Rumor Control: Eddie Murphy Says He’s Not Wookin’ Pa Nub With Toni Braxton

- By Bossip Staff

Those of you who said Eddie would rather be with a Tony than Toni might just be right.

Via Page Six:

Eddie Murphy has denied reports that he is dating “Another Sad Love Song” singer Toni Braxton.

When asked if he had a new paramour, Murphy told “Access Hollywood” in an interview last night, “I don’t even know who the new love is. I know I’m single and I’m just up at the house, playing the guitar and being a single dad.”

When asked specifically about reports that he and Braxton were “getting very serious,” Murphy said the rumors aren’t true.

“Toni and I are just friends,” Murphy claimed. “I went to her show, and we’re friends and she’s a very, very sweet girl, but we’re just friends.”

Murphy also took a moment to give his thoughts on the 84th annual Academy Awards, which he was slated to host until his pal and “Tower Heist” director Brett Ratner pulled out of producing the event after making a homophobic comment during a press conference.

“It’s still something that I would like to do one day, because all the best comics have done it,” said Murphy of the awards show. “It’s one of the few things I haven’t done in my 35 years in this business, so I would like to have that be part of my resume as well … If they ask me again, maybe I’ll do it.”

Well, that rumor didn’t last long. We had a feeling Toni didn’t have a strong enough jaw to keep Eddie interested.
