Take this rumor with a grain of salt much bigger than the box office haul of any Eddie Murphy movie over the last decade.

Great Britain's The Sun claims the comedian has agreed to play The Riddler in the next Batman film, which is scheduled for a 2010 release under the tentative name Gotham.

The newspaper also says Rachel Weisz will play Catwoman, while Shia LaBeouf will portray Robin to Christian Bale's Batman in the sequel to The Dark Knight.

There are two reasons why these rumors are more bogus than the Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag's wedding:

  1. Murphy has not starred in a hit movie since 2000's Nutty Professor II: The Klumps;
  2. The character of Robin is universally ridiculed; 1997's Batman & Robin, with Chris O'Donnell as the iconic sidekick, is considered the worst film in the franchise. By far.

Do you think Eddie Murphy would make a good Riddler?

Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds are doing their best impression of Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon.

Just two weeks after their wedding, the couple has split, Access Hollywood states.

The couple tied the knot on New Year's Day on a private island near Bora Bora in French Polynesia - but the ceremony was a spiritual one; the couple planned on having a legally binding marriage upon returning to the U.S.

But that never took place. Which perhaps could have been a sign that this union was never meant to be.

Murphy's rep issued the following statement::

"After much consideration and discussion, we have jointly decided that we will forego having a legal ceremony as it is not necessary to define our relationship further.

While the recent symbolic union in Bora Bora was representative of our deep love, friendship and respect that we have for one another on a spiritual level, we have decided to remain friends."

Just pronounced husband and wife, Tracey Edmonds and Eddie Murphy share a smooch during their wedding ceremony on an island in French Polynesia.

"It was a very passionate kiss," Edmonds said. "People were shouting we should get our own private island!"

Later that night, we're guessing Tracey and Eddie consummated the marriage. We just hope they were more careful than Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley.

Lord knows we don't need any more Murphy spawns running around.

The first celebrity wedding of the year is in the books.

Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds were married on New Year's Day on a private island off Bora Bora in French Polynesia in front of 25 friends and family.

In a sunset ceremony on the beach Tuesday, Tracy Edmonds walked barefoot down the aisle to Gladys Knight's "Makings of You." The bride wore a custom-designed and form-fitting dress, while Murphy wore a cream suit and vest.

Among the guests were best man Johnny Gill, maid of honor Nicole Avant, matron of honor Julie Lev, as well as Edmonds' parents Jacqueline and George, her brother Michael, and Eddie Murphy's mother Lillian and brother Vernon.

Congratulations, Tracey Edmonds and Eddie Murphy!

Edmonds, 40, gave her bridesmaids gold and diamond earrings from XIV Karats in Beverly Hills, and Murphy, 46, gave his groomsmen D. Atlantis watches.

The wonderful wedding was designed by wedding coordinator Colin Cowie, who created a gazebo on the beach made out of 6,000 shells for the ceremony.

Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds started dating last fall and were engaged in July. Prior to that, he was in a long-term relationship with Melanie Brown.

Eddie Murphy may have riffed against marriage during his famous stand up routine Raw, but rumor now has it he's about to walk down the aisle for a second time.

A source told E! Online that Murphy and Tracey Edmonds have already arrived in Tahiti for the ceremony.

"It's a small, private affair," the insider said.

Last-minute preparations took place earlier this week, reportedly.

"The bridesmaid dresses are all custom from somewhere in Beverly Hills," the source added. "They just had their final fittings."

Edmonds herself hinted that a wedding would take place before 2008.

"I'll say it'll be before the end of the year," she told People magazine in October. "And someplace far away and fun."

Eddie Murphy has supposedly taken home a transvestite prostitute and denied being the father of Melanie Brown's baby.

Nevertheless, the actor and Tracey Edmonds are suddenly a model, traditional couple.

"We haven't moved in together yet. We're waiting until we get married," Edmonds told People.

Wow. That's sort of refreshing to hear, in an age where Nicole Richie and Tameka Foster got knocked up before even walking down the aisle.

"I think it's going to be fun for my kids, because it's [been] just the three of us. If you come to my house, it's very peaceful, very quiet, and I think it's going to be fun for them to have other brothers and sisters to play with," Edmonds said.

Tracey closed by saying Eddie was a "great father," you know, when he actually wants to be and all.

Melanie Brown has learned a lot from Brynn Cameron:

Complain to celebrity gossip reporters about your lazy baby's daddy and watch the money pour in!

Scary Spice, however, has taken it up a notch from lessons learned from the former girlfriend of Matt Leinart: she and her lawyer Gloria Allred, addressed ongoing paternity issues with Eddie Murphy during a press conference yesterday.

People reports that Allred, who claims that Murphy "has not paid one penny of child support" for the former couple's daughter, said she plans to ask the court to award child support and "to decide what is reasonable."

Allred said she has filed a paternity case against Murphy to legally establish that he is the father of their nearly 4-month-old daughter, Angel Iris Murphy Brown, a celebrity baby with far less air time than Sean Preston or Jayden James.

"We've had communication with his attorney, and now we're moving forward," she said at the press conference. The papers are sealed because they concern a child, she added.

"[The fiance of Tracey Edmonds] was promising to do the right thing, but to date he has not done the right thing," said Allred. "Mr. Murphy can have all the babies he chooses to have, but his responsibility needs to be to his own children. [Brown] is seeking sole physical and legal custody."

Allred referred to the "big diamond ring" Murphy bought Edmonds as proof that this actor is very well off... despite the performance of Norbit at the box office.

Brown, wearing a white dress and trying to look at innocent as Jessica Simpson, told the gathered reporters:

"I am here for one reason and one reason only â€" her name is Angel. Angel is my baby and Eddie's. She will always know that she was planned and wanted by both of us, but I want her to know that she has two parents who desire to be responsible for her during her life and who love her so much that they want to be a part of it."

Brown gave birth to the baby girl on April 3. She said from the beginning that Murphy was the father, but he reacted oppositely from Larry Birkhead, initially questioned that claim. He finally took the DNA test in June.

As Usher and Tameka Foster continue to cancel weddings, Eddie Murphy will now be planning another one. The actor proposed to girlfriend Tracey Edmonds with a huge yellow diamond engagement ring this past week.

Of course, the couple now hopes its relationship goes better than Eddie's previous one with Melanie Brown. That union ended with a DNA test and some mean words exchanged between the former lovers. Oh, and a baby.

Meanwhile, Murphy's first wedding to Nicole Mitchell in 1993 was the sort of lavish $1.5 million affair that we're guessing Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt dream about; it's ranked in the top ten most expensive celeb weddings of all time by Forbes.

This one, a friend told OK! magazine, "will be a private wedding. Something low key and very romantic."

That statement may get lost in the pages of OK!, however, as readers focus on the crazy Britney Spears meltdown instead.

Stop hogging all the Spice Girls' headlines, Victoria Beckham! Scary Spice has something to say...

Melanie Brown says that ex-boyfriend Eddie Murphy not only knew about the baby the couple made together, but had promised to marry her after the birth of their now 3-month-old daughter.

"This was a completely planned pregnancy," Brown said, as reported by People magazine. "This wasn't some random, 'Oops I fell over and I'm pregnant.' I don't live my life like that. I'm a responsible parent and have been a responsible single parent since I got divorced."

The singer then got into detail regarding how, like Usher and Tameka Foster, her and Murphy conceived: "As soon as I had my IUD removed we proceeded to get pregnant. It happened quicker than we expected but it was perfect timing."

Well, maybe not perfect. You know, considering Murphy denied he was the father of Angel Iris Murphy until a DNA test proved it.

Like Larry Birkhead must have felt at someone actually not wanting to be a dad, Brown says that seeing the Dutch TV clip sparked a variety of reactions.

"I laughed because that wasn't the guy that I knew who told me he wanted to have a baby and get married," she said. "I just didn't believe it. When I saw it my heart dropped down to my gut."

In the end, though, Brown cryptically talked about the differences in her and Eddie's lifestyles.

"I have a house where it's about my kids and me. I don't have people knocking on my door at 3 and 4 in the morning."

We know that sounds shady, but it was probably just Lindsay Lohan wanting to know if Murphy was interested in a drunken, late-night drive.
