Tracey Edmonds is shooting down rumors that she and Eddie Murphy and have split up, telling PEOPLE the couple are actually "very happy."

Rumors surfaced this week that the couple had broken up due to the stress of the paternity case between Murphy and his former girlfriend, Spice Girl Melanie Brown.

"I did hear about the false rumor. That is absolutely not true," Edmonds, a film producer who started dating Murphy last fall, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

On June 22, a rep for Brown announced that DNA tests proved Murphy is the father of Brown's 2-month-old daughter, Angel Iris. Murphy's rep declined to comment on the test results.

However, Edmonds, whose divorce from singer Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds was finalized in June, said that “the paternity test had no impact on our relationship.”

In fact, Edmonds said she and Murphy are going on an Italian vacation for the Fourth of July holiday.
