Martell Holt explains his side of the story.

Earlier in the week, Melody Holt spoke out to her fans about the latest in her court battle with Martell Holt. In her video, Melody proclaimed the trial hasn’t started. And Martell is delaying things because he hasn’t been turning in the required documentation to move forward. Melody spoke out to clear up rumors that she defeated Martell in court.

Well, Martell decided to speak out about the case. While Melody spent time with the kids in Nashville, Martell hopped on Instagram Live. 

While confirming the case is delayed, he denied Melody’s explanation. Martell explained his attorney’s parent passed away which caused an almost three-week delay in paperwork being filed with the court. However, Melody alleged that Martell has failed to submit documentation on multiple instances.

He then accused Melody of having 23 different babysitters and doubled down on not having Marcus Minnifield and his husband watch their kids.

Melody Holt unleashes on Martell Holt.

Well, Melody quickly caught wind of this post, and in a series of posts to Facebook and Instagram, she fired off in response. She first let bloggers and YouTubers know she’s ready to fly a few in for an exclusive sit-down to explain everything regarding her and Martell. Melody then talked about the alleged $17,000 Martell took from their joint account during their divorce.

Later in the response, she calls out Martell for the premise of the custody battle. Not only did Melody say the kids are with her most of the time, but Martell also didn’t attend court-ordered therapy. She then accused Martell of having his utilities cut off.

Next, Melody brings up how Martell’s uncles watched their kids since the divorce and she called Martell a homophobe.

Mannnn… This joker been so homophobic for the longest and I ain’t said nothing about it. Nada.

She then called Martell a cheater, manipulator, liar, narcissist, and criminal.

Melody Hold had words for Marsau Scott.

Lastly, Melody had words for her LAMH co-star Marsau Scott. Marsau left a comment on social media regarding Martell’s video about the case.

If friends in ya inner circle is sitting in front of me, smiling in my face, eating at my table, vacationing with me while paying for car repairs & Valentine’s Day flowers for, and hanging with my then husband and one of his “side” chicks MULTIPLE times, then I don’t need it. You think we forgot? I sure didn’t. You should’ve sat this one out.

Sit alllll the way down, sir. Because the way the Scorpio is out right now… TUH.

I mean… if all the years you were in the inner circle didn’t help…well

Cause ain’t no way I’m kicking it with my married friend’s “side” side nor woman. NOPE! And I call the wife and the kids “family”too.. Nah y’all big FAKE.

And ppl be wondering why I removed myself.

Melody then thanked the person who sent in a screenshot of Marsau reacting to Martell’s recent comments. Marsau said the following in the post:

This is what happens when your “friends” aren’t in your inner circle.

As for Martell, he continues to say that he doesn’t want men watching the children. He believes this is a form of protection and he believes women are “safer” babysitters. However, Melody’s response is that Martell has his uncles babysit.

  1. Melody needs to not respond to Martell. He won’t win this custody battle anyway. She also needs to get a mediator so she’ll never have direct communication with Martell again. It’s what Ciara had to do. Time for Melody to plan her exit from the show. None of this is good for her mental health. That whole cast is full of Martell’s friends anyway. Let them have the show.

    1. As a woman mother and in the public eyes I feel Melody has done an outstanding job of being true to herself. In return she is able to deal with what Satan is the one at her and keeping her kids best interest first. I agree with her it is time to “shut it down” when it starts affecting your children. She is 100% on point. I’d love to be her spades partner, play the trump lady… Game Over.

    2. Martell will do anything to make her miserable,because he’s a loser, she should not respond and let her Lawyer deal with his nonsense, because any Judge with a brain wouldn’t give custody to such an immature narcissist excuse of a real man. God deals with fools

    1. It is unfortunate that this toxic drama continues to be played out on social media 🙄, I mean to the point that we have to read the transcript 🤔? Really??? It’s getting to be monotmous ( how long has it been? wow!) and the children are the key persons that continue to be impacted. How long have we been hearing every little detail🙄??? Please! Poor children. Take some pointers please from some other wise celebrities who have chosen not to air out their dirty laundry publicly and their children being dragged through the mud along with these shenanigans,only to be reminded of it now and later. Think about your children please! I am surprised the judge hasn’t issued a gag order at this point😥.

  2. He’s happy she responded. The day Melody no longer allows Martell to upset her, he’ll have a nervous breakdown. Narcissists crave control, chaos, and attention. You have to completely remove them from your life. The mediator suggestion is actually a great idea, Queen. And the mediator needs to be a court ordered, neutral party who has no tie to either.

  3. They should both SHUT UP! What’s done is in the past. MOVE ON. The only people you are hurting are the FIVE children.

    1. Tell Martell to, he always starts and end up looking like a dam fool. You can only come at someone for so long…I am surprised it took her this long. Martell is a demon

  4. Mel jus use all that energy in the court room wit him… Continue to give ur kids the love, attention they deserve… Evil never wins no matter which person is the evil one… Its crazy how ppl b out here cheatin, lyin, and leave u but the moment that mess they left u for turn out to b trash now its a problem.. Ur the problem?? U did this? U did that? True narcissist behavior.. Mel u got this!! Its gon b all good!!

  5. If any of Martell’s friends honestly loved and cared for him they would get him some mental and Spiritual help. He needs a Man or Woman of God that is filled with the Holy Ghost to Pray and lay hands on him and cast those demons out of him. He needs to repent and ask God to forgive him and ask Mel to forgive him too for lying to her all those years. He’s pitiful.

  6. They both deserve just what they’re getting. Have we forgotten how the both of them treated the other cast members? They were a team of messiness! I have one word for them. KARMA!!!

  7. Everybody isn’t scared to leave a bad relationship, clap back when lied on, and be talked about negatively. Melody is built for this because she’s great. This is small potatoes. Melody is not scared of this man. And she’s not losing because he’s telling lies as usual. She’s winning and that’s the real reason people including Martell have a problem with her. Melody is the breakout star of LAMH, left a bad marriage, and became wealthier on her own. If that’s karma, sign me right on up. A side chick couldn’t break her. Jealous cast members couldn’t break her. A toxic ex couldn’t break her. Internet haters couldn’t break her. I am extremely happy and proud to see a black woman not bow down to a toxic man the rest of the cast is too scared of to check. Team Melody always. Martell will have a complete mental breakdown when she remarries. Oh and that’s coming. Get em Melody. FYI, if you don’t have haters, you’re not successful enough.

  8. At the end of the day Martell is scared, he has nothing or nobody. You stepped out your marriage thinking the grass was greener on the other side, got out there and found out it was astro turf. God don’t like ugly, you reap what you sow…#TeamMel

  9. Lord knows that Martell Holt is a piece of work. Claims to be a “good person who doesn’t lose friends”. His track record we’ve seen as a married man and father of four indicates, he is as we say down south a “p-ss poor excuse for a man”. Cut your losses Mel. Keep his contact with those precious babies to as little as possible. He has nothing positive to offer them. REMEMBER: A narcissist will never co-parent with you. He will counter-parent and cause more harm than help.
