When the Shrek star Eddie Murphy ended his fling with former Spice Girl Mel B, who was pregnant at the time, live on TV in 2006, it started a spat of words between the pair. However, three years later, despite previously refusing to meet his daughter, it seems Eddie has had a change of heart.
The unlikely truce emerged after it was rumoured that 49-year-old Eddie’s ex-wife Nicole ordered him to take responsibility for his eight children, including his youngest daughter Angel. The actor is said to have invited 34-year-old Mel and her husband Stephen Belafonte along with 3-year-old Angel to his LA mansion.
“Angel is Eddie’s youngest child and Nicole wanted her children to know their half-sister,” a source told the New York Daily. “That helped Eddie to come around and get past all the animosity he had towards Mel.”
