Mel B Pawned Baby Angel Iris Off On Her Maid?

Leaving your 2-month-old daughter with your cleaner for four days while you get hitched in Las Vegas doesn’t sound like great parenting skills, even by Hollywood standards. But that’s the claim made by the former housekeeper of Melanie Brown, who is involved in a rumored $9 million child support battle with baby-daddy Eddie Murphy. Tonia Lamere says Spice Girl Mel B left young Angel Iris with her while she eloped to Sin City with Stephen Belafonte.

“One evening of baby-sitting turned into four days!” Lamere tells Star magazine. “The child was sick, there was no nanny, and when Mel called, she never even asked about the baby.” Lamere also claims she was forced to buy food for baby Iris and her older half-sister (Phoenix Chi, 8) out of her own pocket during the four days Brown was away. Brown’s rep, however, says the whole story smells of green. “Melanie is a hands-on mother completely dedicated to the upbringing of her children and the well-being of her entire family,” she told us yesterday. “Any fictitious accusations to the contrary stem from greedy people looking to make a buck.” [ NY DAILY NEWS ]
