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.

Dammit, now I know who Brando Murphy is. Where is Myles Murphy? He's Eddie's sexy son w/Nicole Murphy. He has a couple other sons, 1 for sure, but Brando aint his name. I don't believe anyone was buying he's Eddie's son, but maybe Mr. Murphy wants to keep him from profiting or getting any attn off his (em) name.

There are other ways to get instant notoriety Brando. Uh hello, WHERE'S UR EFFIN SEX TAPE?

Dayum, he sure is the spitting image of old Eddie right down to the nose, mouth, eyes, brows, etc. .. I'd be interested to see the results of a DNA test in this one.
And Eddie is being a dick .. sure, anyone can claim to be your kid but he did the same thing to the spice girl who had his baby girl and others.

LoL I am sure that Maury Povich would be more then happy to give Eddie a DNA test so they can get to the bottom of this. Brando would so love to hear the words from Maury, "Eddie you are the Father!"
