It’s been a while since we’ve seen Eddie Murphy and his life partner Paige Butcher out and about together. The happy couple had front row seats to watch their home town team Los Angeles Lakers lose to the Utah Jazz at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday. Among Eddie’s fans at the Staples Center was Utah star rookie Donovan Mitchell.
During warmups, star-struck Mitchell strolled over to meet his favorite comedian. “It was pretty cool,” Mitchell said. “A guy you’ve seen a bunch of his movies. To see him there was just kind of surreal and it was pretty cool to be able to meet him.”
Eddie, 57, and Paige, 38, share a 1-year-old daughter, Izzy Oona Murphy. He has a total of nine children by multiple women.
