Adjust Comment Print

Mel B has made some shocking claims against her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte.

However, now legal papers have emerged alleging the singer and her children fear for their lives at the hands of Stephen who reportedly subjected the presenter to years of abuse.

She has also accused the producer of hurting her after he flew into a fit of rage out of "jealousy" when she filmed a segment with Usher, which he saw as "flirting", for "The X Factor" in 2012.

She also claims he forced her to "participate in sexual intercourse with him and random women" and he would often secretly record the encounters.

Mel also alleged that Stephen got their nanny pregnant and said he proposed that she move in and they all live together, but then demanded the nanny got an abortion while also supposedly paying her off to the tune of $300,000. Belafonte, 41, has been ordered by authorities to leave the family's Los Angeles home and to stay away from Brown, 41, and her three daughters: Phoenix, 18, Angel, 10, and 5-year-old Madison.

In another allegation, Brown claims Belafonte blocked her from getting help after she took an entire bottle of aspirin in a "moment of emotional and physical exhaustion". Mel B, whose real name is Melanie Brown, claims that she tried to leave her husband multiple times before the two separated in December, but that he threatened her with violence and said he would "destroy" her life in "every possible way". Her skin became "scabbed over the rug burns", and so Belafonte forced her to tweet out that she injured herself by running on 7-inch Louboutin heels.

It remains to be seen whether full back Aaron Cresswell has recovered from his injury in time to face Arsenal. Ospina, meanwhile, could leave the Emirates at the end of the season.

Brown detailed how Belafonte, who she married in 2007 before recently filing for divorce, would punch her in the face with a closed fist.


The request was granted on Monday and a full hearing was scheduled on April 24.

The site also obtained images of Mel with bruises on her face, which she's saying were caused by Stephen. He allegedly threw her into a bedroom, locked the door and yelled, "'Die bitch!' " according to the documents.

The singer asserts that her estranged husband possessed a gun in their home even though the law prohibits him to do so given a former domestic violence conviction involving another woman. "I am really distraught in my brain how this is going to affect our children and the depths that she's going through..." "I was shocked and in disbelief", Brown states in the declaration. We guess we'll have to see how this plays out in court.

When he went to pack up his belongings, TMZ caught up with Stephen, where he denied Mel's claims and sarcastically brushed them off.
