Mel B Reveals History of Domestic Abuse In Restraining OrderApril 4, 2017
Heartbreaking allegations made in new court documents.
The Spice Girls star has filed a restraining order one month after filing for divorce.
Melanie Brown – better known as Mel B or her Scary Spice alter-ego – has revealed heartbreaking details of a decade of physical and mental abuse in a restraining order application against her estranged husband.
The singer married Stephen Belafonte in 2007 after four months of dating and reportedly separated in December, with Melanie filing for divorce last month. They have one child, a 5-year-old daughter, together.
E! reports that the documents detail several accounts of physical abuse, forced sexual participation and sexual blackmail – amongst other horrifying information – that drove Brown to a failed suicide attempt in 2014.
The documents also reveal that he impregnated their nanny during their marriage.
She recalls physical attacks during high-profile events such as the Spice Girls’ Olympics performance, tapings of The X Factor and Dancing With The Stars.
The marriage has been the subject of infidelity rumors in recent years and Belafonte was criticised by media outlets for his behaviour on Brown’s short-lived reality series “Mel B: It’s A Scary World.”
We send all of our love and strength to Melanie.
