The marriage of Eddie and Nicole Murphy officially ended Monday, court papers reveal.
The comedian will pay child support to his ex-wife, with whom he has five children. Their youngest daughter, Bella Zahra, is 3 years old. Their eldest, Bria, is 15.
Attorneys for Murphy had no comment. Nicole Murphy’s lawyers could not be reached.
Nicole Murphy, a 37-year-old former model, filed for divorce on Aug. 5 in Los Angeles after 12 years of marriage.
“The welfare of our children is our main concern and their best interest is our first priority,” Murphy, 44, said in a statement issued by his rep, Paul Bloch, after the filing.
The couple met in 1988 and wed in 1993.
