Eddie Murphy attacks young comedian claiming to be his son

Popular Hollywood comic actor, Eddie Murphy is on the attack against a young comedian, Brando Murphy who is basically passing himself off as Eddie's son.

Report has it that Eddie’s lawyer, Marty Singer fired off several threatening letters to Brando Murphy, claiming the comedian has told anyone who will listen that he’s Eddie’s son. In one letter, the lawyer threatens to sue him for millions if he doesn’t back off.

According to the letters, these are some of the things Brando has done:

-- Changed his last name to Murphy

-- Performing with Richard Pryor's son, Mason, in the "Sons of Comedy" tour.

-- Showing up at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Eddie frequents and screaming, "My father won't talk to me!"

However, Brando is not on bit shaken by the letter as he has reportedly sent his own threatening letter to Eddie, insisting he's never presented himself as Eddie's son and calling his accusations "vile, base, contemptible, miserable, wretched and loathsome," adding that he'll sue Eddie for defamation if he continues what he calls a campaign of intimidation.
