What Happened When He Called Eddie Murphy For Help

He also revealed that years ago he’d heard about Stephen -a convicted felon- having guns around the home and being abusive towards Mel, while exposing the children to violent behavior. He says he reported the incident to authorities; called her sister and mother about it; and out of desperation to get his daughter out of harm’s way, he says he eventually called Eddie Murphy. He did so with the hopes that Eddie would be able to take more actions to get the kids to safety, being that Eddie’s daughter, Angel Iris, was living in that unstable environment as well:

‘About seven years ago I reported this gun. I reported it and I even called Eddie Murphy as his child was there in the house as well, but nobody reacted, Jimmy revealed to Gulzar.

When asked to clarify whether or not Eddie was unwilling to help, Jimmy simply repeated his prior sentiment.

This Is Not The First Time Mel B’s Ex Has Fought For Daughter

According to Jimmy, the tension over their daughter has been an ongoing fight for Jimmy ever since he and Mel divorced in 2000. He’s from the UK, as is Mel B. and he revealed to The Sun that when Mel won sole custody of their daughter in the divorce and moved to the U.S. with her, he packed up and followed them to be near their child. He was living in the U.S. as an illegal immigrant at that time because he wasn’t yet granted his legal U.S. citizenship. But he could not stand the thought of living so far away from Phoenix, so he did what he had to do. He says that once he arrived here in the U.S., he was homeless, but never told his daughter that:

Via The Sun: I had times I wanted to give up. Then Phoenix would call. She doesn’t know I was homeless to this day or that I was illegal, revealed Jimmy.

He Was Threatened By Mel B.’s Husband?

Jimmy also stated that he and Stephen Belafonte had a run-in in front of his daughter, Phoenix, a while back:

“Stephen stepped out. I was like, ‘I’m not scared of you, you might be bigger than me and beat me up but so what?’ He came in front of me, I stayed calm, Jimmy recalled. He just threatened me. All I know is I’m not going to fight in front of my child.”

It sounds like Jimmy Gulzar’s hands are tied because Mel B. has sole custody of their daughter and he apparently has not had the proper means to legally fight for otherwise in the court system. That has to be a horrifying feeling to not be able to just remove your child from a suspected dangerous environment, but we wish them all the best.

Right now, the situation surrounding Mel B., her exes, and her children is pretty jacked up. Hopefully everything gets sorted out soon especially for the sake of those children.
