Melanie Brown aka Scary Spice has hired a top Hollywood lawyer in her battle against Eddie Murphy. Mel claims that Eddie is the father of her baby, a claim he denies. Melanie found out that Eddie didn’t believe that was baby and wasn’t dating her anymore when he told a Dutch reporter. Mel has hired Don Engel to help her get as much money out of Eddie as she can.
Sources say that Melanie is looking to get around $30 million from Eddie. Expect this to be a fight, because he has already demanded a DNA test once the baby is born.
A friend close to Scary said, “Mel is refusing to lie down and let Eddie walk all over her – and this is reflected in her choice of lawyer. She wants to hit him where it hurts… in the pocket and they don’t come much better than Don.”
MAURY! Homegirl could save a lot of dough if she just turns to Maury. He solves all problems when it comes to the paternity of a child. I personally think Larry Birkhead is the baby daddy.
