Spice Girl Melanie Brown is battling depression because ex-boyfriend Eddie Murphy is refusing to visit their daughter Angel.
Scary Spice's lawyer Gloria Allred reveals the singer is desperate for six-month-old Angel to have a father figure in her life - but the actor wants to play no part in her upbringing.
Allred says: "Mel's hurting at the moment. Even though she's invited Eddie to visit Angel, he's refused. She's tried every way she can think of to get him to visit his gorgeous baby. It's just hurtful.
"Just because the two are no longer together, doesn't mean the father should avoid being involved in the child's life."
