Mel B steps out after revealing ‘marriage hell’
MEL B strides confidently from her divorce lawyer’s office in the first pictures of her since she filed her bombshell court papers against Stephen Belafonte.
The photos in Los Angeles came as others emerged appearing to show the bond between the former Spice Girl and her former nanny, who Belafonte is alleged to have paid £250,000 to abort his baby.
In one, Lorraine Gilles, 25, is seen receiving a birthday kiss from the singer, real name Melanie Brown. The German nanny is also seen posing with Belafonte.
Brown has been granted a restraining order from her husband of ten years after allegations he beat her in jealous rages and forced her to have threesomes with other women that he secretly filmed.
In papers filed to the court, Brown claims Belafonte, also 41, ‘told me he wanted her (Ms Gilles) to have the baby and all three of us live together — I was shocked and in disbelief’. She alleges he then demanded an abortion.
Brown said Belafonte ‘went ballistic’ when she fired her ‘rival’ in 2015 and urged her to re-hire the blonde because she ‘could give a story to the press’.
Ms Gilles’s sister Jacquelyn Baartz denied the claims — she ‘had nothing but positive experiences’ with the family, she said.
Meanwhile, Brown has discounted the couple’s Hollywood home from £7.1million to £6.3million after two weeks.
