Los Angeles: Actor Eddie Murphy gets a clean chit after a comedian, who shares his last name, dropped a defamation lawsuit against the star.
Brando Murphy had filed a USD 50 million lawsuit against "The Nutty Professor" actor, accusing him of jeopardising his stand-up career by criticising his act. He also alleged members of the star's entourage had threatened him, reports contactmusic.com.
