Mel B wants ex husband Stephen Belafonte to stay away from her kids.
The Spice Girls alum is once again facing off against her former flame in an attempt to stop Belafonte from spending time with one of his (now ex) step daughters. Oof.
In legal documents from March 1, the British songstress accused Stephen of showing her three daughters — Phoenix (19), Angel (10), and Madison (6) — “videos of ISIS beheading individuals.” How awful.
In case you forgot, the 42-year-old has been petitioning for visitation rights to spend more time with his daughter from his relationship with the X Factor judge, as well as Mel’s daughter with Eddie Murphy. It’s said that since Stephen has been in Angel’s life since she was a newborn, he feels more like a dad than a stepdad.
As the Wannabe singer has accused the El Lay native of abuse, it’s not surprising that she’s trying to keep her brood away from him. On the alleged ISIS video viewings, the America’s Got Talent personality stated:
“When I was not present, Stephen thought it was funny or educational (I still do not know) to play videos of ISIS beheading individuals… This was entirely inappropriate for such young girls, who do not understand what is happening in the videos. Angel has repeatedly told me about these videos and that she was scared and frightened that Stephen would expose her to such gruesome images.”
Mel’s oldest also confirmed the inappropriate behavior, and revealed the incident happened during her 16th birthday trip with friends. In regards to the incident, Phoenix shared:
“He got us all to watch men being beheaded with chainsaws by ISIS, as we were in the kitchen and he was cooking.”
Ugh. The 19-year-old issued additional warnings about Stephen as she dished that he’d taunt her by eating the packed lunch made by her mother and would exhibit “cruel” behavior towards her late English Labrador, Lord. She added:
“I never bonded with Stephen because he would call me names such as: ├óΓé¼╦£retarded’ and ├óΓé¼╦£stupid.’ He would do things which upset me… He would be very aggressive with Angel and Maddie if they broke the ├óΓé¼╦£rules,’ like talking when he was on the phone. He would just yell really up close to them.”
Intense stuff. Mel hopes the court will block Belafonte from having any visitation with her 10-year-old.
To make matters worse, the film producer has attempted to reach out to Angel via Madison. Allegedly, Stephen gave his daughter Madison a teddy bear to give to Angel, which had a note inside with his phone number on it.
Mel is perplexed by his desire to see Angel as she claimed he often “confused Angel for Madison” and used to regularly misidentify the likes and dislikes of each child. In short: he was no Father Of The Year.
