Angel Iris Murphy, Lillian Murphy

Eddie Murphy's mother, Lillian Murphy, was spotted attending a church event with Eddie's 10-year-old daughter, Angel Iris Murphy, who regularly visits with her famous daddy. The adolescent was pulled into the nasty divorce between her mother, Melanie "Mel B" Brown and Stephen Belafonte as Stephen falsely claimed Murphy, 56, wasn't interested in seeing his daughter.

Belafonte asked a judge to grant him step-parent rights to the child he raised from an infant.

In court documents, Mel B, 42, disputed Belafonte's claim that Murphy never met his 2nd youngest child.

Mel B said during Murphy's first ever visit with Angel, "Eddie gave her the biggest hug and repeatedly told her how much he missed her and how much he loves her."

According to The Blast, Brown said Murphy bought Angel a cellphone to stay in contact with her, and bought her two french bulldog puppies for her birthday. She named one of the puppies Axel, after Murphy’s Beverly Hills Cop character, Axel Foley.

Eddie reportedly wanted Angel to attend the same school as his other children, so that all his kids receive the same level of education, according to The Blast.

    Now which is it? Eddie wants to see the lil girl or not?

  • Reina1718

    Y they including Eddie in their nonsense!

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I was hoping he was seeing her. I think Belafonte was lying.

  • Soda

    Those of you who left your expressions of outrage towards Eddie yesterday may now apologize.?

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I didn't believe that he didn't wanna see his child. What bothers me the most is........why is Stephen so hot behind getting this little girl in his custody. Something just seems really fishy about that

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    So glad that story of being unwanted was untrue.
    Spooky, though, that he’s after someone else’s child. ?

  • Yetunde

    It's about the child support cheques most likely. Eddie Murphy pays Mel B something like $50k a month in maintenance.

  • 5000BlinK

    Thank you for setting the record straight. I almost took it a little personal about Eddie!! Ive been a fan since a little Girl and it just didnt sit right with me about the article yesterday on how the ex hubby was saying her Dad wasnt in her life. All the kids that he have and he is in their life... surely he wouldnt single her out to just leave hanging!!! Eddie know you stop your blessings that way..... Luh you Eddie

  • 5000BlinK

    That is crazy and soooo sad!!! Money will actually have have going after another Mans child and making up rumors about his relationship with his Daughter... I dont like that

  • ShWa

    So glad to hear that it was a lie that he didn't want this beautiful young lady, glad to hear it!

  • 5000BlinK

    Now everything he have said and everything he is going to say... is a LIE

  • You Could Never

    Thing about this here bullshit is that MELANIE BROWN has stated before in the past...TO THE MEDIA...that Eddie didnt want anything to do with that child. NUMEROUS TIMES. While this baby was an infant. School aged. It wasnt too long ago. Okay. As a woman Im riding with you. Esp. my fellow sista. So she painted Eddie as an asshole. NOW she tryna backtrack and like SHE DIDNT DO THAT THERE SHAT. AND she DID. You cannot erase folks memories. She using this little girl as a pawn. Against Eddie. Against the fukka SHE chose to marry. Who I dont think is all that much of a monster now. Okay maybe towards her. But not nessc. his kids. Bc...HOW THE HELL CAN WE BELIEVE MEL? She keeps lying.

  • You Could Never

    I think Melanie the liar.

  • http://www.mylifeinlame.com/?m=1 Kimberly

    Me too. As many kids as Eddie has it would have been very unfortunate for him to not be in this childs life.

  • 5000BlinK

    Hey, Sandra came back and did the story to correct the last story.. Thats good enough, some Sites wont even do that....LOL

  • 5000BlinK

    Im still sitting back observing her about this one. I wonder if she is level headed??

  • You Could Never

    Its a receipt above. She has said it. On TV. Now shit changes. It does. But listen. I aint got time.

  • Phillybruh

    Eddie said not today and not tomorrow! Its not the child he dislikes its the mother.

  • You Could Never

    Naw bc he did diss Mel when she was pregnant and ran from the little girl enough for my blood. All so he could fake marry tracy edmonds. He still a fuck boi to me for that.

  • You Could Never

    He liked her enough to make a baby with her. So there is that

  • Problem solved

    Eddie needs to keep his daughter away from Stephen Belafonte. Something about that man troubles me.

    Here's a pic with Eddie and his daughter.

  • Yoni7

    This pic reminds me of the saying....

    Nobody defends a person more than a mama who knows her son ain't sh!t.

  • Anunnaki

    Not that i really care but how many kids he got,

  • You Could Never

    Got Ms. Lillian out here in HIS damn mess. Chile. I canna

  • You Could Never

    9.

  • Anunnaki

    Dammmm, i thought u was gonna say 4...whewwww

  • Phillybruh

    And he's taking interest and very good care of the child they created.

  • Yoni7

    Right. Like fukk boi's who come into their son's life after they get signed to a team. LOL

  • You Could Never

    Now. After he publicly denied paternity and she had to chase him for a DNA test. So kudos to doing it now.

    Better late than never huh?

  • Phillybruh

    That was 10 years ago, not yestorday

  • Yoni7

    “Eddie gave her the biggest hug and repeatedly told her how much he missed her and how much he loves her.”
    ________
    Pics or it didn't happen.

  • Soda

    The only thing I ever liked about Eddie was his brother Charlie.

  • You Could Never

    She is 10. You dont think that kid is never gonna grow up to see her dad initially denied her and ranned from a DNA test to prove he was her dad? Which essentially was painting her mother in some kind of light? The interview I just posted has her mother CRYING over it. And thats them. Bc ALL of the adults in this scenario are fukked up individuals. But think about the child.

    How would that make ANYONE feel let alone a kid? So sure. dislike for the mother doesnt impact a child. Nope. It sure doesnt huh?

  • Ghost

    This is PR bull! I never seen this child with Eddie Murphy period! During the holidays and family outing pictures..Eddie has all the kids lined up smiling but this one! Grandma had to step in and take control of the selfish situation! Nobody told his aZZ to lay up with Mel B and get caught! He should not take it out on the child because she is a VICTIM in this nonsense! She'll probably be the one that takes care of his aZZ when he gets old! Its usually the neglected ones that come through. I wish her love, happiness and success...because she was born in a mess! smdh

  • Yoni7

    Did Eddie ever sign over his parental rights?

  • You Could Never

    Ive seen this kid with his first wife NICOLE more than I have ever seen her with Eddie. Til now. But whatever.

  • Yoni7

    Someone posted a pic of them together down below.

  • Fire & Ice

    I hope it's true that Eddie is really involved in her life?. Kids don't ask to be here, and shouldn't be apart of adult bullshit.

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    TEN YEARS OLD and all of a sudden we see this? PR at it's worst!

  • Soda

    Wouldn't that end his child support?

  • Berry Melon

    Stephen Belafonte made up that lie? No wonder... he's a compulsive liar. Stephen said that because he wants "rights". I know he helped bring up the girl, but he's not the girl's father - so he needs to stop lurking and stalking Mel B and move on with his life, he looks crazy.
    https://i2-prod.mirror.co.uk/incoming/article4823524.ece/ALTERNATES/s615/MAIN-Mel-B-and-Stephen-Belafonte.jpg

  • You Could Never

    No. He is now helping her... so the man Angel has called dad her whole life and admittedly by Mel's own words...is more of a dad to her than EDDIE...cannot see the kid. Listen. I need food.

    https://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/mel-b-makes-up-ex-12006208

  • Yoni7

    IDK. Hell, some folks sign birth certificates, only to later find out they aren't the father and STILL have to pay. Soooo....

  • CutdBS

    Eddie didn't just buy her some dogs and have that picture taken yesterday. It was a lie.

  • peribabes

    Agreed! He is my fave actor, but that put me in my feelings

  • Alicia.Ashe

    True. I also hope this isn’t a publicity stunt. Get in her life, little girls need they daddy.

  • Guest

    Yup. I remember all of it.

  • Yoni7

    I had leftovers from dinner last night. A NICE piece of salmon, wild rice and broccoli.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Yup. I hope he’s really in her life and not playing on her emotions for publicity.

  • Phillybruh

    Only if her mother is petty and tells her too hurt her. Other than that, once he was shown to be the father he has taken care of the child with time and money.

  • You Could Never

    My father was NOT my little sisters bio dad. He wasnt the best either. He too had character flaws. But when he would come and get me, my sister was ALWAYS invited. And welcomed. And sometimes indeed came. He would request that she comes at times. There was no wrongdoing, so I have an issue with folks like well what does Steve want with ANGEL? As if he is a child molester or something. When he been in the house with the girl for 9.5 years, I would think to continue being her dad is what he wants.

  • You Could Never

    I need something good.

  • 5000BlinK

    Mel B aint riggghttttt

  • Yoni7

    *hands you a snicker* LMAOOOO :hugs:

  • Quitedeliteful

    I don't know if I believe Belafonte's claim that Murphy isn't interested in the daughter. Ten years have passed and Mel B says Murphy is spending time with his daughter but I feel for Belafonte. For the girl's entire life Belafonte has been filling in as the father figure so he may be genuine in his desire to spend time with her.

  • You Could Never

    JUST SAID THIS

  • Yoni7

    Last night was a celebration. LOL I started to bake cookies. LOL

  • You Could Never

    *texts you to find out more about these cookies*

  • Phillybruh

    He's got like 9 and I have never seen too many pics with him and any of them. Doesn't mean they don't exsist.

  • Bee jaay Cee

    But she has a dad who has been involved in her life.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    That sounds sooooo good. I wanted to try this Korean place but the menu had me like huh. Snack portions were between 7 and 10 dollars, and dinner between 11 and 15.

  • Yoni7

    LOL Not THOSE. LOL

  • You Could Never

    And we know this how? Her mom has said on repeat that wasnt the case

  • You Could Never

    Oh shit. I thought we was talking about THOSE kine lmao

  • Phillybruh

    They had a nasty break up and in the midst of that she was pregnant. She didn't have nice things to say about him either.

  • Kemi

    I hope one day the truth will come to light. Too many LIES going on here. She’s going to grow up to read all these things. And I feel sorry for her. I wish her peace and love!

  • You Could Never
  • Phillybruh

    Was the little girl here or with her mother during the holidays. Those kids all have the same mother and with the exception of the two boys and the baby. Did Mel B let her participate in this photo? Did Mel B let her come over for Xmas?

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!

  • You Could Never

    he has 5 baby mothers.

  • Phillybruh

    The two boys, the mel b kid and the new baby.

  • 5000BlinK

    And this makes sense in a humble place but something is going on with Belafonte and Mel and $$$$. Im getting confused with both of their stories at this point. Money win

  • You Could Never

    Did Mel B let her come over for Xmas?
    ^^^^^^^^^^
    You do know you can take a Christmas pic...before Christmas. Which is what most folks do and just release it during the Christmas season. Most professional Christmas pics are taken late Oct/Nov. But okay.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Instead of these two bone-heads fighting it out in court and wasting money on lawyers why don't they just ask the little girl if she'd like to spend time with him???

  • 5000BlinK

    Sometimes we can have 2 Dads or Moms.... depending on the situation

  • You Could Never

    Bc she probably said yes she wants to go with her stepfather and her little sister...and her mama is mad about it.

  • Quitedeliteful

    YUUP. You already know...

  • KcoolMuziq

    I LOVE how Eddie handles ALL his women & kids!!!
    Mel B was the ONLY one that brought him drama & he handled that like a CHAMP!

  • Quitedeliteful

    He did?? How did he handle it?? (No shade, really wanna know...)

  • 5000BlinK

    Damn

  • Phillybruh

    He ignores her pays what's asked and spends time

  • 5000BlinK

    Giggling

  • Phillybruh

    Look I get you love Mel B. But she's the primary parent and regardless of when the pic was taken she wasn't there it was either not Eddies scheduled visits or Mel B schedule she splits her time between here and London so

  • Bree

    It's a shame that this baby is being dragged into this foolishness! Kids don't ask to be born to certain parents. I think Murphy denying his child in the beginning is something he has to live with. Not to say Mel B is innocent. Have not really followed this story in its entirety. Belafonte should get visitation rights since he was a father figure in her life. If he's not bringing harm to the child, why not give him visitation rights? I would not grant him full custody. I hate that kids even celebrity kids are always dragged into battles like this. Go your separate ways and do what's in the best interest of the child, not base their lives on personal feelings

  • 5000BlinK

    Did all this just happen within 48 hours... The pics and stuff???

  • You Could Never

    I dont like Mel B. Didnt you just read I called her ass a lying ass skank. She is no angel in this either. She had the damn nanny there living with her and her kids and her husband in a polyamrous relationship. She needs some sex counseling her damn self.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Damn!!! This is HORRIBLE!!! I didn't really give any thought about her not being included or even loved by Eddie until I actually looked at this picture!!! Everybody in it but the poor baby girl. It might not hurt her now but looking at this will hurt her later because there is no excuse a father can give her as to why she wasn't included or accepted as part of her family!!

  • shelly

    He wants money that’s why he said that about Eddie not being in her life. Terrible thing for a child to see this on social media

  • Yoni7

    +1

  • Yoni7

    Did you eat yet. LMAOOOOOOOO

  • Quitedeliteful

    Nope! Nope! Nope! Eddie should have not done this until his little girl could be included -- even if he doesn't give a damn about her (or her mother) this is just cruel. Both parent are wealthy and control their own schedules. There is no legitimate reason on God's green earth that either one of them could give for not making this happen with her included. (Unless... Maybe Eddie or Mel didn't want her included...This is hard for either parent to justify... )

  • Karen Brady

    I didn't know Lillian was still with us. That's nice.

  • Bree

    Seems that way.

  • KayCeiSoul

    I didn't either! That just warmed my soul to see it.

  • You Could Never

    I caint go right now. I gotta wait til other dude come back lol

  • Karen Brady

    The daughter looks like Mel B.

  • Bree

    If he's not bringing harm to the child, I don't see what the issue is. She can love them all

  • Logan Roberts

    Pics all of a sudden? Hmmm. Eddie isn't playing huh?

  • Yoni7

    Sounds reasonable, but IDK. I don't eat out as much as anymore because I can basically cook all the same stuff at home. I've been SMASHING some "drunken noodles". My wok be like "Bish, not again!" LOL

  • Yoni7

    No. PP is breastfeeding, we can't do Grand-SUN like that. LOL

  • KayCeiSoul

    And that right there is EXACTLY how you handle it like a pro. Kudos to Eddie!

  • Bree

    I agree. Just give him certain rights and be done with it. She's not being harmed.

  • Connie

    I'm confuzzled! Wasn't a post on here yesterday claiming that Eddie had no interest in seeing this child? Someone please help me understand Sandra's flip flopping

  • sunni_daze

    But yesterday you said Eddie has no time for his daughter. Which is it?

  • Yoni7

    *passes you a snicker MINI to hold you over a lil while longer* DASSIT! LOL

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!

  • Bree

    Eddie has been in her life. It's all lies from Belafonte's side. The photo could just be a PR stunt. Shameful. Because this little girl didn't ask for this

  • Logan Roberts

    That's one of my favorite dishes. At home & some restaurants.

  • Ghost

    Yeah! A day late and dollar short...smdh. Why isn't she in the holiday pictures? Just disgusting...

  • Mec-One

    Didn't you just write up that Eddie doesn't see her ...... now she visits him on the regular ...... copy & paste journalism at its finest

  • Ozad

    LOL...Eddie must look at this blog and sent reciepts

  • Ozad

    Eddie said I'm going to show yall how to shut down a rumor....MAMA!!!!

    Eddie looks old as crap in that pic. Very Bill Cosby-ish.

  • Nina Ross

    She doesn't want to pay his ass even more child support a'la Halle Berry, Britney Spears

  • pure_rachet

    I believe Mel B is super petty, wouldn't allow Eddie to see her much. She is doing the same thing with Stephen, whom I believe is a nutcase.

  • sunni_daze

    He had too

  • speakinmymind

    ????

  • Bree

    I understand. We need to be more careful with sharing our bed with just anyone.

  • Nina Ross

    She's already been to pay him 15k a month in alimony she's not trying to pay him child support for a kid that's not even his

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!

  • Connie

    Why Gama Lily can't tho? Lol!

  • Vonn

    Now I have to watch it this weekend.

  • Connie

    Big Mama always come to the rescue. Don't play with Big Ma's babies lol

  • Vonn

    Those are her drunk husband's rules. It's from one of Eddie's stand-up shows.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I know that's right!! He does not deserve child support. Maybe visitation but not money...

  • Logan Roberts

    MAMA! made me think of all the Migos songs. Lol.

  • pure_rachet

    Mel B is a pass around ho. I'd deny too. I don't think Eddie dislikes her. I think he doesn't give a flying fukk about her. But, no denying that he is in the girls life and Stephen is crazy. He's pulled a gun on his eldest step daughter so I wouldn't let him around another one no matter how many times she called him daddy.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I’ve started to cook my own food. Eating out a lot hasn’t been good for my health. I did buy some wheat noodles from the store, just need the veggies for the stir fry.

  • Phillybruh

    Why did I read that in his voice...lol puts those on my list of stand ups to rewatch.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!! Ima have to look him up. I didn't know he was a nutcase.... And Mel B could be really petty -- story changes with the wind...

  • Berry Melon

    Well said! Hopefully he'll keep involved in her life.

  • Yoni7

    My staple stir fry veggies are broccoli, onions, green peppers. But it varies depending on what I'm actually cooking.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Some folks think Belafonte is creepy or, as Pure_Ratchet says a nutcase... Maybe they could give Belafonte supervised visits...

  • Yoni7

    Hell, I wonder when the below picture was taken.

  • Liah

    Werent you apart of the rumor YESTERDAY????##shadyboots

  • Yoni7

    It was as good as the restaurant as well. I did put a lil too much ginger on the salmon tho'. LOL #spicy

  • Liah

    Its called Shady

  • Quitedeliteful

    I've never seen Eddie Murphy's mother before. She looks like a regular mama -- no botox, no lipo, no rocks in the cheeks. I guess she says she doesn't care how much money her son has she is not going under the knife!!

  • Cannelle

    LMAOOO "shadyboots". I'm going to use that.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I try my best, considering I went to journalism school. ?

  • Quitedeliteful

    I had to stop eating out also. It sent my BP thru the roof! I now have it under control and only eat out maybe once every two months. Check out Miracle Noodles. Whyte girl at work told me about these. They seem super healthy and better than pasta...

  • Liah

    LMAO!...Thats the shadiest of the shadiest!...Enjoy!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Please direct all questions to the linked source in that post.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I didn't say anything. I merely reported a story and I linked the source in the post.

  • angrysolo

    yes. it’s refreshing to see a mama just satisfied with being MAMA, not tryna be all out there!

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Will do.

  • Ghost

    IDK about the spends time...

  • ???TheRider???

    Why was I just about to post this! Just hearing her name took me way back!!

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I was going to add mushroom green peppers maybe a little bit of jalapeño to mine. Do you use soy sauce?

  • Ghost

    Yes..she didn't have time to get caught up in Hollywood life! Someone's got to stay down to earth to handle all of the BS! She looks like she will get a NEGRO straight too...LOL

  • Miss Thang

    **

  • 5000BlinK

    The same way I would be....

  • Yoni7

    Always add mushrooms. LOL And instead of jalapeno, I use serranos. Yes I use soy, sweet soy, fish sauce (it STINKS), and sesame oil. Again, it all depends on what I'm cooking. Different dishes require different combinations. Oh and don't forget the ginger and garlic.

  • Simone

    LMFAO!!!!

  • Vonn

    Me too. I laughed as soon as I saw her name.

  • Simone

    These comments calling out yesterday posting....LMAO!!! Happy Friday!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    Sh sure does!!! LOLLOLLOL!!!!

  • Meme

    That belafonte dude is a dangerous one isn't he, he wanted all of what belongs to Mel financially and wants some of eddies money too which actually belongs to sweet Angel, if I where the judge I would make sure he doesn't get access to Angel and that his bio daughter only sees him under very strict supervision. Sorry Mr Murphy we all lambasted you yesterday...myself included (Oooops) but at least it'll keep you on your toes in case you try to ignore your kid in the future

  • Harley
  • Harley

    There are pics of Eddie with her. I just posted one

  • Harley

    She has a father in her life and Belafonte has been accused of doing some weird and odd shit

  • Harley

    Eddie is in her life tho..

  • Harley

    Maybe her mom has custody rights on holidays

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    So true

  • Harley

    Maybe her mom has custody of her on certain holidays. It’s wrong to just assume they purposely left her out

  • Harley

    ??????

  • sunni_daze

    Hmmm okay, but you carried that bone.

  • Trace da Ace

    I gots nothing for this....

  • Dowoop

    I called it when i said Belafonte was angling for some child support for her.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Going under the knife is not , necessary because you have money. Sane folk beleive in GRACE! Is your point an insinuation?

  • suganspice68

    Eddie Murphy's mom look just like Mama Klump *look closely*

  • Toni Toni Toni

    Awww, I'm so happy that he does in deed see her and is involved in her life!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Goes to show how "we" need to mind "our" dam business!

  • Toni Toni Toni

    Right. he got all the blogs lookin'c CRAY CRAY. Hahaha. I'm just happy that he is in that girls life. So i wonder why MEL B even said that tho..

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    I remember Nicole even EMBRACING the lil lady! But I guess that point was omitted yesterday!

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Eddie looks like a 56-year old Black man. If looking like Cosby means you look like a nondescript old Black man then that's that. Get outta here with that Cosby crap because I see you for your works and you're trying to insinuate something terrible. Shame on you.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Eddie Murphy looks like his mother so therefore any character he dresses up as will look like her too lol

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    I'm sure there will be plenty more family portraits that Angel can be a part of. It's not that serious especially if she was in the UK with her mom and couldn't make the photoshoot.

  • interestingconcept1

    I don't where your sources are getting their info, or if you are just making it up as you go along Sandra, but I know for a fact he does see Angel. Often. They are in court because this is the process when you have children with these circumstances

  • Kita Williams

    NOTHIN FROM NOTHIN LEAVES SOMETHIN! LILLIAN!

  • Kita Williams

    the entire drunken song segment LOL "is just a lil respect muthafugga* LMFAO

  • Kita Williams

    SAME! I've seen it a bajillion times and own the dvd

  • Liah

    Gurl!!!!!!!!( rolling my eyes)

  • Quitedeliteful

    Hopefully she'll be in others. I think it's serious only because of all the talk that her dad didn't want her, doesn't want to acknowledge her etc... It's not that serious to adults because we can 'take it all in stride' but with kids, not so much. I'm wondering if in a few years she doesn't ask, 'why didn't you include me?' With Photoshop he could have just inserted her somewhere...

  • Vonn

    Good good memories.

  • Meme

    Yep most def

  • Quitedeliteful

    Nope. I'm not insinuating anything -- just noting that with access to more wealth than most folks will see for generations, she chooses not to go the Hollywood route and get all kinds of procedures done to look smaller, taller, skinnier, younger, etc. that so many women regardless of age succumb to... It is her choice not to indulge so good for her...

  • Quitedeliteful

    I don't know if it was on purpose... I say that she should have been included and arrangements should have been made for the pic to be taken with her in it. Even if she couldn't physically be there then Photoshop her into the pic... or hold off on the until she can be present. How do you explain to a little girl that she was left out because of 'scheduling conflicts'. I feel like the parents should have made it their business to make it happen...

  • TheOwley

    A dead beat emotionally. He gives the monthly check. That's about it.

  • TheOwley

    Sounds like Eddy is reading the comments section and wants to set the record straight. If a man like Stephen is granted any kind of access to your daughter, shame on you for not setting your pride or whatever aside this one time and not coming for your kid publicly. Glad to see grandma knows the love is needed.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I was thinking about ginger too

    See? or spend QUALITY time with her. And I haven't seen her in the Christmas photos or vacation photos with the rest of his children. I don't know him personally but it is my HOPE that she is treated like the rest of his children. I know personally how it feels to be treated DIFFERENTLY and I still remember the hollow feeling to this day and I've been grown a LONG time...ijs

  • Quitedeliteful

    This is true... I'm wondering tho -- Will she want to visit Belafonte when her little sister goes to see him? She's known him all of her life and may truly be attached. Will the sudden cutting him off from her affect her in any way -- especially when the sister can go see him but she can't? Eddie is in her life but this guy was in her day-to-day life. She just might miss him... (Now if she don't miss him then tha hell wit it!!! Errbody can relax...)

  • Karen Brady

    LMAO

  • SweetTEE

    Sandy girl, you had folks like me calling that man a deadbeat yesterday and then you post this like nothing ever happened...super childish lol

  • Karen Brady

    Eddie looks 99 in that pic.

  • Karen Brady

    LMAOOOOOOOO.. OOh I hope it's still on Netfliz cuz now I want to to watch.

  • Karen Brady

    damn.. so good

  • Harley

    I know some situations where parents have custody for summers and holidays. Who knows their arrangements. She could have been in London with her mom for an extended period of time

  • V Dubb

    That was a quick turn around. Who contacted you

  • Logan Roberts

    Eddie must have called his lawyers for defamation. *fixed that for you *

  • ImWoke

    His mom is from a generation that doesn’t believe in unnecessary surgeries

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Eddie is not ignoring that lil girl. Why would he? I think Nicole, a few years back, met with Mel B. They're all his kids and will get equal shares of his millions when he croaks.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I just wrote somethign similar to this. Ur so right.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I find it very odd that he is making these public appearances, and paying this child some mind all of a sudden. It has to have something to do with the custody battle because Eddie has been absent all these years until now. Did Melanie beg him to make these appearances? Even though Stephan has raised her since birth?

  • i troll it like i see it

    Why did it take a raging custody battle for him to pay the child attention instead of just child support? He didn't have a problem with Stephan raising his kid up until now. Eddie is wrong, he should have BEEN in the picture.

  • i troll it like i see it

    You're right. On Melanie B's reality show they both said Eddie doesn't see Angel and really has no real part in her life. Looks like things have changed but isn't it convenient now that her stepfather is looking for visitation?

  • i troll it like i see it

    Strategic photo op. They are going to keep her from Stephan even though he's been raising her. Messy....

  • i troll it like i see it

    That too.

  • i troll it like i see it

    He deserved the dragging yesterday and still does today! You don't just pop up into a kids life one day all of a sudden, and take all the credit! I'm willing to believe if Mel and Stephan were still together Eddie would still just be the daddy on paper.

  • TheOwley

    He might be inching his way there or maybe he was a little in the past, who knows, but Stephen claims he's been father to her since birth and the only daddy she knows. It would drive me crazy if some man was claiming my kid that way. Eddy better step up now because Stephen is all poison for Mel and will use his own daughter to inflict more pain so not far fetch for him to want to use Angel as well.

  • Ghost

    Yes! I'm pissed..and I'm probably taking it personally! But this is a black man with the financial means and LOVE because it appears that he gives mad LOVE to his other children and shows them off and he neglects this one because his mad at the mother! She is HIS! he needs to act like it...just doing this PR to protect his reputation! smdh

    Always had respect and love for Eddie, even during his SHADY times but if this scenario is true..his has lost me forever and a day!

  • Malcom Flex

    Eddie Murphy may be a sexual freak but he takes very good care of all of his children and makes sure they have the best educations possible.

  • Malcom Flex

    Right. EM is putting that child through an elite private school.

  • Malcom Flex

    NO Eddie BEEN taking care of that girl.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Stephan started dating Mel when she was pregnant, back when Eddie Was trying to make it look like that woman was a slut saying he's not the father. I know Stephan is dead wrong for putting hands on Mel but is he a threat to the child? If not then it would seem fair that he'd get visitation along with their daughter Madison. Eddie is popping up from out of nowhere, at least publically, but he's never been ashamed to be seen with his other kids.

  • i troll it like i see it

    It may be for appearances sake, people have been questioned where has Eddie Murphy been through all of this since the spousal abuse was brought to light and he technically has a child in that house. The issue I have with him is he's a dad to his other children in public with no issue, but this one child has not been paid the same respect, this one kid gets acknowledged behind closed doors...until now. Something about it seems self serving.

  • Yashara Bat Orion

    It’s sad how this story started out... very negative. Now we are seeing pictures and articles about Eddie and the child. It’s sad that journalists jump in the first story with the negative headlines. The initial headline should have read..” Belafonte says that Eddie Murphy rarely sees his child Angel”.

  • datjerk

    Just yesterday y'all was roasting Eddie

  • Pebbles

    Oh! I wanted to say it , but didn’t want to come if disrespectful

    I said she like.....

  • the guest

    THIS is what I love to see! Parenting and Grandparenting.

    Child support is a court ordered obligation, does not excuse desertion, and is no substitute for parenting. Being present in a child’s life is parenting.

    Now, can’t hate on Stephen Belafonte because he stepped up when Eddie was in his spiteful mode. Eddie is responsible for that man being in the position to raise his child from birth and being attached.

    Now Eddie is stepping up, so I see why Mel B is respecting Eddie and severing their daughter’s bond with the stepdad. Not fair, but the risk step parents take.

  • the guest

    Providing is one half of parenting, Presence is the other.

  • the guest

    Financially. He was not present in her life since birth until recently. Money is not parenting.

  • the guest

    THANK YOU!!!!

  • the guest

    Speak!!!!

  • the guest

    Stephen Belafonte basically shamed Eddie when he said in public court papers that Eddie wanted nothing to do with the child. Stephen meant to impact the court for his visitation but instead his shaming backfired and motivated Eddie to defend his image and position.

  • Soon2BWife

    If Harry was a decent dude she wouldn’t do this. She is doing the right thing and we have no idea what his motives were and are. An opportunist doesn’t stop being an opportunist because a child is involved.

  • audrey

    When they posted the photo there was a sentence dedicated to Angel, the sister who wasn't with them and they said they missed her and loved her. The girl doesn't live in the USA, but she knows her brothers and sisters, her real father and her grandmother, they simply stay away from the paparazzi.

  • audrey

    The other children live in the US near him, so it's easier to see them together in the holidays, Angel is the only child of Eddie who doesn't live in North America. Also, if we exclude the baby who lives with him, all the other children are older and can follow him in public events, Angel is still too young (and anyway she lives on the other side of the world and can not take a week of vacation and fly to the US every time her father goes out with his children). Sigh. In addition, the photo of Eddie and Angel isn't recent and comes from an old instagram post of the hairdresser of Mel B. These aren't emergency photos made to disprove Belafonte, they are normal photos that show that Eddie frequents Angel away from the paparazzi and with privacy.

  • parisjok

    him and the mom are working together on this to stop her ex from having any visits with the daughter. he has NOT played an active role as dad in her life at all. the mom does not even talk to Eddie instead only to his assistant about the daughter.

    she has proven to be a HUGE liar to get pretty much what she wants and so has he. look at how distance both child and grand mom looks. he might have seen her and given her those items at one time but he has never had any kind of a close on going relationship with her.

    maybe from this drama things will change

  • parisjok

    no, he does not see that girl

  • Lucky8

    Grandma to the rescue, grandma's are the best, and that's a good one.

  • parisjok

    she is just as horrible human being as he is. in this world no matter what moms bad behavior gets a past.

    she keeps saying all these bad things about him so he can have as little time as possible with their child but they BOTH have acted in very very nasty, disgusting horrible ways. she is no better than him at all with her drug use, being terribly drunk in the kids presence and much much more.

    if she was a great mom and cared at all about her kids she would have settled with him so all this dirty truthful information would have stayed out of the papers just like all the other famous divorcing rich couples have done for years. she lost all around because if you think those expensive ass lawyers did not tell her all of this from the beginning you are off the slow bus.

    she is more interested in making things as hard for him as possible than the love she has for her children just like that selfish
    hard headed Halle Berry. all that mean crap she took her baby's daddy through she is still paying 15,000 a month and he has half custody and she was forced by court to put his name on birth certificate.

  • Lucky8

    Kanye' s mom would still be here to see her beautiful grand babies if she had heeded that advice.

  • parisjok

    that is only because it was proven in court that SHE WAS and has always been the bread winner during the entire ten years of marriage!!

    he was spending HER money. she has traveled all around the world and she has done nothing but get married to broke loser men who spend her money and not make their own. she is a horrible person and the only spice girl that is a true horrible person.

    her turning her back on her own mom and sister for the ten years she was with him shows you the rotten human being that she is. what daughter does that? no man I mean no man could get me to not have a loving close connection with my mom. any normal sane well adjusted daughter would feel the same way. but she is none of those things

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Whatever Sandra. The truth is Eddie didn't want to have anything to do with his daughter. The world saw that. That's why a creep like Belafontfake was able to be in her life like that. If Eddie wasn't put on complete blast by that creep, Eddie would still be a celebrity that she see, just like the rest of us; on television. Eddie is trying to save face and his team must have contacted you and told you to change your story immediately..lol.

  • fRAktal Reality

    Am I the only who sees Mrs. Lillian Murphy's resemblance to one of the characters Eddie played in the Nutty Professor?

  • TheOwley

    Yes, financially.

  • Kemi

    She’s a beautiful young lady... all the best to her!

  • TheOwley

    I agree there. It is known that Eddie lost the battle and had to pay child support in the end. No one is disputing he's been a deadbeat but he was never there emotionally for Angel, Stephen has been her daddy all along. Now suddenly pics are popping up of Eddie with Angel. Feuding parents tend to bad mouth the other. This is a form of abuse too. He got physical with Mel and the court will not be sympathetic to him. I do think he should retain access to at least Madison and visitation only if Anger wants to. But Eddie needs to advocate for his minor child now before it's too late.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    He didn't want her in the first place. Cant force emotions on any body. Should be a natural instinct. She wasnt conceived out of love. She was conceived out of lust. That's just the honest truth!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    I doubt VERY SERIOUSLY EDDIE READS the comments on this board!

  • TheOwley

    This site is not the only place with a comments section. He's getting ripped in international sites too. And I'm sure he has some PR access to scan social media. They all do it. He ignored this kid all her life suddenly he's out there with her. There are no coincidences.

  • TheOwley

    All the angsts fall on the parents. They need to suck it up when it comes to their own emotional needs and think about the kids they create. Adults set their mess aside for them. It's no wonder kids are so screwed up today, thanks in part to selfish parents.

  • TheOwley

    We are not disagreeing here.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Angel, Mel and Stephan along with the rest of the family lived in LA, have been for a while.

  • Munchosgirl

    No the story was there when Sandra wrote hers. Several people posted it within the comments, myself being one of them.

  • Munchosgirl

    No....was there the whole time...

  • interestingconcept1

    Have you all ever thought that this is the agreement. That she spends Christmas with her mom and other time with her daddy. He does spend quality time with her. How often do you see Eddie with his other kids, I mean in photos. How about his new baby? Just because we don't see photos doesn't mean it's not happening. It's called quality time, not sharing with the world and see what I'm doing time. Must everything be on social media? Most celebs uses their time with their kids as promotional tools anyway-calling he paparazzi when they are doing a visit or playing at the park. There are two worlds. The one that is really happening and the one they create for us to see. This is crazy. Yes Quality time.

  • Yoni7

    Aaaannnnd you might screw your face up at this one but..........peanut butter pairs really good with chicken. So with a combo like that, I use noodles, veggies, soy, red chili flakes/oil, sweet chili sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil, mirin and peanut butter. SO good. Now trust, I won't eat this at a Chinese restaurant, but I will smash at home.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Very true. I forgot about her...

  • Gigi Neal

    No you are not!! That is what I said when I saw her!! LOL

  • Gigi Neal

    No you are not!! That is what I said when I saw her!! LOL

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I recall a LOOOOOOOOL time ago, that Eddie had questioned the paternity with Necole.
    Eddie is a knucklehead.
