Eddie Murphy facing divorce papers filed by his wife of 12 years, Nicole, which of course isn't something funny for the comedian. The former model, who has mothered five of Murphy's children: Brea, Shayne, Zola, Miles and Bella Zahra, filed the papers in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Citing irreconcilable differences, Nicole has hired famed divorce attorney Neal Hersh, and is asking for custody of the children and seeking spousal support. "The welfare of our children is our main concern and their best interest is our first priority," as said by Murphy through his publicist, Paul Bloch, who confirmed the split to E! Friday.
