Eddie Murphy and his pregnant lover Mel B have split up.The comic actor, who was planning to marry the former Spice Girl, has revealed he is no longer with Mel and is demanding a paternity test for her unborn child.During an interview on Dutch TV show 'RTL Boulevard', which was conducted last weekend but aired last night (04.12.06), Eddie was asked about his relationship with Mel. He angrily replied: "You're being presumptuous, because we're not together anymore. And I don't know whose child that is, until it comes out and has a blood test. You shouldn't jump to conclusions, sir." However, Eddie's representative has vehemently denied that the actor made that statement.He said: "Mr Murphy does not discuss his personal life publicly, so whatever is being reported is a fabrication and did not occur."It seems Eddie has found a new love already.
Tracey Edmonds, film producer and ex-wife of singer Kenneth 'Babyface' Edmonds, claims she has been dating Eddie for "about a month and a half".
Eddie and Tracey attended the New York premiere of his new film 'Dreamgirls' together on Monday (04.12.06) and said they were "very happy and having fun".
Mel, 31, and Eddie, 45, started dating in June, just two months after the 'Daddy Day Care' actor's divorce from Nicole Mitchell was finalised.
Eddie has five children with Nicole.
Mel - who is five months pregnant - has a seven-year-old daughter Phoenix-Chi with her ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar.
