Move over Russell Wilson! There’s another caring stepdad in town and his name is Stephen Belafonte.
Estranged hubby to Mel B, Stephen Belafonte, is seemingly taking his step dad duties very seriously, so much so that he wants the legal right to maintain a relationship with Mel and Eddie Murphy’s daughter, 10-year-old Angel.
According to TMZ, Belafonte’s lawyer wrote to Mel B’s attorney on March 31 to stake his claim.
“Stephen would like to schedule a meeting as soon as possible to discuss the resolution of temporary issues including his ability to see Madison and Angel, whom we would appreciate continuing to have contact with.”
Belafonte believes Eddie has been a marginal presence in Angel’s life and that he’s been the child’s father from birth – marrying Mel 2 months after she was born.
Sources say Mel B will strongly oppose Belafonte’s move to continue seeing Angel.
EFB Fam what do you think? Should a woman (or a man) withhold visitation from an ex if they were active in the child’s life for a number of years?
