Scary's Former Hubby is Not So Nice Spice

12/26/2007 5:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that a custody battle has erupted between Mel B and her former husband over their almost 9-year-old daughter, Phoenix, and whether mom can take her on the road. Can't take my baby, Spice!

We're told dancer Jimmy Gulzar refused to alter his visitation schedule with the working mom -- and custodial parent -- Scary Spice aka Melanie Brown, while she's on tour with the Spice Girls. Now TMZ has obtained documents supporting Brown's desire to take Phoenix on the road with her. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Robert Schnider has ordered that little Phoenix can go on the road with her mom as she tours the world, thus denying Gulzar's attempt to block her from traveling. Your mum's your best friend!

Mel, who is represented by powerhouse attorney Goldie Schon, still maintains sole legal and physical custody of Phoenix, and Gulzar will have scheduled visitation over the next few months and on the little girl's birthday.

Ya - no doubt this guy just tried to take this action just to force her to pay him money for the privilege of continuing her sole custody of their kid. Where was he before? And why does she have sole legal and physical custody.

But wow does she pick bad men! First this dude and then Eddie (that's not my baby) Murphy. Hope she has better luck with the new husband!

Jimmy Is Alright    

I KNOW Jimmy personally and he is a wonderful guy who left the UK and everything he was familiar with so he could live in the states near his daughter. Mel has and continues to use their child as a pawn. Mel has the money to pay for lawyers who will get her full custody whether or not she deserved it. She kidnapped their child to pursue a career in the states despite the fact that this would take her child away from her father. Jimmy followed so he could be here in the states even tho it means him working in retail and under the table for pennies since he is an illegal immigrant. He's living in poverty because he's not being supported by Mel or able to work legally in his trade without a green card. Now she wants to take their child on the road with her even though he'd be happy to give her a stable home environment for the next few months while she's on tour. A tour is no place for a child, but of course no one is willing to even consider that cos Mel has the money.

She Never Learns    

Taking an 8-year old to tour around the world witha band is the best environment that I can think of. I will put "Taking 8-year olds on the road for 4 months" as one chapter in my new cant-miss "parenting book"

I am sure that with mommy close-by, Scary Jr. will use the protection that my baby Jamie-Lynn didnt think was required.

Jizy and MIKE, you are both idiots. Let's hope neither of you ever have children. I'd hate for my child to brought up in a world with your offspring. I'm sure with your attitudes, noone in their right mind would be willing to have sex with either of you anyway.

Pulling her daughter out of school for months and months just to go on tour with her is completely irresponsible and clearly she cares more about herself and her "career" then her children. Nice.
