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.
