Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds is talking about his breakup with his ex-wife, Tracy Edmonds. And I”m happy to report the split is anything but messy.
“We”re good,’ Babyface said at a private concert I attended last night at the House of Blues in West Hollywood. “We”re really good. It”s as good as it could get. We”re still very good friends.’
The Edmondses announced about two years ago they were splitting after 13 years of marriage. Shortly after their divorce was finalized this June, Tracy and Eddie Murphy announced they were engaged.
Playlist, Babyface’s new album (releasing next month), is primarily a compilation of eight covers, including Bob Dylan”s “Knockin” on Heaven”s Door,’ James Taylor”s “Fire and Rain’ and Eric Clapton”s “Wonderful Tonight.’
But Babyface”s music-label boss, Antonio “L.A.” Reid, insisted that the man responsible for writing and producing superhits by Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige and Céline Dion include some of his own original material, too. Babyface wrote one of the two new songs, “Not Going Nowhere,’ about when he and Tracy told their two sons they were separating.
“I”m still best of friends with your mom,” Babyface sings in part. “Have no doubt that we”ll still make time to hang out/ I promise I won”t let you down.’
Babyface, 49, said he”s been getting his heart broken ever since he could remember. He recalled the time when a girl he was dating in the eighth grade asked him for what would be his first kiss. “As soon as I pulled away she said, ‘I”m afraid we”re not going to be able to see each other anymore,” ‘ he said with a laugh. “I died right there.’
