After being proved wrong on his adamant stance on being the father of ex-Spice Melanie Brown’s daughter, the comic actor Eddie Murphy is now stepping back from taking the responsibility of his seventh child. The 46-year-old actor alleges that the singer tricked him into getting her pregnant.

Citing a US report published today, Daily Mail reported that Murphy has no plans to see his daughter because Scary Spice tricked him into having a baby. He insists that Brown convinced him that she was on birth control and that the two only had sex three times.

Brown, 32, gave birth to the baby, Angel Iris Murphy Brown, on April 3, coincidentally also the birth date of The Nutty Professor star.

Murphy and Brown’s relationship became the subject of many tabloid stories in late 2006 after the Wannabe star publicly announced her love and pregnancy with Murphy only to be rejected moments later.

While Eddie now accepts that Angel is his daughter, he says that he won’t see the little girl anytime soon and would rather wait until Angel is older enough to understand the things without her mother’s influence.

And when that would be, no one knows…

Murphy has four daughters, Bria, Shane Audra, Zola Ivy, and Bella Zahra and one son, Miles Mitchell, from his previous marriage to Nicole Mitchell, and another son, Christian from a previous relationship.
