Domestic Violence, a Pregnant Nanny, Forced Third Party Sexual Activities & More Details emerge from Mel B’s Divorce Proceedings



Former Spice Girl and judge of America’s Got Talent, Mel B filed for a divorce last month from her husband Stephen Belafonte. The details of the divorce papers have been made available via TMZ and they reveal quite horrific scenarios.

According to the divorce papers, Mel B was subject to physical abuse. She describes a particular incident where, before performing at the closing ceremonies of the London Olympics in 2012, her estranged husband punched her and pushed her on the carpet, where her injuries “actually scabbed over the rug burns.”

In an earlier case of domestic violence which happened in November 2007, the night of her “Dancing with the Stars” finale, Mel B says as she was getting ready at home her estranged husband placed both of his hands around her neck and began choking her and slammed her down onto the hardwood floors. She says this was the pattern … when she achieved any measure of success, he would “beat me down to let me know he was in charge.”

In another case of abuse, she says that her estranged husband would often force her to engage in sexual activities with a third partner, and he would often record the encounters. Stephen then allegedly would threaten to release the tapes if she refused to take part in the three-way sex.

The 41-year-old entertainer also stated that he got their nanny pregnant and wanted them to all live together as a family. Eventually, Stephen forced the nanny to get an abortion.

She added that he “threatened me with violence and threatened to destroy my life in every possible way … destroy my career and take my kids from me.”

Speaking to TMZ’s photog, Stephan says the allegations are untrue.

    Why, pls why do you people lie on Instagram? This man is a beast, why protect him by lying and faking it all these years. Who are you trying to please really? I’m tired of all these news on DV but what is more tiring and confusing is the lies that these women tell. The make believe life/marriage. Must you come on social media to tell us how good he is in the first place and how you worship him. I’m sure nobody forced you to say those things then. Abeg, all these celebrating and worshipping of your spouse on SM is ENOUGH. Even if he is an angel, worship him in your closet. Haba!!!!! Can’t believe she put up with all these shit. Sorry for the rant. It’s slowly becoming a trend in our society. Praise beast and later spill the truth.

    It’s so funny, I remember when she had a bruise somewhere on her body and the media suggested that she was being abused, she vehemently denied it. I’m happy she’s ending the marriage, so sad!

    The truth is that women is longer marriages are putting up with a lot of shit and emotionally withdraw from their spouse. Very few men find ways not to hurt their spouses emotionally. I recently tried connecting with an ex and he told me he likes orgies, three and foursomes that he his trying to slow down that but we could experiment it if I want to explore. I of course turned it down and blocked his number. Woman if it is not your standard don’t give it a chance

    are there any good men left. I will not be able to live with a man after I find that has betrayed d most sacred union of trust; by sleeping with another – putting himself & family at risk of STDs or a broken marriage. Is it that these men cannot be disciplined and have to sleep around? Are there no men who can keep the promise they have made to their spouses? the thought of marriage scares me just as much as I want it bcos of this common place cheating n abuse cropping up daily. I will absolutely not condone a bad husband (this includes cheating which i equate to backstabbing, abusive man, disrespectful, lazy man)
