After a messy and embarrassing paternity battle with former girlfriend Melanie Brown in 2006, Murphy took claims to his fatherhood very seriously. That's why the actor sued "Brando Murphy," a 20-something stand-up comedian who claims to be his son. While Brando's outrageous claims seem clearly meant to provoke (and promote his own career), Murphy wasn't laughing. Brando ended up dropping the hefty lawsuit in 2014.
