Apparently there’s a Sliding Doors-style alternate universe in which Scary Spice is the one that doesn’t come back for a reunion tour. In Mel B’s memoir Brutally Honest, which comes out next week, she says that she once swallowed 200 pills in an attempt to leave her marriage to Stephen Belafonte.
Okay, so just the other day Mel B was denying, denying, denying all of these allegations that she’s a sex-aholic with the libido of Zeus and a drug-user equivalent to Charlie Sheen? Welp, the Los Angeles County Superior Court thought on it and, at least on the drug-use, wrote Mel B a letter saying: “Disagree.”
Mel B is back to assure you that she is still not an alcoholic or sex addict, but she brought proof this time.
According to TMZ Mel B has been having a rough time with it. Her ex, Stephen Belafonte, has been trying to get more custody of the kids. He made some declarations to the court and they were not nice. One man, Russell Updegraff, who was apparently responsible for watching the kids, Madison and Angel, had a lot to declare about Mel B. Mostly that she’s a mess. Continue reading
I can hear this picture, it sounds like an L.A.-by-way-of- Leeds accent, and it says: “He wants WOT?”
Earlier this month, we learned that Mel B and Stephen Belafonte had finally settled their divorce. Stephen’s getting $20,000 a month, which includes $5,000 for child support of their 6-year-old daughter Madison Belafonte, and $15,000 in spousal support for himself. Mel B and Stephen had also reportedly agreed to share custody of Madison. Stephen may be ok with the money, but not the custody. TMZ says that Stephen appeared in court today, claiming Mel isn’t fit to care for her three daughters, because she’s drunk all the time. Here we go again.
According to TMZ, Mel B and Stephen Belafonte have finally – FINALLY – wrapped up their awful divorce. With all the allegations of spousal abuse surrounding Stephen, you’d think he’d be lucky to leave that marriage without an angry mob of Spice Girls fans chasing him down the street, throwing Buffalo platforms at his head. Instead, Stephen will walk away with $20,000 every month.
They don’t call her Scary Spice for nothing.
So my childhood is just not safe–no one’s is. The Spice Girls were a big part of my homosexual youth; to learn that Mel B was going through some drastic divorce shit was sad for me. And I thought it was over back in November when she and ex Stephen Belafonte reached a divorce settlement. But it wasn’t over and got messier.
After the settlement was maybe reached, the two continued to slap at each other through lawyers. Probably because Stephen was making off with too much of Mel’s money and she was also trying to limit man’s visitation rights of her kids. She tried talking about how he showed their children ISIS beheading videos (were they on WorldStarHipHop.com?), which he denied, claiming she was a messy drunk and pill-popper which made her mind imagine all the terrorism videos. She also claimed the only reason she was a pill-popper was him, accusing him of drugging her up through their marriage and abusing her in many ways. I know, this is fucking messy. Take notes Brad and Angelina: don’t let it get this bad!
