Nicole Murphy is responding to allegations that she was "cheating" with actress Lele Rochon's husband. According to Nicole, she and Hollywood director, Antoine Fuqua, are "just friends."

Blogger B Scott reached out to Nicole Murphy to get some answers, after pics leaked last night showing Eddie Murphy's ex locking lips with the married man. 

And Nicole's comments were "bizarre" to say the least. Despite being caught kissing Lela's man multiple times, Nicole is claiming that the two are "family friends."

“Antoine and I are just family friends. I ran into him in Italy and we exchanged a friendly hello and that was it.”

I don't know about you but when I meet up with family friends, I may dap them up or go in for a hug. There is no lip-kissing action. For Murphy and Fuqua, they seemingly have a pretty tight relationship because that's the story they're going with after the world caught them smooching in private.

Here are pics of the "friendly hello" pics:

So far, Murphy and Fuqua have been silent on the exchange but the model remarked to blogger B. Scott that they're just "family friends." "Antoine and I are just family friends," she said. "I ran into him in Italy and we exchanged a friendly hello and that was it." 

Reps for Fuqua, Rochon and Murphy didn’t immediately return Page Six’s requests for comment, but Murphy told blogger B. Scott that she and Fuqua are just friends.

“Antoine and I are just family friends,” she said. “I ran into him in Italy and we exchanged a friendly hello and that was it.”

Rochon has deleted both her Instagram and Twitter accounts.
