Edmonds Hits Back At Wedding Day Shoe Deal Story
EDDIE MURPHY's ex-wife TRACEY EDMONDS has laughed off reports a JIMMY CHOO shoe deal cost her her brief marriage to the funnyman.
Reports suggest Edmonds' enterprising brother Michael MCQuam secretly brokered a deal with the top shoe firm for his sister and her bridesmaids to wear Jimmy Choos in wedding photos he hoped to sell to People magazine.
The deal was reportedly done without Murphy's consent or knowledge and led to a dispute on the wedding day (01Jan08).
But Edmonds insists those reporting the story have their facts mixed up - and her brother attempted to broker a watch deal for her husband and his groomsmen.
She says, "That Jimmy Choo stuff, that's the biggest lie. No one even considered doing a deal with Jimmy Choo. I just happened to wear some shoes that were by Jimmy Choo."
And MCQuam tells Sister2Sister magazine that the wedding day deal he did with watch firm D'Atlantis fell through - and he returned the timepieces.
Edmonds and Murphy were married in Bora Bora on New Year's Day (01Jan08). They split two weeks later, while in the process of organising a legal ceremony on American soil.
