Mel B and her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte have been fighting for what seems like years. Last month they started getting ready for court, and more accusations came out. There’s been further nanny drama and alleged witness tampering. Mel B and Stephen squared off in court yesterday in preparation for their trial on November 6th, and Stephen has been accused of even more heinous shit.
Mel B and Stephen’s infamous sex tape collection was dragged into court yesterday. According to The Daily Mail, there are 56 videos that will be presented to the court as evidence, a third of which involve sex, and 90% of them feature Mel B. Mel B claims that Stephen and nanny Lorraine Gilles were using the tapes to blackmail her. According to Mel B’s team, the tapes show something more than just after-work three-ways with the staff.
Mel B can allegedly be seen snorting coke in some of the videos. Her lawyers claim that she isn’t skiing the white mountains because she likes to party. She’s alleging that Stephen kept her drugged up through a good portion of their 10-year marriage.
She also claims that while some of the sex was consensual, much of it wasn’t. Same with the decision to videotape it. In one video, Mel B’s voice can be heard and her fingers seen. Stephen’s lawyers questioned Mel B, asking why she didn’t ask if she was being videotaped. Mel B’s lawyers shot back, saying that bringing up the finger video (I think we can guess what was going on there) was nothing more than “shock value.”
Stephen’s lawyer responded, saying that none of them were edited in any way. His lawyer also claims that none of the videos were submitted just to gawk at Mel B, Stephen, and the nanny getting their threesome on. His lawyer claims they’re all completely “relevant” to the trial. As for Mel B’s claim that Stephen was a regular Bill Cosby, his lawyers doubted that by claiming she, “now takes the position she was drugged.” That might be a hard thing for Mel B’s lawyers to argue. Unless there’s some drug out there you can slip in someone’s food that makes them want to do coke. Honestly, I wouldn’t put it past a piece of crap like Stephen to go to such nefarious lengths.
The judge working Mel B and Stephen’s case says they don’t want to see any videos of a sexual nature in open court. Any sex videos will be viewed in closed court. This whole mess has made me petrified of sex tapes. Sex tapes should never come back to haunt you. From here on out, it’s nothing but daguerreotypes for me. All those weird old pictures look creepy as hell anyway, so at least I won’t be surprised if they haunt me.
