First it was because Tracey Edmonds' kids hated Eddie Murphy and now the reason given for the split is that Tracey Edmonds wanted half of Eddie's money and wouldn't sign a pre-nup. Whatever. The reason they are not together is because someone figured out their wedding wasn't legal. BUT, for the sake of argument, lets suppose that Tracey already blew through her Babyface money and producing money and needed some more to get by, she deserves it.
If anyone has to spend five minutes with Eddie Murphy they deserve to get paid. I don't know how much she wanted or he was willing to pay, but it probably wasn't enough. I think this was actually a perfect situation for Tracey. She really wasn't ready to be with anyone after the whole Babyface fiasco, and this option would allow her some time with the kids, a chance to get a little freaky if she needed it, lots of alone time as Eddie has other friends, and some cash should she need it. Instead, this was a nightmare from the beginning. First there was the Mel B episode, then more Mel B with a little Gloria Allred thrown in. Then you had Mel B with Eddie's ex at lunch, and then all of a sudden Eddie got real quiet and real humble. No more denials or bad mouthing of Mel B after that huh? No matter what Tracey was there.
She was perfectly happy with the arrangement as long as there was not a real marriage, but if it was going to be real, she wanted more money. Eddie didn't want to pay more money, so the deal was done. What I think Tracey should do is make sure she didn't sign any confidentiality agreements and then write a book. Oh yes. A whole book. She should be able to get 200 pages out of the last year or so. Throw in some photos and use big type. People would love it.
