Nicole Murphy says it was a 'mistake' to kiss married director Antoine Fuqua

Nicole Murphy says she regrets kissing married director Antoine Fuqua.

During an appearance on "The Wendy Williams Show" Tuesday, the model, 51, shared her side of the story behind photos of her smooch with Fuqua in Italy, which sparked headlines this July.

"It was a frozen in time thing. Trust me, I wish it didn’t happen,” Murphy told host Wendy Williams. “It was a moment where I should’ve thought more through the situation. Made better judgments… It’s something that I apologize for.”

While Fuqua was there for a film festival, she said she was in the country for business.

"It happened… I was at the pool, we were on a different timezone, I was having a hard time staying awake, I was drinking an espresso," she added. "I regret it, and I apologize for it. And I am a human being, it was a mistake."

Murphy claimed a statement released on her behalf after the kiss was not from her, adding that despite reports to the contrary, she was not friends with Fuqua's wife, actress Lela Rochon, prior to the kiss.

“There was a statement that was released, I didn’t put out that statement,” she said.

"I don't know her like that," Murphy said. "Social media had to where we were family friends, I was at her wedding, in her wedding, kicking it at her house. It's not true. None of that is true."

She added that "at the moment, I may have had a different impression of the situation," and said called rumors that she broke up Fuqua and Rochon's marriage "false."

Murphy also warned other women to "do their research."

"This could happen to you," she said.

Fuqua has been married to Rochon since 1999. Murphy was previously married to actor Eddie Murphy from 1993 to 2006.

Murphy said she apologized to her family and Rochon's family: "I'm woman enough to admit it was a mistake. … I wish I could take it back, but I can't."
