Mel makes it up with her ex Ed­die Mur­phy and his mum

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS -

fam­ily now. “It’s a big deal be­cause when Mel orig­i­nally split with Ed­die

Mel and Ed­die put the rows be­hind them it was over the way she spoke to his mum.”

Ed­die dumped Amer­ica’s Got Tal­ent star Mel in 2006, when she was six months preg­nant with An­gel, re­port­edly be­cause she had been “bad­mouthing” Lil­ian.

He orig­i­nally de­nied An­gel was his daugh­ter be­fore a DNA test proved that he was the daddy.

Re­la­tions be­tween Mel and the ac­tor started to thaw in Au­gust when it emerged Ed­die was sup­port­ing the singer’s bid to stop her ex-hus­band Stephen Be­la­fonte, 42, see­ing An­gel. My source says: “Re­la­tions with Mel and Ed­die have im­proved con­sid­er­ably, they are on good terms.

“Mel’s di­vorce with Stephen has brought her closer to Ed­die, who just wants to help as much as he can.”

Ed­die, who has nine chil­dren, is said to be de­ter­mined Be­la­fonte will have noth­ing to do with An­gel and he plans to sup­port Say You’ll Be There singer Mel’s bat­tle to stop the vis­i­ta­tion rights.

But sources close to Be­la­fonte say he is de­ter­mined to see An­gel, who he says he “raised like she was his own”.

Mel, who ac­cused Be­la­fonte of do­mes­tic abuse, has started to put her ac­ri­mo­nious di­vorce be­hind her, healed the rift with her fam­ily and is now set to tour the world with the Spices. Not a bad start to the year, Mel. Re­spect.
