According to documents, obtained by The Blast, the Spice Girl and her estranged husband filed a judgment on certain issues that have been holding up a final settlement in the ongoing divorce.
One of the main issues was custody, and Belafonte had been gunning to get custody of Mel’s 11-year-old daughter, Angel, who she had with Eddie Murphy.
The documents now state that an agreement has been made to keep Mel B 200 yards away from Stephen and his daughter from a previous relationship, Giselle, as well as keep him 200 yards away from Mel and Angel.
As for personal property, Mel and Stephen must split the gym equipment they stored at the marital residence, but she scored her studio equipment. The singer also secured a “video game console labeled Spice Girls,” that she paid Belafonte $2,500 to keep.
It’s unclear if the game in question is the 1998, “Spice World,” but with the announcement of the reunion tour, the game could become a pricey piece of history.
Mel will pay Belafonte $5,000 per month in child support for the ex-couple’s daughter, 7-year-old Madison. The star will also pay Belafonte $350,000 in attorney’s fees.
As for Madison, both Stephen and Mel will be allowed to FaceTime with her nightly between 7:30 PM and 8:30 PM, depending on whoever does not have custody that night. The custody arrangement with the child remains the same, and the parents have also agreed not to badmouth each other in front of the kid.
The documents were just filed last week, which could mean the couple is close to a final settlement and judgment.
