In February 2012, rumors flew that Murphy and R&B songstress Toni Braxton were in cahoots. Sources reported that the two were getting close and things were progressing quickly. Eventually, Murphy put the rumors to rest in an Access Hollywood interview. "I know I'm single and I'm just up at the house, playing the guitar and being a single dad," he claimed. "Toni and I are just friends."
Smash Probability: Ah yes, the "just friends" card. Not the first time an A-list actor has used it, and it certainly won't be the last. We see you, Eddie.
