Mel B Blocked From Dishing About Eddie Murphy in New Tell-all Book

*Melanie ‘Mel B’ Brown is set to drop a tell-all book titled “Brutally Honest,” but it won’t include juicy stories about her ex Eddie Murphy.

A source told The Sun that Mel ‘has to be very careful about her chapter on Eddie because they have a legal deal in place’ that impacts what she can say publicly about the actor, who she shares 11-year-old daughter Angel with.

According to the source, the 2007 legal deal, “came in the aftermath of him denying being the dad of Angel and then working out a financial deal through lawyers.”

The source said that attorneys for her publisher ‘are looking at how to get around problematic aspects of it, but Mel will not be able to talk about the financials or personal aspects of Eddie’s sex life.

‘A book exposing the highs and lows of their relationship would not be helpful.’

Brown could be on the hook for significant fines if she were to break the preexisting legal pact, according to the publication.

Sources say one romance that will feature in the book is her rocky marriage to ex-husband Stephen Belafonte. Mel claims the former film producer was abusive to her.

“Brutally Honest” is expected to be released in November.

Mel B hopes the book will help encourage victims of domestic abuse to seek help.

“This book will show that abuse can happen to anyone. It is important my three girls, who I raise as a single mother, know how to break the chain of abuse — along with any other woman who reads this book,” she declared.

Stephen told The Sun last week that Mel knows he would sue her if she publishes negative claims about him. He added: “I’ll bet you a billion dollars I am not mentioned in her book.”
