Eddie Murphy

I'm Not Your Daddy

So BACK OFF!

Eddie Murphy
is on the attack against a comedian who has not-so-subtly insinuated Eddie is his daddy.

Eddie's lawyer fired off several threatening letters to Brando Murphy, claiming the comedian has all but advertised on a sandwich board that he's Eddie's offspring.  In one letter -- obtained by TMZ -- Eddie's lawyer, legal pit bull Marty Singer, threatens to sue him for millions if he doesn't back off.

According to the letters, these are some of the things Brando has done:

-- Changed his last name to Murphy
-- Performing with Richard Pryor's son, Mason, in the "Sons of Comedy" tour.
-- Showing up at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Eddie frequents and screaming, "My father won't talk to me!"

Brando is not backing down, sending his own threatening letter to Eddie, insisting he's never presented himself as Eddie's son and calling Eddie's accusations "vile, base, contemptible, miserable, wretched and loathsome."

Brando says he'll sue Eddie for defamation if he continues what he calls a campaign of intimidation.

Eddie Murphy will prevail, but Brando will get tons of publicity he otherwise would not. Brando is playing the grifter in this for sure.

This douche needs to write some funny material and earn his fame instead of dragging Eddie Murphy into his world.

"Showing up at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Eddie frequents and screaming, "My father won't talk to me!""


That's actually pretty damned funny. Especially if it was done in Eddie's "Gumby" voice.

He may have not came out and directly said "Eddie Murphy is my father", but you change your name to Murphy, hit the road with Pryor's son on the "Son's of Comedy" tour, what exactly do you think the public will assume?!?!?! He's obviously not a good comedian, or he wouldn't need to hitch a ride using Murphy's name...

sometimes a lookalike is just a lookalike, and if he is younger he might make a living as a lookalike, it's all for fun, so why is eddie getting upset, it's just an act
