Mel B. talked about how difficult it was for her to be considered a gold digger when she was pregnant with Eddie Murphy’s child, while he denied being the father.
She felt like she ”hang her head in shame” due to Murphy’s denial of fathering her three-year-old daughter Angel.
The singer also revealed that Eddie won’t have a role in Angel’s life because he wasn’t there during Mel’s pregnancy.
“Angel is three and I didn’t expect her real biological father to pop back into her life. I think, in my mind, I fought so hard for justice at the very beginning of my pregnancy. I was hanging my head in shame because everyone was like, ‘Is that really the father?’ but I knew what I knew.
“Do I really want to be back on a red carpet entertaining everyone else’s world like, ‘Ooh, Eddie’s back in our life – we’re one big happy family’”
Nevertheless, thanks to a DNA test, everyone found out that in fact Eddie was the father.
“I had to keep my head down – I had no choice but to just carry on with everything. It brings up all that again and all that hurt I went through by myself and pregnant.
“I had to move to the beach, I had paparazzi following me everywhere, I had people calling me a gold digger and saying that I got pregnant on purpose. It was a horrible time so I had to make sure I wasn’t frustrated by what everyone was saying and forget what actually went on.”
