On Friday Eddie Murphy
publicly acknowledge the paternity of Melanie Brown's young
one day after Melanie Brown, also known as Scary Spice, took
legal action to establish the paternity of her young daughter
Angel, Eddie Murphy went public admitting the baby was his.
Melanie Brown filed papers on Thursday and on Friday Eddie
Murphy came out with a statement via his publicist:
"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."
Melanie Brown gave birth to Angel on April 3rd of
2007, which is also Eddie Murphy's birthday. He was listed as
the father of the baby on the birth certificate, however, Murphy
declined to acknowledge he was the father until a paternity test
has been performed. In late June People Magazine reported the
court ordered DNA test results, which proved that Eddie Murphy
was the father of Melanie Brown's baby daughter.
