Mel B is planning to return to the UK. The British is asking a court permission to take her 8-year-old daughter with ex Stephen Belafonte, according to documents in the hands of The Blast.

“If we are forced to stay in the United States, I cannot provide the standard of living Madison is used to”

In the paperwork, Mel says she has been unable to find work in the US since her contract with America’s Got Talent was broken a year ago. She says she has no American income for a year, while in England she has many job opportunities since her tour with the Spice Girls.

The move would mean an adjustment to the guardianship arrangement she met with Stephen. He currently sees daughter Madison every Wednesday and every weekend. But according to Mel there is no other option. “If we are forced to stay in the United States, I cannot provide the standard of living that Madison is accustomed to,” said the singer, who said in Los Angeles that he would pay $ 88,000 a year for rent alone.

In addition to Madison, the Spice Girl has two daughters. She has full custody of Angel, 12, who she shares with Eddie Murphy. It is not clear whether the 20-year-old Phoenix, from her marriage to Dutchman Jimmy Gulzar, would also move.
