Mel B’s mother Andrea Brown has posted pictures of a three-page letter, which was reportedly written by Mel’s 10-year-old daughter Angel.
In the midst of Mel’s visitation battle with her ex-husband Stephen Belafonte, Angel allegedly penned a distressing letter in which she says she never wants to see Stephen again.
Andrea Brown posted the images on Twitter, and captioned the post with, “A cry for help.”
In the letter, Angel, whose real dad is Hollywood actor Eddie Murphy, claimed that she saw Stephen physically abuse her mother.

“I’m very frightened of Stephen. When he is mad, it’s terrifying,” the letter reads. “I never want to see him ever again it’d be like reliving a horrible part of my life.”
“The worst part about the times I lived with him is when I’d try to stop the fights and cursing. When I tried he would say ‘oh shut up’, and I would be so scared I wouldn’t say anything else.
“I witnessed a physical fight. I was lying down in my mother’s room ‘sleeping’. I woke up to a fight. I can’t remember what it was about, but I heard Stephen hitting mommy’s hand, it was hard cause I heard it. Mommy said ‘you snapped my nail off’ so it was hard.”
“I attempted to fake sleep cause I didn’t want to interfere and get hurt. I don’t want to see the man that causes so much damage to my mother leading her living through a nightmare.”
In the letter, Angel allegedly claims that Stephen’s daughter Giselle told her that Eddie Murphy was her real dad when she was five.
She added, “Extremely proud of that. I got an amazing relationship with my sisters, brothers, grandma and my father, Eddie Murphy!”
The letter goes on to read, “When I lived with Stephen the rules were the strictest. When we ate food, we had to sit on the floor instead of the dinner table.”
“He said we would make a mess on the table. I wondered of you make a mess on the dinner table you just clean it up? What’s the point of having a dinner table if you don’t eat on it?
“Stephen never came into my room and when I say never is N.E.V.E.R he was to busy on his computer. I’m happy I don’t see him anymore.
“Now I live in a beautiful house and wait when I lived with Stephen I could never get a dog and guess what! Now I have two dogs and a goat!
“We can eat up an actual dinner table and I can see my REAL dad. I create small picture books and I have no more fear. I love seeing my real dad! And I loved seeing my mother happy! Not sad! Please don’t make me see him again – ps Angel.”
The letter comes after Stephen, who has vehemently denied allegations made by Mel of abuse, launched a legal fight for access to his former stepdaughter Angel, after being granted visiting rights to his biological daughter Madison.
It’s not clear whether this letter will be presented to the court in Los Angeles.
Mel is vehemently opposing any contact between Angel and Stephen.
