Mel B’s Ex Is Now Fighting For Visitation Rights To See Their Three Kids!

UGH! We hate it when children are involved…

As we reported, earlier this month, Mel B was granted a temporary restraining order against ex Stephen Belafonte after he allegedly physically abused her.

Not only is the Spice Girls singer planning to file a permanent restraining order, she wants sole custody of their three children: Madison (5), Phoenix (18, from Mel’s previous marriage), and Angel (10, whose biological father is Eddie Murphy).

Fast forward to Thursday, the film producer wants to amend the court order so he can receive visitation rights.

According to Belafonte, Madison and Angel miss him dearly and haven’t seen him in three weeks. Angel even sent him text messages such as “Hello daddy… I love you… Daddy??,” and “Daddy Where are you.” Because of the restraining order, he is unable to reply.

The Thank You For Smoking associate producer says he is an extremely involved parent, who cooks, reads, plays games, and cuddles with the children.

He even claims Angel hasn’t seen her biological father since birth and believes Stephen is her real dad.

According to legal docs, the 41-year-old hopes to assert his right as a stepfather in order to see and spend time with them.

Whatever happens, we just hope the court acts in the best interest of the kids!
