In a move sure to make Melanie Brown's attorney light up like a Christmas tree, People reports that Eddie Murphy is engaged to his movie producer girlfriend, Tracey Edmonds. "Tracey and Eddie were engaged last Wednesday," Edmonds' personal assistant told the magazine. "Tracey and Eddie are both very much in love and are excited about spending the rest of their lives together." Pre-engagement this month, Edmonds, who started dating Murphy last fall, had to shoot down rumors that they had split after a paternity dispute between Murphy and ex-Spice Girlfriend Mel B., who gave birth to a daughter, Angel, in April. Murphy had said he wasn't sure he was the father; a paternity test showed that he is, according to Brown's camp.

Custody question

Britney Spears' marriage to Kevin Federline officially ended Monday, with the final papers mandating continued 50-50 custody of their two young sons, according to reports. But celebrity Web site said that neither wild and wacky Spears nor Federline is happy with the custody arrangement and that he will go to court ASAP to ask for full custody of Sean Preston, 22 months, and Jayden James, 10 months. As for alimony, Spears' attorney, Laura Wasser, said that information won't be made public. "Most of that tracks the prenup," she told the Associated Press without elaborating.
