Eddie Murphy‘s daughter Angel Iris Murphy shared details of abuse from unemployed film producer Stephen Belafonte against her mother, Melanie “Mel B” Brown.
Mel’s mother Andrea Brown shared letters in which the singer’s daughter Angel allegedly wrote that she is “very frightened” of her stepfather, Stephen Belafonte.
The former Spice Girl finalized her divorce from the film producer in December, reaching an agreement over their shared assets and custody of their six-year-old daughter Madison.
However, Belafonte wants visitation rights to 10-year-old Angel. But Mel and Eddie, who is active in his daughter’s life, don’t want Belafonte to have access to Angel.
Mel’s mom Andrea has now gotten involved, sharing on Twitter on Monday pictures of three handwritten notes that she claims were written by Angel, alongside the caption, “A cry 4 help” followed by the heartbroken emoji.
via WENN.com — The first message from Angel reads: “Im very frightened of Stephen. When he is mad its terrifying. I never want to see him ever again it’d be like re-living a horrible part of my life.”
The next part of the letter details a fight between Stephen and Mel, who were married for almost 10 years, where he allegedly hit her hand so hard her nail came off.
“I dont want to see the man that caused so much damage to my mother leading to her living through a nightmare,”, while the second letter reads: “I got an amazing relation ship [sic] with my sisters, brothers, grandma and my father eddie murphy!”
In the last letter, which is signed off ‘Angel’, the writer claims Stephen was very strict, wouldn’t let her have a dog or eat at the dining table, and was always preoccupied with his computer.
“Im happy I dont see him any more! Now I live in a beautiful house,” it continues. “I have no more fear! I love seeing my real dad! and I love seeing my mother happy! Not sad! Please dont make me see him again.”
After sharing the note, Andrea wrote to a Twitter user, “Children r also victims and should b heard I won’t see another grandchild of mine suffer like Phoenix did,” referring to Mel’s eldest daughter with her first husband, dancer Jimmy Gulzar, who allegedly suffered abuse at the hands of Belafonte.
Stephen has previously denied allegations of abuse.

There’s no publicity in that one Angel will one day have her say and Phoenix then hopefully he will disappear https://t.co/3ZzYqDe6nT
