New York (ANI): Eddie Murphy is making efforts to get to know his daughter with ex-flame Melanie Brown, it has emerged. "While promoting 'Shrek Forever After,' Eddie talked a lot about his kids," the New York Daily News quoted a source, as saying. "Ever since, he's been making efforts with Mel to get to know their daughter."
Murphy and Brown have feuded quite publicly since her pregnancy was revealed in 2006, with Murphy initially denying he was the dad. Even though the actor has been repeatedly accused of wanting nothing to do with his child by the former Scary Spice, it seems he has had a change of heart lately.
The insider revealed Murphy hosted a party at his LA compound last week, and Brown, her hubby, Stephen Belafonte, and Angel, her 3-year-old daughter with Murphy, were present. The snitch said: "They've both said some really nasty things about each other to the press. So needless to say, some guests were shocked."
The informer added: "Eddie's ex-wife Nicole helped them reconcile their issues, too. Angel is Eddie's youngest child, and Nicole wanted her children to know her. That helped Eddie to come around and get past all the animosity he had toward Mel. All of the children were there for the party, and it appeared that they're one big happy, blended family."
