The couple tied the knot on New Year’s Day on a private island near Bora Bora in French Polynesia – but the ceremony was a spiritual one; the couple planned on having a legally binding marriage upon returning to the U.S.

But that never took place. Which perhaps could have been a sign that this union was never meant to be.

Murphy’s rep issued the following statement::

“After much consideration and discussion, we have jointly decided that we will forego having a legal ceremony as it is not necessary to define our relationship further.

While the recent symbolic union in Bora Bora was representative of our deep love, friendship and respect that we have for one another on a spiritual level, we have decided to remain friends.”
