Melanie Brown, aka Mel B, may have to file for bankruptcy if she can't convince a judge to increase her child support from Eddie Murphy.

The Spice Girls singer has reportedly claimed she'll go bankrupt if ordered to pay $500,000 to her ex-husband Stephen Belafonte. She requested an increase in child support from Eddie to offset her increased living expenses due to the Covid outbreak.

Mel B, who is mom to the comedian and actor's 13-year-old daughter Angel Iris Murphy, has asked the court to allow her access to Eddie's financial records.

The 45-year-old English singer (pictured with Belafonte in 2014) was "devastated" when Eddie announced they were no longer a romantic item on a Dutch TV show in 2006.

"I don't know whose child that is until it comes out and has a test," he said about their unborn daughter.

Eddie continually denied Angel was his until a paternity test confirmed he was the father in 2007.

The 59-year-old comic previously agreed to pay Mel $25,000 -a-month in child support, as well as cover Angel's health insurance and her educational costs.

Mel B was ordered by a Los Angeles judge to cover $400,000 in legal fees and $100,000 in accounting fees for her ex-husband following their 2017 divorce.

According to MailOnline, Mel told L.A. Superior Court Judge Mark Juhas she is having financial difficulties.

She wrote: "I will effectively be insolvent and will in all likelihood have to file for bankruptcy. I simply do not have the ability to pay such an exorbitant sum."

She told the court she's been unable to work due to the coronavirus lockdowns.
