Scary Spice: Eddie Murphy Is My Baby Daddy!

4/25/2007 2:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Scary SpiceScary Spice has "no doubt" that her newborn dreamgirl, Angel Iris, is Eddie Murphy's baby!

Melanie B. tells OK! magazine that she has no problem with the "Daddy Day Care" star taking a DNA test -- and wants him to "step up to the plate and be responsible." Murphy has publicly questioned the paternity of the golden child.

The former Spice Girl says she and Eddie were "madly in love" and that she was blindsided by their breakup -- which Melanie found out from a friend! As far as feeling embarrassed for being dumped so publicly, Melanie says, "I don't feel humiliated, I think the only person who has humiliated themselves is Eddie." Now why did she have to go and bring up "Norbit?!"

If her claims are true, Eddie's behavior towards Melanie seems especially troubling, considering what a Good Samaritan the Oscar-nominated star usually is. In 1997, Murphy famously helped his fellow man by giving a ride to a transsexual prostitute.

For the child's sake, I hope Eddie is not the father.

Just my opinion    

Eddie Murphy should be ashamed of himself! He knows they were together at the time she got pregnant which is part of the reason he left her - she wanted to keep the child and he already has 5 by his ex-wife.

Chris Rock was a man about his case - he says he welcomes a paternity test and would contribute to the care of the child if it is his (though he asked for one 10 years ago when this first surfaced and the woman backed down).

Eddie Murphy is a dog for trying to ruin Melanie's reputation by saying he "suspects" she was sleeping with someone else - only a low down dirty dog would sleep with a woman then deny a child might be his.

If he suspected she was cheating on him then he should have worn a condom! There's a lot worse he could get from unprotected sex than a baby.

First of congrats to Scary. It takes lots of courage to be a single mother and have a baby on your own, especially when you have asshole men out there, we walk out on you and leave you to fend for yourself. I have No repect for Eddie Murphy, he needs to step up to the plate!!! If he doesn't scary, take him for all the child support you can, he pays for his other children, this one should be no different. Money can't buy happiness or a baby, and just thank God you have such a blessing - for free!!! Tell asshole Eddie to read Psalms 123 "Children are a gift from God." Take the cash, raise the baby with love. I wouldn't let Eddie see the baby though (even if he doesn't he's still required to pay support) she may feel abandoned by him from his current and potentially future actions. What you have done is SOOOO GREAT...YOU GO GIRL!!!

That is seriously raw. He just dropped her like she was trash. Eddie should have been concerned about her pregnancy and the baby instead of trying to run so fast the other way. What a no-good-dog!! His new girlfriend could care less that it's his baby so why is he trying so hard to distance himself. What a disgrace to real fathers everywhere. Congrats Melanie, what an absolutely beautiful baby, just a doll!!!

Eddie, be a man and step-up instead of running like a puppy. You know you are wrong!

HEY NUMBER 7 - TONTOLINO:

SHE IS NOT A GOLD DIGGER. They dated for awhile. Eddie is a scum bag who should at least be a man and take a DNA test. Dont blame her. You must be a man. A woman in her right state of mind would not defend Eddie.

His wife filed for divorce because she got tired of him screwing Johnny Gill, Arsenio Hall, Sugar Ray Leonard and any little transvestite he could get his tool into.

Murphy should accept this like a man. Sure looks like it could be his. Be a man Murphy. Hopefully its not his kid. How can you watch a movie knowing the star making all this money is being such a s##thead? DNA will set you free if you are right.
