Eddie Murphy – who’s been laying low since announcing his shocking split from Tracey Edmonds – emerged in Las Vegas Saturday night for the grand opening of the Bellagio’s new nightclub, The Bank.
The actor – going monochromatic in dark blue pants, turtleneck, overcoat and a Kangol hat – hit the club just before 1 a.m. with a group of 30 people.
During his one-hour stay, Murphy – wearing sunglasses inside – sipped Evian water at a VIP table, dancing only occasionally. The actor seemed to pay particular attention to one woman in his entourage, at one point rubbing her leg and holding her hand in the air during a rousing song.
The Shrek star, 46, exchanged vows with Edmonds, 40, in an opulent New Year’s Day bash on a private island off Bora Bora. But the two spilt just two weeks later, before they even had the chance to make their ceremonial union legal.
After The Bank, he and the mystery woman were spotted walking hand-in-hand into Privé Las Vegas. The two made their way to a VIP table stocked with champagne, vodka and tequila and surrounded by a “wall of security,” said an observer.
