Mel B Says Belafonte Tried to Ruin Eddie Murphy’s Relationship with Daughter


Mel B is accusing her ex, Stephen Belafonte, of trying to sabotage a reconnection between Eddie Murphy and his biological daughter, but she says despite his attempts, Eddie and their daughter have developed a “flourishing relationship.”

According to documents obtained by The Blast, Mel B claims during her marriage to Belafonte, he wanted her “to have nothing to do with” Murphy, who is the father of Mel’s 10-year-old daughter Angel.

She says prior to filing for divorce from Belafonte last year, she contacted Murphy to set up a meeting between him and Angel, but while she was sleeping, Belafonte took her phone and began sending messages to Murphy’s assistant.  She claims to not know what the messages said, but “As a result of Stephen’s actions, Angel’s father canceled the visitation and did not want to have any interactions with Stephen.”  Mel says “to this day,” Murphy wants nothing to do with him.

She says the “childish action only sought to delay Angel’s unification with her biological father.”

Mel claims that despite his attempts, Angel and Murphy have reconnected.  She says during their first visit, “Eddie gave her the biggest hug and repeatedly told her how much he missed her and how much he loves her.”

The Spice Girl also states Murphy bought Angel a cellphone to stay in contact with her, and bought her two french bulldog puppies for her birthday.  She named one of them Axel, after Murphy’s “Beverly Hills Cop” character, Axel Foley.

Mel says that Eddie wanted Angel to attend the same school as his other children, so that all his kids receive the same level of education.  She says Angel is thriving in the new school, and her demeanor has changed completely since separating from Belafonte.

The documents are being filed as part of Mel’s request to deny Belafonte visitation with Angel.  He’s been gunning for more time with the child, but she’s fighting the motion.  As we previously reported, she also accused Belafonte of showing their children gruesome videos of “ISIS beheadings.”
