Mel B Reveals Shocking Claims of Domestic Abuse
Mel B was granted a restraining order against her husband Stephen Belafonte after claims that he was “extremely aggressive, hostile, and violent.”
A list of disturbing allegations were released in court documents as part of Mel B and Stephen’s ugly divorce on Monday.
The Spice Girl describes their abusive relationship, which began in 2007. She said that at the time she was “pregnant and vulnerable,” and that it quickly turned into a controlling, manipulative relationship full of abuse.
He “often times demanded that I participate in sexual intercourse with him and random women that he brought back to our hotel rooms,” Mel B alleges. He would then threaten to release compromising videos of her.
Mel B says she discovered that Stephen was having sex with their nanny, Lorraine Gilles, and was paying her inordinate amounts of money.
He “treated Lorraine as if she was his wife and I was second rate.” Lorraine became pregnant after which he allegedly demanded she get an abortion.
Mel B also claimed she suffered physical abuse, which resulted in multiple injuries including facial and bodily wounds, which caused her to miss filming The X Factor UK. This became a huge major media storm.
The accusations go on to list a long, messy relationship.
Belafonte is denying the charges and responded Tuesday by saying: “Someone’s setting me up to look like a bad guy.”
