Un­til their sepa­ra­tion, Mel let her daugh­ter, An­gel, be­lieve that Stephen was her bi­o­log­i­cal fa­ther. The 10-year-old’s fa­ther is Ed­die Mur­phy.

Mel put her chil­dren’s safety at risk with her ad­dic­tion to co­caine and al­co­hol. Mel’s drug use has been wit­nessed by the fam­ily’s nanny, the chil­dren and Mel’s ther­a­pist, Dr. Charles So­phy. Mel has taken Antabuse, a drug used to treat al­co­holism by mak­ing you sick as soon as you drink. She’s also taken Viv­it­rol, used to pre­vent re­lapse in opi­oid ad­dicts and al­co­holics.

Stephen de­nies claims of do­mes­tic abuse. He states that he was able to see Madi­son (his 6-year-old daugh­ter with Mel) and An­gel just two days be­fore Mel’s tem­po­rary re­strain­ing or­der re­quest was made. (Mel is also mom to Phoenix, 18, from a pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ship.)

Mel’s tem­po­rary re­strain­ing or­der has pre­vented Stephen from re­spond­ing to text mes­sages from An­gel. He fears it could harm An­gel be­cause Stephen is the only fa­ther she has ever known.
