If you would’ve asked me in the early-aughts which Spice Girl would be involved in a stage 10 wreck of a divorce fight, I’d probably guess Posh Spice because of two simple words: Rebecca Loos! But as we all know from the dozens of stories about it, Scary Spice is in the middle of a landfill fire of a divorce fight with Stephen Belafonte. Just in case you choose to fill the memory file in your brain with only happy things (like a cockatoo going on a magical broom ride), let me recap this shit real quick. In court papers, Mel B accused her husband of 10 years of emotionally and physically abusing her for most of their marriage. Mel accused Stephen of knocking up the nanny and then forcing the nanny to get an abortion. Mel also accused Stephen and the nanny of working together to blackmail her. And now the nanny is suing Mel B for all of those accusations. This is like Hand That Rocks The Cradle meets Sleeping With The Enemy meets a telenovela that’d make my abuelita throw holy water at her TV whenever the “puta nanny” and “pendejo husband” came on the screen.
TMZ says that Lorraine Gilles, Mel’s ex nanny, has sued Mel B for defamation because of the shit that was said about her in court declarations. On top of the accusations that Lorraine had an affair with Stephen and got an abortion after getting pregnant, Mel B claimed in declarations that the nanny has sex tapes of her and used them to extort cash out of her. Mel B thought the sex tapes were in a storage locker that was in Lorraine’s name, but when she got a court order to search it, there was nothing in there. Mel B also currently has a temporary restraining against Lorraine.
Lorraine’s lawsuit is filled with pictures and exhibits that she believes will prove that Mel B is spreading ugly lies about her.
Suing someone over claims made in court papers usually isn’t allowed, says TMZ. But in California, a third party, who isn’t directly involved in a family lawsuit, can sue.
As far as I know, there’s not a copy of Lorraine’s lawsuit online yet, so I’m not sure if she’s claiming that everything Mel B said is made of 100% potent unthruthiness or if she’s claiming that not everything is what it seems, like Stephen is holding some shit against her or Stephen fed lies to Mel B, etc…. There’s probably more ugliness coming, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Mel B or Lorraine accuse Stephen of tying their new kittens to the train tracks and letting out a “blehehehehe” after the train comes shooting toward them. I mean, he is a top hat and curly stache away from coming off as a cartoon villain.
