MEL B may have had some financial success last year but 2020 has seen her struggle and as a result, shes asking Eddie Murphy to pay more child support for daughter Angel.
The bickering duo who share daughter Angel, are back in the US courts after Mel’s lawyer said her income had “dramatically reduced”, in a move set to reignite their fiery disputes.
A previous deal agreed in 2009 gave Mel sole custody after Eddie was ordered to pay £21,000 per month plus additional health insurance and education costs.
In new court documents, the star claims she has made “numerous efforts to resolve this case without court intervention without any success,” and has now asked for a hearing in January.
Her lawyers explained, “Eddie and Melanie have both established careers in the entertainment industry. Unfortunately, Melanie’s income has dramatically reduced, such that she must consider modifying child support for the first time.” Accounting figures previously showed the band members made around £3.2million each from last year’s bumper run of stadium shows.
Mel had been able to revive a relationship with Eddie after years of acrimony, and the pair were thought to be back on good terms.
She has since moved back to the UK, where she is living in her native Leeds with her mum, Andrea, and plans to rebuild her life.
