They say when a heart breaks, it don't break even, And it seems as though Marcus Cooper (otherwise known as Pleasure P) is finding out the hard way.
He dated Eddie Murphy's gorgeous daughter Bria Murphy for two years before going through a break up that left him heart-broken and eventually inspired his upcoming album, Marcus Cooper.
This morning, Marcus dropped by the Breakfast Club Morning Show and showed his vulnerable side as he dished on his split with Bria, as well as if allegations of child molestation had anything to do with the break up. He also admitted that he cried when it was over but it fueled inspiration for a lot of records that are on his upcoming disc.
Peep the highlights and interview below:
On Why They Broke Up
To be honest, Bria is younger. I'm 27, she's 22. She gotta live her life a little bit. I had the opportunity to do that when I was her age, so she got to live her life.
On If Bria Dumped Him
Yeah she did. You know when a girl comes to that 'I gotta find myself' that whole type of thing, she finding herself."
On If He Was Heartbroken Over The Break-Up
Of course, that was the worse breakup I ever went through, but you learn from it and keep going. We're cool, she's a good girl, she's doing her thing, I'm doing my thing. Who knows what the future may hold.
On If Any Of His New Songs Are Inspired By Bria
A lot of the songs I'm writing now are inspired by a break up. Something that I really been through. Check out the new album coming in January, Marcus Cooper.
On If The Child Molestation Accusations Caused The Break-Up
Nah, she stuck with me throughout all of that. Everybody knows it's not true so she stuck with me.
On If He Cried
Of course I cried! I'm not gonna play like...you know a lot of guys so swagged out they scared to say they sorry, I ain't got nothing to hide. It hurt me.
