Whew chile…the mess!
Actress Lela Rochon deactivated her Instagram page on Monday after photos of her husband Antoine Fuqua and Nicole Murphy kissing in Italy surfaced online.
Lela and famed director (Training Day, The Equalizer) have been married for over 20 years (1999) and they share two beautiful children together.
So, people had A LOT of questions when the photos hit the net!
Nicole Murphy did speak with B. Scott and said the kiss was nothing more than a friendly hello.
Antoine and I are just family friends. I ran into him in Italy and we exchanged a friendly hello and that was it.
Well, sis – how many times did you say hello?!
The photos show them kissing…ahem…”saying hello” on more than one occasion. Antoine and Nicole look like they were on a whole
Nicole and Antoine are no strangers to snapping pics together.
The duo was photographed together in May when she attended the premiere of his documentary, What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali.
Lela Rochon wasn’t pictured at the event. It’s unclear if she was even there.
Matter of fact, the last time she acknowledged Antoine as her husband on social media was in February.
But, let’s be clear…Antoine Fuqua ain’t new to this Hot Boy life!
The famed director has allegedly fathered three children outside of his marriage to Lela.
Antoine fathered a son with a woman named Ruth Jimenez and filed court documents in August 2010 in an attempt to lower his $10,000/mo child support payment because he couldn’t afford it.
See the documents here.
Two years later, he allegedly fathered a baby girl.
A British model/actress he was having an affair with spilled the beans when the alleged baby’s mother popped up his home in Venice Beach, starting wilding out and threatening to tell Lela about her baby.
Oh, and he allegedly got a bartender in Toronto pregnant while he was there filming Training Day.
I’m still not done…
The plot thickened
But, am I the only one who remembers the rumors about LisaRaye having an affair with former NBA star Gary Payton while he was still married to Monique James? ?
Let’s refrain from throwing stones from glass houses…
At the end of the day, I feel bad for Lela Rochon.
Regardless of whether or not she and Antoine Fuqua are still married, she has been through so much!
Sis was hurt and/or embarrassed enough to flee social media with the quickness.
Now, take a moment to digest all of this and let me know your thoughts?
