Spice Girl Melanie Brown plans to take her ex-boyfriend comedian
Eddie Murphy to court to claim child-support payments.
According to Hollywood.com, the singer wants to "to decide what
is reasonable" and was "appalled and shocked" when Murphy announced
their break-up on a Dutch TV show last year and denied fathering
her then-unborn child.
What went widely in Mel's favour were the paternity test results
of Murphy in June which proved that the 'Dreamgirls' actor is the
father of her four-month-old baby Angel Iris.
"He has not paid one penny of child support and that a paternity
case has been filed against him. We've had communication with his
attorney, and now we're moving forward. Mr. Murphy was promising to
do the right thing but to date he has not done the right thing. Mr.
Murphy can have all the babies he chooses to have, but his
responsibility needs to be to his own children. (Brown) is seeking
sole physical and legal custody," says Mel's lawyer Gloria
(Angel) to know that she has two parents," adds Mel B.
The news comes only a few days after Murphy confirmed reports he
has become engaged to girlfriend Tracey Edmonds, who he began
dating after splitting with the Spice Girls star last year.
