Mel B. hurt by Eddie Murphy's paternity claims

Former Spice Girl Mel B., 31, who is five months along with Eddie Murphy‘s child, released a statement earlier today in response to Eddie’s insinuation that the baby may not be his. She said, "I am obviously upset and distressed at some of the comments made by Eddie Murphy to the media. I have no idea why anybody would want to conduct themselves in this kind of manner about such a personal matter in such a public way.

My main concern is for the well being of my daughter Phoenix and of course the baby. I was astonished at what Eddie said – there is absolutely no question that Eddie is the father."

Friends say that Mel was unaware that she and Eddie had split – she instead thought they had simply had an argument. She was flying from the UK to Los Angeles when Eddie’s interview aired, and was told of the news when she landed in LA. The same night, Eddie brought new girlfriend Tracey to an event and revealed that they’d already been dating for six weeks.
