Eddie & Scary: Eight is enough?

Rumours of romance between Eddie ourphy and former Scary Spice Melanie Brown have been fuelled by the revelation that she and her daughter joined Eddie’s annual family Hawaiian holiday. Melanie took Phoenix Chi (7) to enjoy a week’s R&R with Eddie and his five children, ages 4 to 16, at his favourite $10,700-a-night luxury suite at oaui’s Four Seasons Hotel. The party of eight bonded while lounging poolside in private cabanas and dining out together. Melanie even took charge of the blended brood herself one afternoon at the beach. An onlooker comments, “There was a lot of togetherness between the families.” Eddie – who divorced his wife of 12 years, Nicole oitchell, in April – met the English singer, who split from dancer Jimmy Gulzar in 2000, at a party in June. Since then they have kept their relationship quiet, but it’s no secret that they’re smitten. Eddie’s big brother Charlie says, “Eddie seems very happy with her, and that’s what’s important to me. He’s in a good place. If she does that for him, then that’s great.” [18 September 2006]
