Eddie Murphy, Paige Butcher: Actor And Much Younger Model Girlfriend Are Still Going Strong
Wednesday, May 15th
Eddie Murphy and girlfriend Paige Butcher are still together and seem closer than ever, despite an 18-year age difference.
The couple, who went public last November at Spike TV's "Eddie Murphy: One Night Only" tribute, were seen out on a coffee run Sunday morning in Los Angeles, Calif. The 52-year-old comedian and his 33-year-old Australian model girlfriend were casually dressed as they held hands.
Murphy divorced his wife of 12 years, Nicole, in 2006. The two have five kids together. The veteran comedian also fathered a child with former Spice Girls member Melanie Brown (aka "Scary Spice.")
According to the Daily Mail, Butcher has previously dated Russell Simmons and Tyson Beckford.
The famed actor has been taking it easy professionally, making roughly a movie a year for the past few years. "Beverly Hills Cop," a series produced by Murphy in which he was set to appear in a recurring role, was recently rejected by CBS. Still, it's said the reboot might air elsewhere.
