PEOPLE, the same site who released the first official photos of Eddie and Tracey’s “wedding,” are now reporting that the couple has split. After only 2 weeks, Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds have called it quits. The two participated in a spiritual ceremony New Year’s Day in Bora Bora, and were due to make their relationship as husband and wife official over here in the U.S.A. But it looks like that won’t be happening!
“After much consideration and discussion, we have jointly decided that we will forego having a legal ceremony as it is not necessary to define our relationship further,” Murphy and Edmonds tell PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. “While the recent symbolic union in Bora Bora was representative of our deep love, friendship and respect that we have for one another on a spiritual level, we have decided to remain friends.”
According to a source, Norbit’s temper may have played a role in their break-up.
“Eddie started yelling at Tracey in front of people,” says one of Edmonds’s wedding guests. “He did it on a few occasions and it was very embarrassing.”
Welp, since the ceremony on Bora Bora wasn’t “official,” it looks like they won’t have to incur any costs associated with a divorce. So all isn’t lost … I guess?
