Funnyman Eddie Murphy is dating R&B producer/singer Kenneth 'Babyface' Edmonds' ex-wife Tracey, following his split from pregnant singer Melanie Brown.

The Shrek comedian, 45, told Dutch TV show RTL Boulevard yesterday that he was "not together anymore" with the former Spice Girl, who is six-months pregnant with her second child.

Murphy and Brown, 31, started dating in June--just two months after the actor divorced his wife Nicole. Despite Brown's recent claims the couple are having a baby together, Murphy insists he isn't prepared to assume parental responsibilities just yet, saying, "I don't know whose child that is, until it comes out and has a blood test."

Last night, Murphy went public with Tracey at the New York premiere of his latest film Dreamgirls, where the pretty producer admitted they are dating.

Tracey tells People magazine, "(We've been dating) for about a month and a half.

"Yes (we're happy), very happy. We're having fun."

Tracey and Kenneth Edmonds split in October 2005 after 13 years of marriage and two children.

Murphy Baffled by Richards Backlash

Eddie Murphy is puzzled by the backlash aimed at Michael Richards following his racist tirade during a stand-up routine in a Los Angeles club because what is said onstage should stay onstage.

Murphy is refusing to join the African-Americans launching attacks on the Seinfeld star, who stunned an audience at a recent Laugh Factory show by calling two hecklers "n**gers" over and over again.

Instead, the comedian says, "Back in the old days in comedy clubs, you could do anything onstage... I'm not saying what the guy said was cool, but in the old days you would've never saw that on the news."
