It seems like a fatherly kind of thing trying to get full custody while mom is away getting help for her issues.
This isn’t your ordinary father.
The C list celebrity is just attempting a money grab and hoping he can turn something temporary into something that gives him a huge monthly check.
Mel B’s Ex-Husband Stephen Belafonte Argues She’s Not Fit to Maintain Custody
Mel B and Stephen Belafonte have come to a temporary agreement after facing off in court.
On Friday morning, the America’s Got Talent judge faced new accusations from her ex-husband who questioned her ability to retain custody of her children.
According to court declarations obtained by TMZ, Stephen submitted a declaration from Russell Updegraff who claims to be responsible for watching two of Mel B’s kids. He argued that they are at serious risk because of Mel B’s drinking problem.
Stephen’s hope was that he could obtain temporary custody of his kids in hopes that Mel B can go to rehab and get clean. – Source
