The Spice Girl’s memoir promises to disclose it all, from popular flames of her past, to the highs and lows that came with being part of one of the most famous girl groups of all time.
Mel B was able to get her story down on paper, but when it came to recording her audio book, her dyslexia got in the way. So, instead of recording it herself, she decided to find the perfect voice to bring her story to life. With the assistance of Audible, Mel try out three different women for the show, giving them juicy tidbits from her book to read aloud, like when her relationship with Eddie Murphy started to go “spectacularly wrong.”
Mel B had dated a lot of celebrities before her relationship with Eddie Murphy, she notes in her book that the comedian was unlike the guys she’d ever met, and that they “lived in two different worlds.”
“He was Hollywood, old school,” the excerpt reads. “I’m Leeds, comprehensive school. He was famous most of his life and had built himself his own private kingdom … where he could look after and live with his family and friends. I had spent my life trying to break walls down. Eddie made me happier than any man I had ever met.”
Mel B says the two were delighted when they learned she was pregnant with their baby girl,Angel who is now 11-year-old.
“When I got pregnant with Angel we jumped around his ensuite bathroom laughing and crying, bursting with the best news ever,” the excerpt reads. “My family thought it was great because they had never seen me so completely blissed out. Every day I would wake up and he would tell me I was the most beautiful, incredible woman. I’d never felt so in love. So, why did it all go so spectacularly wrong?”
The American songster declared she was pregnant with Angel in 2006, and she said Eddie Murphy was the father. Nevertheless, he later professed openly that he would only believe he was the biological father if a paternity test was taken. Eventually, it was, and Eddie Murphy turned out to be the father.
