Now Nicole Murphy Says She's 'Sorry' For Kissing Married Director Antoine Fuqua, Claims She Thought He & Lela Rochon Were Divorced

​ ​ ​ ​

Sounds to us like you're a "family friend" who knows nothing about the family of your "friend."  Nicole Murphy is switching up her explanation about her make out session with the very married Antoine Fuqua.  Decide if you believe her this time inside.

The Italian smooch heard around the world just got even louder.  After Nicole Murphy and married blockbuster movie director Antoine Fuqua were spotted looking like they were in post coital bliss a few days ago in Italy, the "Hollywood Exes" star is apologizing.  Oddly, Antoine hasn't said a word.

Initially, the 51-year-old ex-wife of Eddie Murphy said THESE KISSES were nothing but her saying"Hello" to a good family friend she ran into...in a towel...in a random city in Italy...during a movie festival...and she's not an actress. 

Now, she tells TMZ she is sorry.  Nicole issued an apology to Antoine's wife of 20 years, Lela Rochon, who quickly deleted all of her social media accounts right after the pictures hit the net.  Nicole says she thought he was divorced.


... "Without going into the entire situation, I want to apologize to my family, and to Lela and the Fuqua family for what transpired."

Nicole goes on to explain, "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."

As for why Nicole kissed Fuqua, who's been married to actress Lela Rochon since 1999 ... we're told she thought the status of their relationship was ... over.

Sources tell us, Nicole was under the impression that Antoine was divorced, and that's why she engaged with him the way she did. We're told she feels terrible about this and hopes folks can forgive her for the mistake.


Hmmm.  While men can be notorious for that "Me and her ain't together anymore" line to get what they want out of a new chick, we're not totally convinced - yet - if he told Nicole this.  Or if both she and he simply did whatever they felt like doing together despite there clearly being a marriage involved.

Still, we're confused about why Nicole is the only one apologizing here.  The one who took vows - Antoine Fuqua - is oddly silent.  So Nicole is left out here flailing by herself.  That silence speaks loudly in itself.
