London: Eddie Murphy has laughed off reports saying that he has bought an island in the Bahamas.

The 50-year-old says the story has been embellished by local tour guides.

"If you do (take) one of those boat tours... they always tell people, `And that island is Eddie Murphy`s right there`. And people always go, `I saw your island!` I don`t have no island," contactmusic.com quoted him as saying.
