Mel B files suit to establish Murphy as baby daddy

Melanie Brown filed a petition in Superior Court on Wednesday to legally establish Eddie Murphy as the father of her four-month-old daughter Angel. The Spice Girl also intends to seek sole custody and a reasonable amount of child support from Murphy. "I am here today for one reason and one reason only - her name is Angel," Brown said. "Angel is my baby and Eddie's. She will always know that she was planned and wanted by both of us." Despite the DNA test results released last month proving Murphy is the father, Brown's lawyer said in a statement that the test "established paternity but paternity has not been legally acknowledged" and that Murphy has shown "shocking and appalling" behavior.
