Eddie Murphy Steps Out With New Model Girlfriend

Eddie Murphy stepped out with his new girlfriend this weekend, Australian model Paige Butcher. The actor and comedian showed off his stunning blond girlfriend at the premiere of Spike TV’s “Eddie Murphy: One Night Only,” a tribute to the longtime funnyman with appearances by singers and actors like Arsenio Hall, Stevie Wonder, and Tracy Morgan.

Murphy, who has been laying low since starring in 2011’s “Tower Heist,” confirmed what many fans were dreading: he is retiring from comedy.

“I’m just a retired old song and dance man,” he said. “That’s what you do when you’re retired: You come out every now and then and talk about the old days.”

What do you think of Eddie’s new girlfriend? Does she compare to his old flame, Tracey Edmonds?
