Nick Cannon has been spending his free time with Michael Strahan’s ex-fiancée Nicole Murphy. The America’s Got Talent host, who filed for divorce from Mariah Carey last month, has been romancing Eddie Murphy’s ex-wife, sources reveal to Us Weekly.
On Tuesday, Feb. 10, the pair enjoyed each other’s company over dinner at NYC’s Bagatelle. According to an eyewitness, the duo dined in the back of the restaurant with another couple and “were dressed up and laughing a lot together.”
Fast-forward four days later, and Cannon was romancing Murphy over dinner on Valentine’s Day uptown.
“Nick and Nicole had a late night romantic dinner on Valentine’s Day at Tavern on the Green Saturday night,” another source reveals to Us, adding that the couple showed up to the central-park-adjacent restaurant late around 11 p.m. when most of the other diners had left.
Cannon, 33, who shares 3-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with Carey, was so attentive to Murphy, 47, he didn’t even notice when a Carey song came on, the insider tells Us.
“They were too into each other to pay attention — they held hands from across the table gazing at each other throughout their meal,” the eyewitness adds.
The apparent new couple dined on oysters, filet mignon, mushroom soup and carbonara pasta as they sipped on red wine.
Another source close to Cannon gushes, “They would honestly be perfect for each other.”
Cannon was married to Mariah Carey for six years until this past summer, when he admitted they had separated and were living apart. On Dec. 12 he filed for divorce. Murphy was previously married to Eddie Murphy from 1993-2006 and was then engaged to Michael Strahan for five years until this past August.
