Melanie Brown’s daughter has filed a battery police report against her father after he allegedly refused to let her leave his Los Angeles home.
The Spice Girls star’s eldest daughter Phoenix Chi filed a complaint against her father Jimmy Gulzar on 10 October, claiming he grabbed her arm when she tried to leave.

The 12 year old’s stepfather Stephen Belafonte arrived at Gulzar’s home to collect Pheonix and called police to the property when the former dancer refused to let the youngster leave, according to Britain’s Daily Mirror, which has obtained a copy of the police report.

Brown and Gulzar wed in 1998 after meeting while he was a backing dancer on the Spice Girls’ world tour.

They divorced after a year and the singer was granted custody of Phoenix.
