US Magazine reports that a source close to the couple told the magazine that comedian Eddie Murphy, 50, and singer Toni Braxton, 44, “are seeing each other and very into it.” The source also claims that the romance has been going on for about four months.

While Toni Braxton’s spokesperson deflected questions about the possible love affair by saying that the two are just friends and fans of each others’ work, the source claims that Eddie was backstage at Toni’s February 19 concert and has already met her two children from a previous relationship – in other words, things are getting serious.

Those of you who follow gossip know that Eddie Murphy has eight children from previous marriages and relationships, including one with former Spice Girl Mel B that he denied having fathered until a paternity test was performed. His last public relationship was with Tracey Edmonds (ex-wife of singer Babyface), with whom he exchanged non-legally binding vows in 2008.

Fans of Braxton Family Values know that Toni’s quest for love has been a focus on the show…can we expect her relationship with Eddie to become part of the plot as well?

Do you buy this rumor? What do you think of them as a couple?

  • Stanley

    This relationship would give both of their careers a lift. (my opinion)

  • Joan

    Well, it would definitely be good for her financially. I have a hard time believing this, though. Besides Robin Givens, I’ve never seen Eddie Murphy date a woman who would fail the paper bag test.

  • mamareese

    They are talented on screen/stage but off they seem rather shallow…not much depth. I wouldn’t want anything to do with a man that nationally denied his child. And um allegedly turned Whiteny out…….And allegedly creeped with Johnnie Gill…Suga Ray Lenard…..etc. Kudos to the couple though LOL.

  • Mimi

    I wonder if I would date a super rich man even though I had doubts about his sexuality?

    She’s with him for the money and he’s with her to deflect the gay rumors.

  • Brianna

    you’ve NEVER even met these people. how dare you say they are shallow? perhaps, the bitotch that’s gossiping about unknown people is the shallow one. look in the mirror.

  • Brianna

    I think you’d only doubt his sexuality if you’re to stupid to realize that bisexuality exists.

  • mamareese

    @ Brianna

    Excuse you…don’t come for me honey. 1st off let’s not call names we are all adults and calling someone a B you don’t want it….so sit down. 2nd take notes…I said allegedly: Represented as existing or as being as described but not so proved; supposed. But then again how could I expect someone as childish as to call a stranger a b to understand that. 3rd Perception is reality and from what I’ve seen this is my opinion which I’m fully allowed to share. You don’t like it fine, but YOU are the shallow one for resorting to such vicious words over such a pointless matter.

  • NY’s Finest

    Idk I just can’t see them together. A little off topic but Toni is so pretty, I just wish she could get her hair right. If she’s not going to get the proper weave/wig she needs to stick with the short cut.

  • mamareese

    I agree the short hair was more flattering and only she could pull that off. Plus on the show they say she’s dating her ex husband again.

  • Tonton Michel

    Well she is light enough.

  • NY’s Finest

    Lol! I was thinking the same thing.

  • OSHH

    LOL, the name calling and rude tone is SO un-necessary isn’t it.
    Next you’ll be a “hater” for stating an opinion LOL.
    Learned people believe folks that have sex with the same sex are homosexual, regardless of whether they sex the opposite sex in addition to, or not.

  • kisa

    If Toni is looking for true love and a long lasting commitment, hate to say it but it’s not with Eddie Murphy. I am sure she is aware of his resume. These women don’t have good sense sometimes. Hooking up with these guys that are known for their consistently inconsistent ways. SMH….

  • kisa

    @mamareese: you go girl! well said…

  • Mimi

    @Briana- Since I am not stupid, I do realize that bisexuality exists and I would never date anyone who isn’t hetero, I guess I don’t understand your point.

  • Alexandra

    Her and her sisters. They’ve had some really bad weaves/wigs.

  • modern lady

    If this were true, I don’t think Johnny G. would be too happy about it.

  • modern lady

    And doesn’t have a mannish face like the ex.

  • Melinda

    She’s a complete idiot.Why on God’s green earth would she get involved with this man after the way he did Mel B? I hope she doen’t intend to get pregnant by this sucka.We all know he’ll be calling Maury for a paternity test.

  • Robbie

    @Melinda True

  • Zipporah Robinson

    This has got 2 b a joke. Right??? God, I hope not. This too shall fail!!!

  • jazzyphile

    Eddie is hardly perfect, but you ladies act like this woman don’t have a lot of baggage: two bankruptcies!

  • Arie

    A lil surprised to find out that Eddie has EIGHT kids…wow!

  • Bunny

    Uh oh, STAN WARS! lol

  • sholla21

    They’re no longer dating. They both decided they’re not meant to be a couple. It was in a recent episode.

  • tami king

    Brianna is gay and someone hit a nerve! Clam down, you have a long road ahead of you.

  • Mokoey

    Tony looks better with short jet black hair, Eddie is probably fun to be around, hence getting a lot of women, he has a bad track record so I wouldn’t go there
