Melanie Brown squares off in court against Eddie Murphy

Former Spice Girl Mel B, aka Melanie Brown, is hauling star Eddie Murphy to court to prove he is the father of her newborn daughter, Angel Iris Murphy Brown.

Brown told People magazine that Murphy won’t take a DNA test or sign the birth certificate, “so it’s going to have to go to court so he can be forced to do it, which is strange since he was the one asking for it.”

TMZ.com reported that Eddie Murphy questioned the paternity on a Dutch television show last year.

“My people have contacted his people and they just had no response to anything.” Murphy’s rep told People: “We do not comment on Mr. Murphy’s personal life.”
