Clark Dark here with this update on the Eddie Murphy "Who's Your Daddy" paternity saga....
Finally after nearly 5 month Eddie Murphy has acknowledged he is the father of Melanie "Scary Spice" Brown's baby daughter Angel Iris.
This confession came on Thursday, only one day after a news conference held by Mel B and her attorney Gloria "I-Love-Publicity-Get'em-By-The-Short-Hairs" Allred, where it was announced Brown had filed in the Superior Court a petition for sole sutody of the child and "reasonable" support for the daughter whom Mel B has always said is Murphy's daughter despite his protestatons to the contrary. It was also the same day some folks say they saw Nicole Mitchell, Murphy's former wife, in the company her youngest daughter by Murphy enjoying a "Girl Power-Power Luncheon" with Melanie "Scary Spice" Brown at the Ivy a chic restaurant in Beverly Hills.
Gotta hand it to them females....Tracey, Mel B, Gloria Allred, Nicole Mitchell... Looks like they applied just the right amount of pressure. Murphy seems to have had no choice but to acquiesce.
In a statement released on Friday through his publicist Murphy, 46, says he, "always has and will continue to honor his responsibilities as a father."
The statement said, "Mr. Murphy and Ms. Brown dated very briefly and never made any plans of ANY sort. He acknowledges paternity of the child Angel, and has paid child support to Ms. Brown as well as covering the expenses of her pregnancy."
We know Mel B, age 32, differs with Mruphy's version of their relationship and so she says, "Angel is my baby and Eddie's. She will always know that she was planned and wanted by both of us."
According to the statement from Eddie's publicist Murphy "views this as a private matter and as such, will not be making any further comments about it."
And that ladies and gents is all he has to say about this matter. Next the date of his marriage to producer Tracey Edmonds....check back for more info....I'm taking bets that it won't happen....we shall see what we shall see....
