Nicole Murphy and industry executive Bu Thiam were spotted after meeting for lunch at a cafe in Hollywood on Tuesday. Bu apparently prefers his women older, with light skin and good hair. Bu and Nicole shared a joke as Bu walked her back to her Lexus before after lunch. Nicole is a 50-year-old mother-of-5 who prefers her men younger. She previously showed interest in bisexual NFL star Odell Beckham, Jr.
Here’s a better picture of 36-year-old Bu, who once dated Diana Ross’ 45-year-old daughter Tracee Ellis Ross for years. They would’ve gotten married if Tracee didn’t catch him with other women. Tracee probably thought one woman is a mistake, two women is on purpose.
Bu’s older brother is music mogul Akon (“Smack That”, “Locked Up”). Bu is formerly VP of A&R for Def Jam Records. I’m told he didn’t leave the record label on good terms. I wonder what happened?
