Actor/Comedian Eddie Murphy hit the Laker’s game solo the other night and apparently he wants to make a point.
As you know, the net was buzzing last week aboutMurphy and Toni Braxton’s budding romance but Eddie’s decided not to play that game and has put an end to the speculation.
Details below…According to The NYPost, Murphy says he’s still single and he stresses that he and Toni are ‘just friends’.
Eddie Murphy has denied reports that he is dating “Another Sad Love Song” singer Toni Braxton.
When asked if he had a new paramour, Murphy told “Access Hollywood” in an interview last night, “I don?t even know who the new love is. I know I?m single and I’m just up at the house, playing the guitar and being a single dad.”
When asked specifically about reports that he and Braxton were “getting very serious,” Murphy said the rumors aren’t true.
“Toni and I are just friends,” Murphy claimed. “I went to her show, and we?re friends and she?s a very, very sweet girl, but we?re just friends.”
Is it me or did he say ‘friends’ an awful lot in that statement. Did Murphy Want a ‘Fling” while Braxton was seeking a ‘Soulmate”?
While it’s never a good thing for the man you’ve been canoodling with to deny you’re his boo, fortunately for Toni, it bought her a wee bit of publicity.
At least Johnny Gil can sleep easier now…
