Eddie Murphy is threatening to file a lawsuit against Melanie Brown for defamation and extortion.
The legal battle between the baby momma and poppa is getting worse. Hot on the heels of Melanie Brown's paternity suit against him, Eddie Murphy is taking a counter-back step, threatening to sue the singer for defamation and extortion if she continues to spread 'lies' about him.
The actor comedian reportedly already hires top lawyer Marty Singer to have Scary Spice and her high profile lawyer Gloria Allred served with a letter, which read, "You have been engaging in a pattern of disseminating disparaging, negative and defamatory statements about Mr Murphy, portraying him in a false and outrageous light in order to pressure Mr Murphy to capitulate to your highly unreasonable extortionate demands. We demand that you immediately cease and desist from this wrongful conduct."
In another dose of bad news, the letter also claimed Mel B to have demanded Murphy to buy her a $9million house in Malibu and pay for her to live there for the next 18 years. No words just yet from her camp.
Brown filed a paternity suit in Los Angeles Superior Court on August 1st against former boyfriend Murphy, seeks to legally establish him as the father of her four-month-old daughter Angel Iris Murphy Brown while is asking for child support as well.
