An attorney for former Spice Girl Melanie Brown - Mel B - said today that a DNA test has shown that Eddie Murphy is the father of her four-month-old baby.

Murphy has shown "shocking and appalling" conduct since the test, attorney Gloria Allred said in a statement.

The test "established paternity but paternity has not been legally acknowledged," she said.

Brown, also known as "Scary Spice", dated Murphy last year .

The 32-year-old singer gave birth to Angel Iris Murphy Brown on April 3. She listed Murphy as the father on the birth certificate.

Murphy took the DNA test in June, Allred said.

Murphy, 46, has five children from his marriage to Nicole Mitchell Murphy, who filed for divorce in 2005.

Brown also has an eight-year-old daughter.
