Eddie Murphy and Jasmine Guy presumably met on the set of 1989 comedy Harlem Nights. By then, Murphy was a legitimate A-list actor with several Golden Globe nods and a tremendous box office history. Guy had already made a name for herself on Fame, A Different World, and School Daze. An innocent fling was the rumor, but any sort of relationship beyond the filming of the movie is doubtful, as Murphy certainly had his hands full with other starlets.  

Smash Probability: At the time, it was every boy's dream to get with Whitley Gilbert from A Different World, while Eddie Murphy happened to be the star of the moment. An off-screen romance wouldn't be a far-fetched.
