Michael Strahan & Nicole Murphy: Are They Back Together After ‘Intense’ Lunch Date?
Things got very emotional during Michael and Nicole’s meet up.
“It was intense. They hadn’t seen one another or had a face-to-face since it was leaked that they were calling it off,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“Mike was not happy. Nicole told me he accused her talking to the media behind his back and that that was not cool. He was pissed. Of course, she told him she didn’t, but I don’t think he really believes her,” our source reveals. Michael really wants Nicole to keep quiet about their relationship.
“Whatever the case may be, he told her under no circumstances is she to talk to the press. He doesn’t want his business out there like that. He told her he’s very private and that he doesn’t want this affecting his business relationships or his jobs. He was dead serious,” our source spills.
The duo also discussed all the infidelity and cheating rumors.
Michael Strahan & Nicole Murphy: ‘He Won’t Admit He Did Something Wrong’
“I don’t know if she’s forgiven him for cheating. It’s not like he admitted it to her. Nicole‘s been cheated on before by Eddie Murphy and it broke her to pieces. She can put up with just about anything — even a long distance relationship with Michael — and she has, but she’s not going to be played. And the fact Mike won’t even admit that he did something wrong after she basically caught him red-handed bothers her,” our source says.
As we previously reported, Nicole reportedly caught Michael cheating back in January, 2014.
The ex-loves ended things on a positive note. “After he pretty much checked her from the ground up, he immediately calmed down. He was cool, she said, and then they changed the subject and talked about their children and basically caught up on life and family issues,” our source says. Could they ever reconcile?
“Anything is possible, but they way Nicole‘s putting it, they’re just figuring things out for now. They’re going to be friends now and that’s how things are.” We’re happy to hear they’re working on having a friendship!
