Eddie: Prove baby is mine - 5th December


Now fair enough, this isn't written by Vicky, but one of "my team". However, they're stretching use of the term "Exclusive" a bit considering this story was all over the net hours before appearing on The Sun's website, and originally appeared on TMZ.com yesterday afternoon (the source credited by the majority of other outlets carrying this story).

"He was asked about the affair while promoting his new movie Dreamgirls last night. Murphy told an interviewer in New York: “You’re being presumptuous, because we're not together any more. And I don’t know whose child that is, until it comes out and has a blood test. You shouldn’t jump to conclusions, sir.”"

It wasn't last night, it was over the weekend, and during a broadcast on Dutch television. If you're going to steal stories and claim them as exclusive, at least get the details right. And although this next quote comes from a PR person, it's worth noting that his representatives say "Mr. Murphy does not discuss his personal life publicly, so whatever is being reported is a fabrication and did not occur."

UPDATE: You've got to admire Vicky's gall sometimes. Today (7th December) she writes "The ex-Spice Girl only learned of her split from funnyman Eddie when she was told about his comments in The Sun this week." Yes, because nowhere else was carrying those comments, were they? Apart from every other major news agency on the planet.
