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.
Mel B’s estranged husband Stephen Belafonte has proven he’s able to check off all the boxes on the crappy husband list. He’s the allegedly abusive kind, the kind who plays the victim, the kind that will blackmail you and the kind who wants someone else to foot the bill. Now we know he’s also the type of husband to accuse you of sleeping with one of your co-workers.
The messiest situation to happen regarding a Spice Girl since Nicola went into labor at the club continues. Mel B now has two restraining orders. One is against her estranged husband and alleged abuser Stephen Belafonte, and TMZ says she now has one against her ex-nanny Lorraine Gilles.
Shortly after Mel B filed for divorce from Stephen Belafonte, a ton of dark allegations were made against him. The information (or the smear campaign, if you’re Stephen Belafonte) makes it sound like Mel B’s marriage was a non-stop 10 years-long carousel of not-right. It’s enough to make you wonder how many people sat her down and drew her a little map leading to a divorce lawyer’s office. As it turns out, one of the people keeping it real with Mel B was her fellow America’s Got Talent and X Factor judge Simon Cowell.
A little over two weeks ago, Mel B filed for divorce from her husband of 10 years Stephen Belafonte. Since then, she got a restraining order against him and accused him of emotionally and physically abusing her for years. Stephen responded by claiming he’s the victim of a smear campaign. Stephen has now responded to her divorce petition and he wants her to pay up.
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.
