Mel B: Eddie Hasn't Paid a Penny

Melanie Brown, aka Scary Spice, and her lawyer Gloria Allred, held a press conference on Wednesday. Here are the highlights regard baby daddy Eddie Murphy and 4-month-old daughter, Angel Iris Murphy Brown:

Mel B on why she held a press conference: “I am here for one reason and one reason only – her name is Angel. Angel is my baby and Eddie’s. She will always know that she was planned and wanted by both of us, but I want her to know that she has two parents who desire to be responsible for her during her life and who love her so much that they want to be a part of it.”

Mel B on wanting Angel to know Eddie: “I want [my daughter] to know that she has two parents.”

Allred on Eddie’s financial support: “[He] has not paid one penny of child support”

Allred on Eddie’s engagement to girlfriend Tracey Edmonds: “He bought a big diamond ring for his new fianceĆ©. It is nice to be generous to others, but what about his own baby?”

Allred on Eddie’s supposed good intentions: “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.”
