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.

I've heard of this guy and he does pretty much say he's Eddie Murphy son.... And just because they look alike doesn't mean they are related

It seems to me there would be a very easy way to put this whole thing to rest. If Eddie is so sure he is not his son, and the other guy is so sure he is his son why not get an independent DNA test and get it over with? Someone isn't being quite truthful.

Well, is Eddie the father, or not? Ya' know they have tests for this kind of thing. I would think the mother would have sued for child support when Eddie was relevant and had money.

Lotta y'all said the same thing about that "Taj Jordan" kid that claimed to be Michael Jordan son. He and his Moms were proven to be frauds in Georgia courts in August. And once pics of her Ex husband surfaced, kid looked just like HIM!!! Smh!...

Who knows if this guy really is his son. But, he did also deny that Spice Gurl, Melanie's little girl. Turns out he was the father. Kind of a pattern... just saying.
