Sadly, Martell Holt’s personal life is not as successful as his career. Martell had a five-year affair with another lady that ended his marriage. Throughout the last few years, the Holts have broken up multiple times. Melody and her children moved out of their shared house and into an apartment for six months before deciding to reconnect.
Following the birth of their daughter, the Holts appeared to be on the road to reconciliation once more. In an official YouTube video, the former couple revealed their baby girl to the world. However, this good news didn’t last, and they split up soon after.
