Was Michael Strahan cheating on Nicole Murphy?
A source tells TMZ that Nicole went public about their breakup after she found out Strahan was dating another woman. The reality star announced their split on Friday, the day Strahan was being inducted into the professional football Hall of Fame. According to reports, Michael was blindsided by the announcement but per the source, it was not intentional.
The insider tells the news outlet that Murphy was doing some digging and became convinced that he was being unfaithful … It just happened to be the day he was entering the Hall of Fame. It was all coincidence.
Another source tells TMZ that the two had been split for several weeks and that their relationship has been on and off for almost two years. HipHollywood caught up Murphy back in May to talk about she and Strahan’s nuptials … But the model was coy about wedding details. “What am I doing, am I going to elope,” she asked herself. “I have a dress. Like I said, the man has 20 jobs so it’s hard to catch up with him right now.”
Based on Nicole’s comment, it’s safe to say that the duo’s bi-coastal relationship wasn’t as strong in May as many might have assumed. Michael had been living in New York while Nicole was spending most of her time in Los Angeles.
“They love each other very much, but with the distance and work schedule it has been hard to maintain the relationship,” the model’s rep said on Friday.
Michael and Nicole have been dating for over five years.
Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice
Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.
On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.
It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.
So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.
“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”
Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”
And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.
For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”
Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
