The former spice girl, known as Mel B, filed papers asking for additional financial support for their daughter, Angel Brown.

An inside source reported to People Magazine that “They all have a very good relationship,” the insider reveals. “He always makes sure to get them involved with Angel. She had something at her school recently and a number of her siblings turned out to support her. She texts Eddie and is on the phone with him all the time. She loves her dad.”
