Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds Split


Funnyman Eddie Murphy and his bride have SPLIT - days after it was revealed their Pacific isle wedding three weeks ago was not legal anyway.

The Shrek star and stunning film producer Tracey Edmonds, 40, last night confessed their whirlwind “marriage” had hit the buffers following their return to Los Angeles.

The break-up comes after the couple tied the knot in a romantic New Year’s Day beach ceremony on a private island off Bora Bora in the South Pacific.

It later emerged they should have lived there a month to make the marriage legal under Polynesian law.

Last night a “proper” ceremony they had been planning in Tinseltown was called off - leaving multi-millionaire Murphy, 46, in paradise over his lucky escape.

Lawyers for the star - father of SPICE GIRL MEL B’s baby daughter ANGEL IRIS - were double-checking with officials on the island that he was still single.

Only couples who wed in the town hall in front of the mayor are exempt from the 30-day residency rule.

Murphy, who split from his first wife in 2006 after 13 years, refused to comment.
