'Scary Spice' takes aim at Eddie Murphy over paternity

LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Former "Spice Girl" Melanie Brown has lashed out at film star and former boyfriend Eddie Murphy, insisting the veteran funnyman is the father of her one-month-old daughter.

In an interview to be broadcast by the syndicated entertainment news show "Extra," Brown said she was baffled by her split with Murphy last year and his subsequent refusal to acknowledge paternity of the child, Angel Iris.
