‘Love & Marriage: Huntsville’ Star Martell Holt Wants Full Custody of Children Amid Divorce

Martell Holt and Melody Holt are preparing to battle over custody.

Things are only getting worse between “Love & Marriage: Huntsville” stars Melody Holt and Martell Holt. They attempted to get past Martell’s infidelity. And they agreed to work on things after Melody found out she was pregnant with baby number four. So when fans of the show criticized her choice on social media, Melody stood firm. And she couldn’t understand why people were critical of her wanting to work on her marriage.

But she filed for divorce last year.

After Martell threw jabs her way on Instagram and came for her parenting, she clapped back in a video. She accused Martell of having a baby on the way. While she didn’t name who he’s allegedly having a baby with, some people have speculated that he may have gotten Arionne Curry pregnant. Arionne is reportedly the woman he had a five-year affair with.

On another midseason preview of LAMH, Martell and Melody discuss their impending divorce. And both make it clear that they are ready for things to officially be over.

Later on in the trailer, Martell reveals that he wants a custody battle, too.

He says, “I’m going for full custody.” Melody has also stated she was considering seeking full custody in a previous trailer.

    He wants full custody why? He’s the the one that stepped out on his wife and children. They should just do joint physical custody. but I can tell you this new woman is not going to want to deal with 4 kids all the time. Martell is a joke!

      I’ll bet money if she agreed to give him full custody he’d change his mind, he doesn’t want full custody probably not even partial he just wants to hurt her. Give him custody what’s he going to do, they’re his kids too, let him take care of them completely, He won’t have any girlfriends or time for any. Life as he knows it will be over. LMAO

    Joint custody is best. No need to be petty.

    They need to sit down somewhere. It’s not cool to use your children to hurt your ex because the marriage is ending.

    This dude is something else. You cheat on your wife multiple times with your mistress, blame her for your cheating & then file for full custody of your kids?? The audacity of some folks just blows my mind🙄

    First Event: TUG O’ WAR(with the children in the middle)
    I’m not going to speak on MATURE here because both of them lack it. Mature parents usually will think about their children and their feelings. Mature parents will sit with their children and explain to them why they’re no longer together and its not their fault. The children have to adjust more than the parents do. Are Melody and Martell ready for the backlash? Oh there will be some.Their business is on tv and the internet so they need to get ready.

      For real! And the children are the ones that will end up being hurt in the end. I truly hope that one of them at least is taking their children to therapy, because they’re gonna need it after what’s about to happen.

    Shame on OWN network to keep them up there. This matter should be settled off the air and if you ask me neither of them need the children. They rather stay on tv to stay relevant instead of walking away like adults.

    I was rooting for them. Martell got a lot of growing up to do, I think they got married to young. He wants to sow his oats. Dr. Heavenly’s interview, he sounded like the world owed him something for doing what a father supposed to do. Inflated ego, indeed. Don’t know what makes him think that Melody will still want him in 2 or 3 yrs. He will miss life with her, she’s the whole meal but also a handful. Just sayin!!!

      I agree, watched that session with Martell and thought “gosh, he needs to grow UP!” Good luck to his idea of full custody…if he left Melody because she wasn’t paying enough attention to him, then he’ll leave the GF when she’s caring for his 4 and their one. He’s a self centered fool.

    Martell is the typical insecure male not man. He cheats to stroke his ego. He never takes responsibility for his part in the breakdown in the marriage he rather blame Melody. They have 4 small children that he helped bring into this world plus they both work how much free time do either of them have. How typical of him to blame Melody for him cheating ummmm no you cheated because you wanted to but you are not man enough to say you F**ked up and move on. No you have to keep getting on social media to show how small you are. And the side chick that he called a peasant needs to move on too and stop accepting his disrespect and bad behavior. People only do what you let them do and as long as you keep giving this insecure loser a pass he will continue to be the A** that he is.

    I have no sympathy for the side (chickapea)! Martell, obviously, doesn’t have too much control over her mouth. She’s on YouTube blasting him, at least she was a while ago. She has him where she wants him for now. Ain’t no way she wants to be a mama to his 4 kids, not gonna happen! He’ll begin to BLAME her for losing Mel & his family. Won’t be a pretty sight, either. Just watch, he had it all. Such a darn fool! Done!!
