Director Antoine Fuqua has been seen for the first time with his wife Lela Rochon following him being caught kissing Nicole Murphy.
Over the weekend, Rochon shared a family photo with her husband and their daughter Asia Fuqua. They were attending the play “Into The Woods” where Asia starred as Cinderella.
She captioned the post, “Congratulations to our amazing daughter @asiafuqua on her starring role of “Cinderella” in #intothewoods you killed it baby girl. We are so proud of you!💕❤️❤️❤️❤️Shine forever bright!!🌟🌟🌟”
Many of their famous friends quickly showed love. Beyonce’s mom, Tina Knowles, wrote, “Congrats to the beautiful Asia a true star in the making 👏🏾👏🏾 “ she got it from her mama”❤️❤️”
La La Anthony commented, “Amazing‼️‼️❤️😘” and Vivica A. Fox said, “FABULOUS! CONGRATS BEAUTIFUL BABYGIRL! 🤗🙆🏾♀💖”
One fan wrote, “She’s beautiful. Apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree. Talented parents.😍 Congratulations and many more.”
This is the first time the couple has been seen publicly since the Nicole Murphy photos were released.
Over the summer, the married director was snapped locking lips with Murphy in multiple positions. Murphy originally claimed the kiss was friendly but later would apologize for the kiss. Fuqua and Rochon have been married since 1999.
In September, Murphy went on Wendy Williams to discuss the incident for the first time. The talk show host did not go soft on Murphy for her behavior.
During the sit-down, Williams grilled Murphy about kissing a married man. Williams told her audience Murphy was a hot topic for “kissing a married man.” Murphy said the photo was “a frozen in time pic” and “I wish it didn’t happen. I think it’s a moment where I should have thought more through the situation, make better judgments, it’s something I apologize for.”
Since the scandal broke, Rochon has been out living her best life and remaining unbothered. She has been traveling the world with close girlfriends. Rochon has been spotted in Cannes and Saint-Tropez. She posted snaps hanging with Angela Bassett, Magic Johnson and his wife Cookie and Holly Robinson Peete.
Many showed support for the family on the recent photo. One wrote “She’s beautiful😍😍. Congrats.. OMG.. She is definitely your twin..❤️❤️❤️❤️” and “Beautiful and talented just like her mom. Congratulations Princess Asia.”
Other commented “Show your daughter is a actress to following in her legendary mother's footsteps” and “Congratulations Mom and Dad what a proud moment 🎊🎉🎈🔥🌟She’s absolutely gorgeous just mommy 👑👑🏆😍💯🙏🏽”
