It said: “Until recently, Melanie has been fortunate in her career to sustain a comfortable lifestyle for herself and Angel. Unfortunately, Melanie’s income has dramatically reduced, such that she must consider modifying child support for the first time.”

Mel B welcomed her daughter Angel on her 46th birthday, in the year 2007.

According to the sources the comedian was not happy at the birth of his daughter much because of her mother who might tricked him into getting her pregnant.
