Mel B: Murphy is in Angel's life

Mel B says Eddie Murphy is very much a part of their daughter's life

Mel B has told how she does not feel proud of the fact that her daughters have different fathers.

The former Spice Girl is mum to Phoenix Chi, 11, whose dad is dancer and ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar, and Angel Iris, three, the daughter of Eddie Murphy.

She told ITV1's Lorraine: "I've got two beautiful daughters by two different fathers - I'm not very proud of that but it is what it is so I have to act accordingly - I'm all about peace and harmony."

Speaking ahead of her new reality show It's A Scary World, Mel said that Hollywood star Eddie is a part of Angel's life.

She said: "Me and Eddie have a good relationship - he sees his daughter - they have a birthday on the same day - he threw a lovely birthday party for her this year."

Scary Spice also said that she and husband Stephen Belafonte have therapy for their marriage.

She said: "We're so close, we do business together so sometimes the boundaries can get crossed a little bit and we have to take time out to spend time as husband and wife. So we go on our date night once a week - yes we have therapy - no we're not getting a divorce.

"The last thing either of us would want is something small to build into something big, so it gets squashed immediately through therapy."

Virgo:

You'll have to make an emotional appeal to your boss. Unless things change, you might have to find another job. You're a very tolerant person, but you can't handle toxic behaviour. A colleague who takes great pleasure in making everyone feel miserable should be reprimanded. Make it clear you aren't the only person who is suffering from their abuse. Explain how this bully is ruining morale. It's a system wide problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.More
