A source tells US Weekly, “[they] are seeing each other and very into it.”
Now Toni, would you say that Eddie Murphy has successfully unbroken your heart? Or is this just another sad love song? Did you see what I did there…with the song titles?
Anyways, Toni has been separated from ex-husband Keri Lewis since 2009. Eddie was first married to Nicole Mitchell, he’s spice girl Melanie Brown’s baby daddy, he was married again to Tracey Edmonds and also rumored to have been linked to the late Whitney Houston in the late 1980s. Hey, you can’t say he’s not experienced.
Murphy was spotted backstage at Braxton’s LA concert on February 19 but her rep insists, “Toni and Eddie are just friends and have been fans of each other’s work for a long time.”
Why do reps even comment anymore? We all know that “just friends” is code for “basically married, considering adopting a dog together.”
However, the source says that “their kids have met and everything. It’s getting very serious.” Speaking of kids, Eddie’s got 8 of them.
This is great news for Braxton, whose quest for love has been the main subject of her families reality show, Braxton Family Values.
