Former Spice Girl Mel B recently filed court papers to increase her child support payments, citing a significant reduction in her income. In response, Eddie Murphy, the father of Mel B’s daughter, has been ordered to pay $61,000 per month in child support.

This ruling comes after a previous agreement in which Murphy was paying $44,000 monthly. However, with Mel B’s income experiencing a significant downturn, she sought to modify the child support payments.

The court documents revealed that Mel B’s lawyers argued for the modification, stating, “Until recently, Melanie has been fortunate in her career to sustain a comfortable lifestyle for herself and Angel.

Unfortunately, Melanie’s income has dramatically reduced, such that she must consider modifying child support for the first time.”

As part of the agreement, Murphy, who is considered an “extraordinarily high earner,” will make the increased payments starting from October of last year until their daughter Angel turns 18. Additionally, he has agreed to cover Mel B’s legal fees.

It is worth noting that Murphy initially denied being Angel’s father when Mel B became pregnant in 2006. However, a paternity test later confirmed his relationship to Angel. Despite their rocky beginnings, Murphy now plays an active role in his daughter’s life.

In her memoir, ‘Brutally Honest’, Mel B discussed their past relationship and subsequent split. She described Murphy as the love of her life but revealed that she was “spectacularly dumped” after leaving him for a few days to contemplate their future together.

Murphy’s response to her decision was dismissive, leaving Mel B feeling humiliated and confused. Despite the heartbreak, there has been healing since then.

Mel B explained that Murphy and his mother, Lillian, are now actively involved in Angel’s life. She expressed gratitude for the joy it brings her to see her daughter getting to know the man who reminds her so much of him.

Mel B also opened up about her financial struggles following her messy split from Stephen Belafonte in 2017. She revealed that despite earning more than £80 million ($158 million) throughout her career, she walked away from her second marriage with only US$936 ($1667) in her bank account. These financial difficulties likely contributed to her need for increased child support from Murphy.

Overall, this recent development in the ongoing child support case between Eddie Murphy and Mel B highlights the importance of ensuring the well-being of their daughter. Regardless of their past, it is clear that both parents are now committed to providing the best possible life for Angel.
