Eddie Murphy must be a ladies man. The comedian has been seen with numerous women since his divorce from ex wife and now reality star Nicole Murphy. However, Nicole Murphy isn’t the comedian’s only high profile break up. After months of dating Spice Girl Mel B., the couple seemed to break up on pretty bad terms. The singer eventually learned she was pregnant, however, Eddie refused to claim the baby for quite some time. After taking a paternity test, it was confirmed that Eddie was indeed the biological father of her daughter. Despite this, Mel B. claims Eddie has not been involved in her daughter’s life but only pays child support.
After breaking things off with Mel B., Murphy began dating Tracey Edmonds, ex wife of Babyface. The two had a ceremonial wedding, but later broke things off before they could make the marriage legal.
After being spotted with former 106 & Park host Rosci Diaz for a few weeks, Eddie seems to be back on the market, but spending quite a lot of time with a blonde model.
According to reports, the model is none other than Paige Butcher.
Page Six reports:
Spike TV’s “Eddie Murphy: One Night Only” tribute was held to honor the veteran comedian on Friday, but it was the blonde bombshell next to him who stole everyone’s attention.
Murphy stepped out hand-in-hand with his gorgeous new flame, 33-year-old Australian model Paige Butcher.
Butcher’s career kicked off at 15 when she won a CoverGirl model search, and she has appeared scantily clad on the covers of magazines like Maxim and Fitness. According to her IMDB page, she’s had bit parts in films “Something’s Gotta Give” and “Big Momma’s House 2” and appeared as herself in a 44-minute documentary titled “Maxim the Real Swimsuit DVD Vol. 2″
Butcher was previously linked to Russell Simmons and Tyson Beckford. She currently resides in New York City.
While it was never confirmed that Eddie and Rosci were a couple, the gossip mill suggests that Rosci was a little bit too clingy for Eddie. A source even told Bossip that she was “stalking” him.
But this didn’t seem to get Rosci down, as she’s been too busy with her new gig as a correspondent for Entertainment Tonight.
