Mel B has ‘filed court documents’ asking her ex Eddie Murphy to pay more child support.

The 45-year-old had reportedly tried to resolve the issue ‘numerous times without court intervention’ before she filed the documents.

The Spice Girl and actor share 13-year-old daughter Angel.

According to Us Weekly, the court documents read: ‘Eddie and Melanie have both established careers in the entertainment industry. Melanie is a singer, songwriter and television personality. Eddie is a legendary comedian and actor. 

‘Until recently, Melanie has been fortunate in her career to sustain a comfortable lifestyle for herself and Angel.’

It continued: ‘Unfortunately, Melanie’s income has dramatically reduced, such that she must consider modifying child support for the first time.’

Apparently, Mel B’s legal team had tried many times to resolve the issues ‘without any success’.

The document added: ‘Melanie was left with no choice but to file this.’

Scary Spice revealed last year that their relationship, which saw them planning a marriage, became rocky after he questioned the paternity of their unplanned pregnancy.

Mel had said he will always be ‘the love of her life’ in an interview with Piers Morgan’s Life Stories.

She said: ‘We had something special that I’ve never really truly felt with anybody else.

‘I’ve thought I’ve had it, but they’ve lied. His was pure. He is the love of my life. He always will be.

‘He showed me what true love feels like, and for that I have the utmost admiration and respect for him.’
