R&B singer Toni Braxton and actor/comedian Eddie Murphy are an item! According to an Us Weekly report, Braxton, 44, and Murphy, 50, have been dating for the past four months.

According to a source, Eddie, who has eight kids from previous relationships, and the mother of two “are seeing each other and very into it.” The comic was reportedly spotted cheering on his new boo backstage at her Feb. 19 concert in Los Angeles. And while Braxton’s rep insists, “Toni and Eddie are just friends and have been fans of each other’s work for a long time,” the insider begs to differ, revealing, “Their kids have met and everything. It’s getting very serious.”

Toni was married to musician Keri Lewis from 2001 until 2009, and the couple had two sons together; Denim, 11, and Diezel, 7. As for Eddie he had two children from two relationships before marrying Nicole Mitchell, with whom he had five more children.

He has been involved in several high-profile relationships, including one with former Spice Girl Melanie Brown from 2006 to 2007. Mel B gave birth to their daughter Angel Iris Murphy Brown in April 2007 amidst a paternity scandal in which Murphy was identified as the father after submitting to a DNA test. Eddie exchanged “symbolic” marital vows with movie executive Tracey Edmonds in 2008, which were never made legal. Back in the late 1980s, the actor was romantically linked to the late Whitney Houston.

While Toni came out and admitted she was dating a Caucasian man for the first time during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper back in November, if she’s actually dating Murphy, we can’t wait to see how the reported relationship plays out on Toni’s reality TV show, ‘Braxton Family Values!’
