Actress Lela Rochon is going viral again today, and for all the wrong reasons. Just two weeks ago, pics of her husband - director Antoine Fuqua - kissing model Nicole Murphy was leaked online.

Since then, MTO News has learned that Lela and Antoine have decided to remain marriage, and to work on their union.

Well yesterday, the paparazzi managed to catch Lela as she was gong to the airport. Lela did not have on any makeup, and she was not wearing a waist trainer either.

And the pics were not very flattering:


And as you can imagine, social media is having a field day with these pictures. Lela is trending on Twitter this morning, and the vast majority of comments are negative.

She is being body shamed and face shamed by the derogatory posts.

But whatever the users on Twitter think about Lela, we know that her husband Antoine thinks enough of her - that he's still working to stay married to her.

Lela Rochon has been married to producer/director Antoine Fuqua for nearly 20 years. The Christian couple have three children together.

Antoine his one of the most famous Black directors in Hollywood. He's best known for directing the Oscar winning movie Training Day.

Two weeks ago the internet was rocked when images of the married Antoine went viral. The pics showed him kissing a bikini clad Nicole Murphy on the lips.

It could have meant the end of Lela and Antonie's 20 year marriage. But instead, the couple is choosing to work to save their relationship.

Lela's has been leaning on her close friends, including Pauletta Washington (wife of Denzel), during this difficult time, we're told.
