Scary Spice Wants Child Support From Eddie Murphy
August 2, 2007 at 5:45 AM (PT)
SCARY SPICE went to court WEDNESDAY to try to scare up some child support from EDDIE MURPHY. The 32-year-old singer, whose real name is MELANIE BROWN, filed a petition in Superior Court that seeks to legally establish MURPHY as the father of her four-month-old daughter, ANGEL IRIS MURPHY BROWN.
BROWN will also seek sole custody and reasonable child support, attorney GLORIA ALLRED said at a press conference.
"I am here today for one reason and one reason only; her name is ANGEL," BROWN said. "ANGEL is my baby and EDDIE's. She will always know that she was planned and wanted by both of us."
ARNOLD ROBINSON, a spokesman for MURPHY, declined to comment.
