Tracey Elaine Edmonds (née McQuarn;born February 18, 1967) is an American businesswoman, television producer and personality. She is the CEO of Edmonds Entertainment Group Inc and COO of Our Stories Films and is a host on the television show Extra. She currently sits on the national board of directors for the Producers Guild of America.
Edmonds was born in Los Angeles, California. She is the daughter of Jacqueline and George McQuarn and sister of Michael McQuarn. Her parents are divorced. She graduated from Stanford University with a degree in psychobiology in 1987.
Edmonds met Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds in 1990 when she auditioned for the music video "Whip Appeal." The two married on September 5, 1992 and they have two sons, Brandon and Dylan. On January 7, 2005, she filed for divorce in Los Angeles County Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences.
Edmonds exchanged vows with actor and comedian Eddie Murphy on January 1, 2008, in a private ceremony on an island off Bora Bora. On January 16, the couple released a statement saying, "After much consideration and discussion, we have jointly decided that we will forgo having a legal ceremony as it is not necessary to define our relationship further," and called the Bora Bora wedding a "symbolic union". The two had planned on having a legal ceremony upon their return to the U.S. but did not, and their wedding was never official. They split two weeks after their return.
