The filing noted that Mel “owes significant taxes to the UK and US tax authorities for which she makes monthly payments in varying amounts.”

In his income and expense declaration, Mel’s ex Stephen said he pulled in around $21k per month. While that was his average income, Stephen said he “lost his management job on October 1, 2022, and has not had any income.” He told the court he’s living off savings and support.

In addition, he pays $5k per month to his former lawyer who he owes $498k.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Mel and Stephen are fighting over custody of their 11-year-old child. Madison currently lives with Stephen in Los Angeles. The minor travels to the UK to visit Mel throughout the year.

Mel had to move back to the UK after her work visa expired in 2019. Stephen recently asked the court for permission to move from California to Florida.

In response, Mel demanded Madison move to the UK and live with her. She claimed to have serious concerns over Stephen’s ability to parent.

A judge has yet to rule.
