very, very sweet girl, but we’re just friends,” when asked about the dating rumors.
Yeah, we’ve heard that one before.
Although this seems like a strange pairing, if the rumors are indeed true, we can only wish them the best.
