Babyface appeared on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” where he discussed the end of his fairytale marriage to Tracey Edmonds and talked about her brief marriage to Eddie Murphy and how he felt about Deion Sanders meeting his children. Watch the clip below.
Oprah’s Next Chapter presented an interview with music legend Babyface to talk to Oprah about his career and shed light on his fairytale marriage to Tracey Edmonds, revealing that it wasn’t what it appeared to be.
On loving and leaving Tracey:
We wanted it to look like that. We felt responsible…the reality is that there was a connection that wasn’t really there. We loved each other but we weren’t really IN love with each other….It was more the idea of it falling apart…and me holding onto the image of what I thought we were…I don’t feel like we were supposed to be together forever…I’m okay with it because I think she’s okay….
On Tracey’s brief marriage to Eddie Murphy:
I didn’t think it was the best thing…I didn’t know Eddie…so, I said to Tracey, ‘It’s your decision..’ It wasn’t for me to step-in…but things happened the way they were supposed to happen.
On meeting Deion Sanders (Tracey’s new beau):
Deion’s a good guy…Deion did one thing for me…which I thought was the classiest thing in the world….I’ve given her my opinion on certain things….I knew Deion seemed like a nice guy…When he called me and said he didn’t want to meet my children until he sat down with me….so he [wanted to] know me before he met my children…I was in. Tracy is family, so I wanna make sure she’s good.
