Former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan and his (ex?)girlfriend Nicole Murphy have had a rocky relationship, to say the least. The couple announced they had decided to split two weeks ago, and one report indicated that Murphy broke the news in an attempt to ruin Strahan’s Hall of Fame weekend. If that’s the case, Strahan doesn’t appear to be holding a grudge.
TMZ spotted Strahan and Murphy having lunch together in Beverly Hills on Thursday, and sources reportedly told the gossip site that there is a “possibility” they could be getting back together and “would like to work things out.” They left the restaurant arm-in-arm and ignored the camera guy like he wasn’t even there.
Once Strahan and Murphy got into their cars and went their separate ways, Nicole did tell the photog that Michael is “always a gentleman.”
The New York Daily News reports that the lunch was merely a friendly meeting and does not mean the engagement is back on.
There have been rumors about Michael cheating on Nicole and Nicole cheating on Michael, but we all know how gossip spreads. The two were together for years, so it wouldn’t be unheard of for them to have a lunch date like mature adults.
