Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds are ending their marriage — just two weeks after the Bora Bora ceremony and triple-X rated wedding kiss.
But the wedding wasn’t even over when Eddie started yelling at his new bride in front of the guests.
They’ve said they’re not considering having the symbolic Bora Bora ceremony legalized. “It 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.â€
In other words, Eddie, she’s kicking you out of her life.
Since the couple’s nuptials took place in a foreign country, the wedding was purely ceremonial â€“ not legal. Murphy, 46, and Edmonds, 40, originally said they planned to have a legal ceremony in the United States, but that is now off.
OnÂ Thursday, Eddie Murphy and girlfriend, producer Tracey Edmonds tied the knot in a private island off Bora Bora in French Polynesia. Eddie split up from his wife of 13 years, Nicole, in 2006, and in 2007 fathered the child of Scary Spice (aka Melanie Brown), and would not acknowledge his paternity until 4 months after the birth. Tsk tsk.
Scary SpiceÂ Melanie BrownÂ has some secrets up her sleeve, like secretly marrying boyfriend Stephen Belafonte in Las Vegas on June 6.Â Well, that one totally slipped by everyone, now didn’t it?
Brown married movie/TV producer Belafonte in a small ceremony in Sin City.Â The couple started dating shortly after Scary split from baby daddy Eddie Murphy.
Let’s hope this one doesn’t screw her & run, like good ole Eddie.
Former Scary Spice Melanie Brown was spotted out & about on Monday showing off her recently born baby Angel Iris Murphy Brown.
Brown, who is taking supposed father Eddie Murphy to court over the child, was seen taking the two-month-old for a check-up in Beverly Hills.Â Who knew that Spice had managed her money so well that she could afford Beverly Hills anyhoo?….
Ouch, former Spice Girl Melanie Brown is not looking so hot pregs.Â Brown was spotted in Beverly Hills Tuesday actually looking like she was photographed on her lawn picking up the morning paper before her daily shower.Â I mean, this is a horrible look for Melanie!
Despite the questions of paternity (even though slimypants Eddie Murphy is to blame), Melanie recently celebrated the upcoming birth of her second child with a baby shower.Â
Here’s looking forward to a non-pregnant Melanie in the months to come.
â€œI think in twenty years I’ll be looked at like Bob Hope. Doing those president jokes and golf shit. It scares me.â€
For one thing, in my opinion, this baby might not beÂ a baby at all, it might be a cantaloupe eating aÂ cherry pie for all I can tell.Â Â It does look like Melanie had this ultrasound done January 23 at the UCLA Medical Center & I very seriously doubt that impregnator Eddie Murphy was holding her hand through the ordeal.Â
What do you think- Is this Melanie Brown & Eddie Murphy’s baby or really just a cantaloupe eating on some pie?

The happy couple were snapped arriving at the premiere of indie movie If I’d Known I WasÂ Genius.Â Murphy, it seems, has a lot to be happy about since the announcement of his Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Dreamgirls.Â
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty much over Eddie Murphy.Â I just don’t that love ‘em, impregnate them & leave ‘em thing he has going on with Scary SpiceÂ Melanie Brown.Â
You tell me- Do you still like Eddie after all these years?
