Just when we thought Mel B and Stephen Belafonte’s divorce drama would give material for all future seasons of the heinous Dynasty reboot, those two take a turn for the mature.
TMZ says the domestic violence portion of the divorce is done, with Mel withdrawing her domestic violence restraining order against Stephen. That opens a window for him to see their six-year-old daughter Madison. They’ve also apparently settled some parts of how they’re dividing up the property, and I really hope one of the biggest snafus was who got to keep the vault of Spice World VHS tapes and cheetah-print rompers.
The fact that these two are suddenly settling has me wondering what kind of horse tranquilizers they both took before heading to the divorce lawyer’s office. Stephen was allegedly physically abusive to Mel. Mel also accused him of knocking up the nanny, Lorraine Gilles, and then forcing her to get an abortion on Mel’s dime! Mel also accused Stephen and the nanny of blackmailing her with threats to release videos of her in threesomes with random women he made her shag with him. The nanny then sued Mel for defamation.
TMZ says there has been no resolution with Lorraine but that they are close to finding one. Lorraine was previously threatened with deportation, and she was alleged to be in a sham marriage to stay in the country. Somehow, I think the only resolution will be Mel temporarily becoming a (shudder) Trump supporter and chanting “Build the wall!” anytime Lorraine shows up to give a deposition to the legal team.
