Mel B claimed in court papers her lawyers filed this week that her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte is a jealous and violent piece of trash who beat her, forced her to have threesomes and threatened to leak sex tapes of her if she didn’t do what he said. Mel B also said that Stephen got their nanny pregnant and then made the woman get an abortion. A judge granted her a restraining order against him. Mr. Clean’s shady second cousin has responded. The day that a celebrity (or in this case, a celebrity’s husband) admits to abuse allegations is the day a pig flies out of my ass. I’ve got news for flying pigs, you’re not flying out of my ass today.
In a statement to TMZ, Stephen’s lawyer basically said that Scary Spice’s Spice Girl name should really be Liar Spice. Stephen’s reputation is more smeared than the toilet seat in a Port-A-Potty at a music festival, but his lawyer seems to think that Mel B is trying to smear it some more. His lawyer accuses Mel B of spreading lies to cover up things she did during their marriage and to get one up on him in their divorce negotiations. Woe is Stephen is the theme of this statement:
“It’s a shame that Ms. Brown elected not to proceed in a respectful and amicable fashion in this very private matter. In due course, Mr. Belafonte will be filing his response to the outrageous and unfounded allegations made by Ms. Brown, which allegations he vehemently denies.
When the Court determines the truth, it will become clear that this entire charade was nothing more than a smear campaign intended to cover up Ms. Brown’s own conduct during the marriage in light of her current involvement with a family television show, and in an effort to unfairly gain leverage both financially and with respect to custody of the children.
When the degree to which Ms. Brown has gone to create a false depiction of her marriage to Mr. Belafonte is uncovered, real victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse will be understandably offended, angry and upset.
Mr. Belafonte is confident that the truth will come out when he has his day in court at which time he looks forward to being reunited with his children. What matters most to Mr. Belafonte is the safety and well-being of his daughters and step-daughters.”
Who to believe? Who to believe? Scary Spice or a mess who has been convicted of theft and pleaded no contest to beating a girlfriend in 2003? Not only that, but Belafonte isn’t even his last name. It’s Stansbury! Harry, Shari and all of the other Belafontes should sue Stephen Stansbury for bringing shame upon their last name! Some people really do think that Stephen Belafonte is Harry’s son. I was on the phone with my mom last night as she was watching Access Hollywood, or one of those shows, and she said to me, “I didn’t know that Harry Belafonte’s son married a Spice Girl.” If I had 65 hours to spare to try to teach my mom how tweet, I’d make her go on Twitter to apologize to @harrybelafonte for that mistake.
Here’s Mel B visiting her lawyer in L.A. today.
