Scary Spice and Eddie Murphy to marry

Newly divorced Eddie Murphy and former Spice girl Melanie B., aka Scary Spice, have been dating a little over a month. They’ve already gotten tattoos with each other’s names on them, and now they’re planning on doing something a little less permanent to seal their relationship. Rumor has it they’re planning on getting married this September in LA:

Mel, 31, and Murphy – who is 14 years her senior – are reportedly planning to tie the knot in an intimate ceremony attended by just close family and friends.

However, the pair have drawn up a star-studded guest list, which includes Whitney Houston, for their wedding party.

A source told Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “Mel just wants her and Eddie’s close family to be there for the simple blessing.

“But they will be inviting their friends to a lavish wedding breakfast reception at the venue afterwards.”
Both Mel and the ‘Shrek’ star have been married before.

Murphy divorced his wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy – who he has five children with – in May after 12 years of marriage.

Mel – better known as Scary Spice during her time in the Spice Girls – married dancer Jimmy Gulzar in 1998 but the couple divorced three years later. They have a seven-year-old daughter Phoenix-Chi.

Marrying someone less than a year after meeting them usually means the relationship is doomed – especially in Hollywood. This is not going to last, and if Murphy has any cash left from the 90s Scary is going to do well in the settlement.
