Eddie Murphy: I am a Good Father

Deadbeat daddy Eddie Murphy defends himself to Entertainment Tonight via a statement on his behalf.

Eddie Murphy always has and will continue to honor his responsibilities as a father. 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. Mr. Murphy views this as a private matter and as such, will not be making any further comments about it.”

In a press conference earlier this week, Mel B’s attorney Gloria Allred alleged that Eddie has not paid a penny in financial support.

He cares more about that donkey character in shrek movies than he does about Angel, his own daughter. Bleh! I hope they bring him down. The donkey gets the money and Angel takes it HAHA!!

They both need to shut up about it, for that baby’s sake.

Eddie should be a man and pay child support. Mel should have known better though. Now it’s time for her to move on wit her life and do what’s best for their child.

Like I said before really, think before you F@CK! Use contraceptives @ least if, you don’t want an unplanned pregnancy. This going to court business is really stupid and childish. You made you’re bed. Time to lay in it! Nuff said!

I think this girl is trying to milk his fame for her benefit. cause he takes good care of his other kids and has provided for ths kid as well. What she is doing is so tacky…Using that baby to milk some fame for dead career. trying to make a comeback on Eddies back.

Eddie better watch out. He has the exes ganging up on him. They had a power lunch together. He should just pay up and try to be a good dad to ALL his kids. This is a private matter and they should take it out of the media.

“I’m a good father” What? He has not even seen the baby in person. He must mean he is a good banker.

hmmmm He said, she said. Wonder who’s telling the truth…

Where do women get off thinking it is the man’s TOTAL responsibility to prevent pregnancy? It is a woman’s responsibility to own their body and take responsibility for how they use it. It’s (both) a man and woman’s responsibility to use protection in the prevention of the AIDS virus! Women, also, have the legal right and privilege in the United States to have early term abortion and should if they are unmarried. We have too many dysfunctional and fatherless families due to sexual promiscuity and lack of responsibility in the United States.

Women on here in support of Melanie Brown’s use of the media to gain what she wants (excessive MONIES via Gloria Allred) and attempts to destroy Eddie Murphy’s professional comeback have no insight into how life nor relationships with men should work. Melanie Brown is the cause of Eddie Murphy not receiving the Academy Award last year for “Dreamgirls” wherein he had received the highest recognition in the Globe Awards and all others. This same woman was five-months pregnant when she married the father of her first daughter and then divorced him one year later.

She has nothing of which to be proud….

Real men, love and support any child….there are so many examples of men who do that for kids who are their biological kids.
Eddie stop it already, the kid is yours, love, care and support her, that’s all….geez be a MAN!

I didn’t believe her claims that it was planned. And, if it was, then planned on her part, but not his. Of course, he should have worn protection, but I think she was out to get pregnant with him from the start, just so she could milk him for child support. I mean, they barely date, and all of a sudden she’s pregnant? Yeah, she planned it. She was probably hoping he would “do the right thing” and marry her.

But, I just don’t get these men with all this money, who refuse to wear protection. They know that they’re taking a chance with women like Brown who have motives. I would think they’d be more careful. Rule number one is you don’t believe a woman just because she says she might be on birth control.

But, this Gloria Alred thing, this could have definitely been done in private. There was no reason for a press conference. They’re just out for publicity.

Plus…isn’t Brown kind of a hypocrite. She said she wants him to be a part of her daughter’s life, yet she wants sole legal and physical custody of THEIR child. So, she wants the money, but she doesn’t want to share custody. If I were Eddie, I would sue for at least partial custody.

i think ms brown is a woman scorn..I believe eddie’s version. she is jealous of his relationship with tracey.. she is flunting her fake relationship with what’s his name weeks after the birth of her baby. trying to make him jealous, FYI…. he has moved on

his same woman was five-months pregnant when she married the father of her first daughter and then divorced him one year later.

She has nothing of which to be proud….

She is a real trashy *****. She get pregnant and then tries to get the man to marry her.

EXACTLY!

Melanie is a multi millionaire so I don’t know why people think Melannie is trying to use Eddie. Look, Melanie has a RIGHT to be angry.How would you feel if a man goes out of his way in the media and try to make you look like a **** and ***** in the press? Eddie said last year he wasn’t sure if the child was his? I mean its a heartless and cruel thing to do. They dated for a while Melanie thought they were in love and he bailed out like a lot of men do. However, Melanie took the high road and said with certainity that Eddie was the father. And in June the DNA test CONFIRMED Eddie was the father but that SOB wasn’t paying support. So Melanie had to CLEAR HER NAME and take this SOB to court. The only reason Eddie is making a public statement is because he looks like a JACKASS. I say good for Melanie she is thinking about her daughter Angel. Angel has a RIGHT TO KNOW who her father is. If Eddie doesn’t want to see the child that’s his business but Eddie has to pay child support because that’s the LAW. You make your bed and you LIE IN IT. Go Melanie and and make that SOB PAY UP!!!!!

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.

I believe the above, what Eddie says. Mel B IS A LYING GOLD-DIGGER.

Of course it was planned. She planned it. She’ll get what she wanted – MONEY, MONEY, MONEY, MONEY and MORE MONEY….. She did the same thing before.

Eddie should have known better…Protection, Protection, Protection.

Mel and Gloria need to keep their mouths shut. Neither of these females have any class.

Mel B, learn to use birth control, sl*t! Stopping having babies then expecting the man to marry you AFTER THE FACT.

Whether planned or not. Now there is a baby and whether they like or not they are the mom and dad. I think think they both should take responsibility for the situation

One thing i have to ask Eddy.. that girl is now 4 months old. My dad held me since i was 4 minutes hold. Have you even touched or seen this 4 month baby of urs?

You are a dad and take freaking responsibility for it. A child needs to be loved, cared and cherished and as the freking sperminator it is ur responsibility to do so.

I dont care if they had a relationship for one second or fifty years. Eddie acted like a complete Jeerk!! Shame on you all who call Mel B a gold digger. She had to hear the denial and dumping from the radio, that was bad enough. She makes enough money and Its her childs right to know her father. Eddie Murphy has a history of impregnating women and demanding for a paternity tests. He did that for his first 3 children, 3 different women before he married Nicole and had 5 kids. The guy has like 9 kids and still is getting engaged to be married. That is a guy who needs to be snipped and kept away from all women!!!!

He comes across as an irresponsible arrogant character with very little regard for women. Children are human beings that have to be natured and protected and not denied on the radio and during press conferences. He needs to step up his game take back the ring he bought the new girl and send over some money for diapers and formular.

Shame on you Eddie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

you all are stupid! @ 08/04/2007 at 1:41 am

this girl has millions, probably has more money than eddie, she doesn’t need his money. she just want him to care for his child, is that a crime???? he needs to take responsibilty and take care of his kid!!!!!it’s obvious that he is a liar, first he denied being the father, and now this?? eddie grow up!your career is over..so take care of this kid, and your other ones as well. no more visits from tranny hookers ! okey

He’s an A**sshole for treatin’ Mel B like that and his legitimate daughter like that. I hope Melanie will get all his money. He’s goin’ to *********** for what he did to her.

Mel needs to be the bigger person in this situation. If Eddie won’t pay child support, then take him to court. He needs to take responsibility. Regardless of what Eddie has done wrong, don’t run your mouth about it to the media. It is so desperate and pathetic to do that. Maybe Mel did make plans with Eddie but guess what, it didn’t work out and he doesn’t want her. Instead of complaining about it she needs to MOVE ON, for her sake and for that baby’s sake.

We can’t know who is right or wrong unless we were there, but somewhere between their two stories you have the honest truth. I just hope one of them is mature enough to rise above this drama, before their kid is the one that suffers.

Thank goodness there are some sensible people in here who see through Brown’s antics! I think she is total trash for doing this so publicly. She is old enough to know how to NOT get pregnant and she does NOT need his money. She is pure malice and a money-hungry attention *****. Look how tarted up she was for lunch where she ran into Murphy’s ex. Who the hell dresses like that, especially during the day! I call bullshit on all of it. Murphy is well rid of her.
