Mel B doesn't care that Eddie's getting married
Maybe we didn't give Melanie Brown enough credit for hatching a revenge plot against Eddie Murphy. While Murphy prepares to marry Tracey Edmonds after ditching Mel and their baby, Angel, a big skeleton in Scary Spice’s closet has been revealed — she’s been married for two months!
E! Online reports Brown said “I do” to movie producer Stephen Belafonte in Las Vegas on June 6, citing a clerk from the Clark County Marriage Bureau.
They exchanged vows at the Special Memory Wedding Chapel because they “had wanted to keep the ceremony out of the public eye as they planned a more formal wedding for friends and family later in the year,” said her rep, Natalie Whorms. “Melanie and Stephen felt that they were at a good point in their lives and wanted to make a private commitment to each other.”
British tabloids said Mel turned to Stephen after being jilted by Murphy, and had wanted to keep the marriage hush-hush until she filed a paternity suit against Murphy, which she did last week. This may explain why she hasn’t been too gung-ho about pursuing child support just yet.
