I've been giving old Eddie Murphy crap for being a deadbeat daddy. He deserves it. When his latest baby mama -- Spice Girl Melanie Brown -- said they planned a future together with wedding bells and babies, I felt for her -- she was royally dised. But now it's looking like maybe she just wanted to get married... not necessarily to ole Eddie.
Perez Hilton is reporting that Melanie secretly married her boyfriend, music producer Stephen Belafonte, in Las Vegas on June 6. "He was a really good friend and good support to me during my pregnancy," Mel recently told People.com. "He's a really sweet guy." Melanie was supposed to appear on Larry King Live tonight, but a short time ago I got a news release from Access Hollywood saying that Melanie canceled due to illness.
Though AH has a photo of her -- taken yesterday in Miami -- in which she's smoking, drinking and have a gay old time. Perhaps she really canceled because her marriage secret is out? Not sure why that would upset her... maybe because that would mean less support from her daughter's father? I don't know. Maybe she's not upset at all. Maybe she's just... sick. Let the spin begin.
