He gets the exclusive interviews with whomever he pleases, and last night Larry King talked candidly with Spice Girl Melanie Brown.
With the new baby, new marriage, and Eddie Murphy’s constant dissing, Mel had a few things to get off of her chest. And she took full advantage of her platform on Larry King Live last night.
She began by dishing about her ex-lover, Norbit actor Eddie Muphy, and his lack of responsibility to their daughter Angel Iris. “I think the most important thing to me is that Angel knows her dad,” she told King. “And her dad is Eddie Murphy, and she has every right to know who he is.”
“I think he’s been extremely disrespectful and I don’t think anybody should be allowed to get away with saying what he said whilst I was pregnant…Even when the DNA test results were in there was still nothing further said, which I found baffling. After all this, and still nothing? It’s unacceptable.”
The singer known as Scary Spice detailed her heartache as Murphy acted coy about the whole thing. “I wish we could handle it privately,” she said, “But when my name is thrown out there when I’m four months pregnant, with the…’is it mine, I don’t know,’ of course I’m going to stand up for myself.”
Switching gears to a happier subject, he June 6th marriage to Stephen Belafonte, Mel told Larry, “We wanted it to be a private thing right now, and a commitment just for me and him. That was important.” And the singer says she’d love to have kids with her new husband as well.
