Eddie Murphy Pops the Question

7/29/2007 11:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Dreamgirls" star Eddie Murphy proved that girlfriend Tracey Edmonds is his favorite girl of all, by presenting her with a ginormous yellow diamond engagement ring this past week.

The ring was massive, but don't expect a blowout wedding. Murphy's first wedding to Nicole Mitchell in 1993 (they split in 2005), was a lavish $1.5 million affair, and is ranked by Forbes in the top ten most expensive celeb weddings of all time. This one, a friend told OK! magazine, "will be a private wedding. Something low key and very romantic."


Murphy is currently embroiled in a bitter battle with former girlfriend/baby mama Scary Spice aka Melanie Brown, with whom he has a child. He and Mel split right before he met Edmonds.

Wow! I didn't know that there was so much HATE for Eddie Murphy out there in the world. I guess you find out eventually. I looked at the link to hear the good news about anengagement, and it's WWIII up in here.

Well, I have this to say: The man was married for 12 years, you gotta give him something for that, because in Hollywood...THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN.

The Whole Mel B Thing; That is just STUPID of him. He got caught slippin'. If he had used protection this wouldn't even be an issue.

The Tracey Thing: Yeah, this is a bit fast, and I question their motives. Both of them, But it is probably opinions that have been thrown around on this page that makes him constantly have a woman in his life.

I feel bad for him though. If he's not with anyone, HE'S GAY. If he is with someone, HE'S A MAN WHORE! Damn people, cut him a break.

Oh yeah, and as for that transvestite thing YEARS AGO, you all have seen Jenny Jones and Ricky Lake and Maury and such. You know darn well they can be very convincing. His problem was soliciting a hooker of any kind since he was married. STUPID.

I thought Tracy Edmonds had class but apparently she doesn't. I can't seem to understand how you can continue to be with a man, who even after finding out the child is his, still hasn't got in contact with the mother or seen the child. How could she be with a man who would rather spend money on her than his newborn child? Mel B should be happy that he went to Tracy because she deserved better. I hope that their marriage doesn't work.

Somebody , shoot it! Quick!    

Baby Face ----Eddie Murphy. I do not see a connection.
Tracey , a hot shot producer, Hollywod business player, was married to Baby Face. Divorce happens, but to pick up on Eddie Murphy!!!!!!!! I guess the Babyface types are too quiet for her nad she likes it raough in adn out of th ebedroom. Rough life.

Eddie, by the way ,people has 2 or 3 kids born out of wedlock and the these kids are not for Nicole Mitchell. This was way beforre he met and married Nicole Mithcell.
He married Nicole Mithell after they had their 2 nd child.
Then he had more kids with Nicole Mitchell. He had 5 kids with her.
How many kids does that so far? It is hard to keep count.
Now, this kid born out of wedlock to stupid and selfish and money seeking MelB.
She tried,as women, ahve since the dawn of time, to trap him, but it isnot working. the innoccent child suffers. The woman, like Mel B., will get monthly money, but Eddie will not hardly ever want to or will see that child jus tas he did with the others born out of wedlock.
His children from Nicole are always at premieres with him and are acknowledged by the Hollywood elite. me B. is now dating Harry Belafonte's sons as an in rode to hit in big and be in the Hollwywood crowd like her pal Victoria Beckham. It did not work as she had palyed with Eddie Murphy. Ihope Belafonte's son leaves her ASAP! Yeah, Eddie should have put a cap on it. That was stupid to start making more babies at his age. Stupid, now Mel B. is trying to get millions from him by hiring Gloria Alllred ,but al lshe is going to get , as the other children did who were not from Eddie's marriage, is a nice monthly check . that is it. her child will have a rough time in Hollyweird being the child wil lbe made fun of bythe press.
Anyhow, girls, remeber, tryingto trap a man by getting pregnant is the oldest trick and it still does not work and the woman burdens the role of parenting . A montly check is not a father. the father is awful too doing that, not having any relationship with the child is sad. What a messed up child that makes.

What is Eddie's count now of kids? Wait, add in as a bonus, Tracey Edmonds two sons from baby Face as Eddie's soon-to-be step-sons?
How manykids does that make now?
Subtract the kids born out of wedlock. those kids with Mel B's baby will not be at movie premieres and going off to Eddie's island he owns in the Carribean with his 5 kids from ex-wife Nicole Mitchell and Tracey Edomnds twosons from baby Face.

He's Boring now    

This jerk lost me after crying crocodile tears when he didnt win an Oscar. What a freaking prude sore loser. Giving that "cause I'm Black" look and all. This goof never made the transition either from the "streets" to the Upper Neighborhood, like that Michael Vick didnt either. At least Murphy aint dog fighting, but baby making aint all that better now is it?

What is with these Black Superstars in Entertainment and Sports? When will it all start getting better? probably not anytime soon, since HIp Hop has become the new Example to follow.

Thank you Eddie Murphy

Rosie the chauvinist    

So is Eddie marrying this one just because she is plastic pretty? Do looks always take precedence over personality and character with men? She doesn't seem real in this photo.

Doesn't it seem tack to get married when you are in the middle of a paternity suit?

I like Eddie Murphy's movies. He's really funny, and a good actor.

I think we know too much about the private lives of these celebrities. Old Hollywood was wise to create mystery around their private lives.

And yet, when she files for divorce, she supposedly will have had no clue that dear, sweet Eddie:

1. Denied paternity of a child with a woman he'd be the first to admit that he had a relationship with (not just sex...but a relationship);
2. Had to be forced into court for said paternity;
3. Keeps making babies;
4. And hangs out with trannies.

But at the time of the divorce, all this will come as a major shock to her because she thought she was "special."

So I'm trying to figure this out. Why do women marry losers like this? Is their self-esteem THAT low that they'd settle for a boychild like him?

Stupid broad.

According to the interview the Mel gave, Eddie and Mel did not split before he met Tracy Edmonds. Mel was pregnant and in England visiting her mother, she read on the news that Eddie was with Tracy and was requesting a DNA test. How low can you go? Apparenty, Eddie goes very low in his committments and loyalty. Hang in there Mel. It must be rough going through something as serious as a pregnancy when your man tosses you aside for the next pretty things he sees. Tracy Edmond- Leave Eddie and go back to Baby Face. It's obvious that he loves you because his new one looks like she could be your sister. Good Luck Kristi

Does anyone remember years ago when Eddie picked up a transvestite prostitute because he was trying to "help her?" Classic. He's trash and anyone who would want to be with him obviously is in it for the money or has little brain matter. I'd like to think it's a combination of the two. As Tammy Wynette's famous song says, D-I-V-O-R-C-E!!!!! I'm singing it in my head now!

Why the hell does any news source play up this guys proposal/wedding. Don't you care that he tried to run from his responsibility of being a father only until it had to be proven via a blood test? I feel sorry for the soon-to-be-born baby, and his soon-to-be wife (no relation to the baby).
