Stephen had previously failed to win temporary rights over Angel, who was born three months before he married Mel back in 2007.
Back in April, he had regained visitation rights to daughter Madison - but was told he will only be allowed to see her with heavy supervision.
It's believed Shrek actor Eddie could find himself involved with Mel and Stephen's divorce battle, as a Los Angeles judge ruled Stephen could apply for access to Angel.
Los Angeles Superior Court's Judge Lawrence Riff granted the film producer's request to submit papers allowing him to apply for visitation in the future. Let me just observe that of paramount concern is the best interests of this minor, Angel.To define our relationship like that would misconstrue it; we were simpatico. I’d say it was bad experiences throughout school which probably made me much more accepting.Our father-daughter relationship was more like a typical father-son relationship. I was also a dancer and heavily involved in the performing arts which attracts a wide variety of characters.The revelation came as Mel's fellow judge Howie Mandel had teased her, telling the act: 'I was trying to listen to you, but Mel kept smacking me.'She said: "Do they know that I am fully single? ' He then further teased her by saying: 'If you guys were a dating app she would swipe you all to the right.'As a blushing Mel pretended to attack Howie, he insisted: 'That's what you told me,' before she finally admitted: 'And yes…I am so happy to be single right now.' While Stephen had appeared to respond amicably in the latest footage, a spokesperson accompanying the producer seemed to hit out at Mel, as they referenced her previous claims that Belafonte had tormented her with years of physical and mental abuse - something which he has vehemently denied and labelled as a 'smear campaign'.
