New Grandmother Nicole Murphy Steps Out With Son Miles Mitchell Murphy Following Antoine Fuqua Cheating Scandal
Nicole Murphy grabbed dinner with son Miles Mitchell Murphy, his girlfriend Carly Olivia Fink and some pals at Ysabel restaurant in Hollywood on Sunday, August 9. The model became a grandmother for the first time on July 2 when Miles and Carly welcomed daughter Evie Isla.
Nicole, 51, avoided the limelight after her cheating scandal with Lela Rochon's husband Antoine Fuqua made headlines in July. She began posting on social media again in mid-August and shared a photo of her new granddaughter on August 31. "How cute are you? Get ready for some G ma kisses," she captioned the adorable snapshot.
The former Hollywood Exes star's outing comes just one week after Lela, 55, returned to Instagram following an extended hiatus. The Waiting To Exhale star posted a photo of herself wearing her wedding in Europe, leading fans to believe that she was working on her marriage with the director. "God is good," she captioned the image.
Nicole received a lot of backlash after she was photographed kissing Antoine, 53, on vacation in Italy. LisaRaye McCoy accused her of being a husband stealer and insinuated that she went after her own husband Michael Misick during the time the two were married. "Gurl @nikimurphy you went after @iamlelarochon husband too? ... SMH so wrong ... again!" she wrote on Instagram when the photographs were released.
Eddie Murphy's ex initially tried to deny any wrongdoing and insisted the smooch was just a "friendly hello" between "family friends." She backtracked days later and issued an apology to Lela and her family.
"Without going into the entire situation, I want to apologize to my family, and to Antoine's wife Lela Rochon and to the Fuqua family for what transpired. It was not my intention to be in this situation. I do not condone women kissing or interacting in anyway inappropriately with a married man. I too was once married and I would never intentionally undermine another woman, despite what has been written," she said in a carefully worded statement.
The mother-of-five has been slowly returning to public life since the scandal. She enjoyed a day at the Malibu Chili Cookoff on Saturday, August 31 with pals.
