Coffee run! Eddie Murphy and model girlfriend Paige Butcher get a morning pick-me-up in Beverly Hills
He is set to reprise his role in next year’s TV version of Beverly Hills Cop.
But until then, Eddie Murphy is content patrolling the city for coffee with his Australian girlfriend, Paige Butcher.
The comedian visited his favourite haunt, the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, for an early pick-me-up, dressed down in a sporty Adidas tracksuit and matching sneakers.

The 51-year-old funnyman has been dating the gorgeous 33-year-old model for three months and the new couple looked relaxed as they locked hands during their sunny stroll.
Paige was dressed down in black leggings, a plaid button down, rugged boots and a black leather jacket.
Paige, from Perth Australia, is said to have dated hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons and model Tyson Beckford before reportedly meeting Murphy on the set of 2006 comedy Big Momma’s House 2.
Paige was also seen dutifully sitting beside the womanising funnyman last month at Spike TV’s Eddie Murphy: One Night Only at the Saban Theatre.
The TV special, featuring Arsenio Hall, Stevie Wonder, Tracy Morgan, Adam Sandler and Russell Brand, paid tribute to the influential comedian.
‘I’m just a retired old song-and-dance man,’ Murphy revealed to the crowd.
‘That’s what you do when you’re retired: You come out every now and then and talk about the old days.’
Despite his self-proclaimed retirement, the Shrek star has three film projects in development – including Triplets with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito, and a fourth Beverly Hills Cop installment bought by CBS.
‘I’m excited to revisit Axel Foley again,’ the evergreen comic recently told Hal Lifson for the Chicago Tribune.
‘I feel that now that I am older and hopefully wiser, I can bring some worldliness to the character. Make him more of a veteran.’
Eddie previously dated 106 & Park host Rocsi Diaz after the couple were seen holidaying together in Hawaii with Eddie’s kids back in June.
He even exchanged vows with Tracey Edmonds in a 2008 ceremony on the island of Bora Bora, but later revealed that the nuptials were not legal.
The Coming to America star has a messy past when it comes to romance, first fathering a child with Paulette McNeely in 1989.
He shares five children with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell. The couple divorced in 2006 after 13 years of marriage.
He also has a daughter with former Spice Girl Melanie Brown, whom he dated briefly in 2006.
