Mel B's Shame Over Doubt
The former Spice Girls star - who has a three-year-old daughter Angel with the comedian - admitted she doesn't think the 'Flubber' star will ever have a role in the tot's life because of his conduct during her pregnancy.
She explained: "Angel is three and I didn't expect her real biological father to pop back into her life. I think, in my mind, I fought so hard for Justice at the very beginning of my pregnancy. I was hanging my head in shame because everyone was like, 'Is that really the father?' but I knew what I knew.
"Do I really want to be back on a red carpet entertaining everyone else's world like, 'Ooh, Eddie's back in our life - we're one big happy family'"
A DNA test eventually proved Eddie was the father of Angel, but Mel - who also has an 11-year-old daughter Phoenix Chi with first husband Jimmy Gulzar - admitted the period when he denied fathering Angel was a "horrible" time.
Mel - who is now married to producer Stephen Belafonte - added on her new reality TV show 'It's A Scary World' : "I had to keep my head down - I had no choice but to just carry on with everything. It brings up all that again and all that hurt I went through by myself and pregnant.
"I had to move to the beach, I had paparazzi following me everywhere, I had people calling me a gold Digger and saying that I got pregnant on purpose. It was a horrible time so I had to make sure I wasn't frustrated by what everyone was saying and forget what actually went on."
