“It was a frozen in time thing. Trust me, I wish it didn’t happen…it was a moment where I should’ve thought more through the situation. Made better judgments. It’s something I apologized for,” she said.

“There was a statement that was released, I didn’t put out that statement. I was out there for business, there was familiar faces out there, it happened. I was at the pool, we were on a different timezone, I had a hard time staying awake, I was drinking an espresso.”

“It was a moment that should not have happened. I’m a human being, it was a mistake. Women, this could happen to you, do your research.”

Model Nicole Murphy Apologizes After Kissing Married Director Antoine Fuqua (New Statement)

Model Nicole Murphy, who was once married to Eddie Murphy, is now apologizing after being photographed packing on the PDA with married director Antoine Fuqua.

“Without going into the entire situation, I want to apologize to my family, and to Lela and the Fuqua family for what transpired,” Nicole said in a statement to TMZ.

She continued, “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.”

This is actually the second statement Nicole Murphy made after she was seen kissing Antoine Fuqua. The first statement had Nicole explaining that she was just greeting Antoine as a family friend.

If you don’t know, Antoine is married to Waiting to Exhale actress Lela Rochon. It appears as if Lela has deleted her social media in the wake of these photos.
