Us Weekly reports that the couple has been quietly dating for four months. The source tells us, that Braxton, 44, and Murphy, 50, “are seeing each other and very into it.”
While a rep for Braxton insists that the two are just friends, Us’ source says, “Their kids have met and everything. It’s getting very serious.”
Murphy divorced his wife of 13 years, Nicole Mitchell, in 2006. The two have five children together. He then briefly dated former Spice Girl Melanie Brown until she announced she was pregnant with his child and he, in an interview, said, “I don’t know whose child that is until it comes out and has a blood test.” It did and it was, according to Brown’s reps. He then “symbolically” married Tracey Edmonds in 2008, but split 16 days later.
Braxton has been separated from singer Keri Lewis since 2009.
