He even denied his youngest child, Angel Iris, with former Spice Girl Melanie Brown, until a paternity test confirmed he was indeed the father. But after an ugly battle and a paternity test, it was proven that Eddie was indeed the father.
Nicole Mitchell Murphy has had enough of Eddie’s playing around so she filed for a divorce and she received a settlement of $15 million. Unfortunately, she lost more than $7 million of that money in a scam. The scammer now faces tons of criminal charges and is linked to multiple scams. Nicole is said to be close to bankruptcy.
