Mel B is seeking sole custody of their 11-year-old daughter, Madison, who she shares with producer Stephen Belafonte. The Spice Girl says she has “serious concerns” about her ex-husband’s upbringing.
According to the documents received from RadarOnline.comMel B, who is also the mother of 23-year-old Phoenix and 16-year-old Angel, both from previous relationships, is petitioning the court to grant her 80% custody of Madison and 20% of Belafonte’s time. The “Wannabe” singer has revealed that she originally had sole custody of their daughter; However, that all changed when her work visa expired in 2019 and she had to return to the UK.
“Madison’s sisters, Angel and Phoenix, have moved with me to the UK where we live minutes away from almost all of our friends and family. Moving to the UK without Madison was devastating for the girls and I. “The three girls have always had a very close bond and enjoy spending time together,” said Mel B. “Madison would thrive socially, emotionally and academically if she were allowed to live with me and her sisters in the UK during the school year. “
The 47-year-old continued, “I am confident that Madison’s best interest would be if she lived primarily in the UK with her sisters and I.”
In the documentary, Mel B, aka “Scary Spice,” accused Belafonte of “alienating” her daughter from the rest of her family. Additionally, she claims that Belafonte often leaves Madison “in Los Angeles in the care of a revolving door of various third parties.”
The mother-of-three also stated that her ex-husband is not transparent with her about her daughter’s health care and basic living conditions.
“Stephen also lacks transparency regarding Madison’s living arrangements, doctor’s appointments, therapy and schooling. He refuses to become parents with me. For example, he never gave me any information about Madison’s living situation in Los Angeles. I don’t know if Madison has her own bedroom, what her room looks like, or where she lives as he has lied countless times about her living situation.”
Mel B and Stephen Belafonte split in 2017 over abuse allegations.
