Antoine Fuqua is an American film producer and director. The 53 years old film director started his career as a music video director. Eventually, he went on to direct thriller and action films. Likewise, he is popular for his 2001 directorial Training Day, an Academy-Award winning action thriller film.
The veteran film director cum producer is recently a hot topic on social media outlets. Let’s find out why.
The Training Days director is allegedly cheating his wife, Lela Rochon, with whom he has two children Asia Rochon and Brando Fuqua. Moreover, he is rumored to have two other children outside of his marriage with Lela. According to thejasminebrand.com, Antoine was spotted locking lips with Nicole Murhpy amid his marriage with wife Lela.
Fashion model Nicole is often popular for her controversies. Similarly, she landed a big controversy for herself and Antoine as well. The former wife of Eddie Murphy, Nicole has issued a statement to TMZ, apologizing for kissing Fuqua. According to her statement, Nicole wants to apologize to her family and the whole of the Fuqua family for what happened. The kiss wasn’t her intention.
The images of Nicole kissing Antoine surfaced while they were enjoying a vacation abroad. Though the kiss seemed to be a casual family kiss, it didn’t’ go well with their fans. No wonder, why. Antoine is a married man and has two children with his wife Lela. Moreover, he is rumored to have two children out of his marriage.
Frankly, Antione doesn’t have quite a good image when it comes to getting close with females rather than his wife.
Though the fans took their kiss the other way, Murphy’s friends believe it to be a friendly kiss. In fact, former American footballer Shannon Sharpe mentioned that Antoine and Murphy are just good friends.
They’re just friends. That’s still my girl and I love her. ???? https://t.co/ByBIM8jl7I
