EDDIE MURPHY's baby drama: Coming soon to a courthouse near you? His ex MELANIE BROWN, 31, tells Insider she's ready to play hardball with the Shrek the Third star—whom she claims fathered her 1-month-old daughter Angel Iris Murphy Brown. "He's not doing a DNA test and he's not signing the birth certificate," Brown (a.k.a. the former Scary Spice) said at the L.A. Boots launch party. "So [I'm] going to have to go to court so he can be forced to do it. It's strange since he was the one asking for [the test]." Meanwhile Murphy, 46—now dating TRACEY EDMONDS—has remained mum on the matter while promoting his animated film. His rep could not be reached for comment.

Mayweather fan LUKE PERRY celebrated all the way to the bank, telling Insider, "I won $100!"


Looks, fame and brains? JULIA ROBERTS's 2-year-old twins Hazel and Finn showed off all three on a trip to the Children's Museum of Manhattan with Mom on April 28. After spending a couple of hours in the Dora the Explorer exhibit, the kids thanked the staff—in Spanish!

Forget Dancing with the Stars. CHRISTINA AGUILERA and her crew of more than 20 backup dancers staged their own impromptu dance-off during her tour's Hennessy-sponsored wrap party at Miami club Cameo May 5.

On Cinco de Mayo VINCE VAUGHN rebuffed advances from several comely chicas at Hollywood bar Velvet Margarita Cantina. Instead, he played poker with pals and chatted with SAM ROCKWELL and JON FAVREAU.
