Mel B Files Restraining Order Against Ex-Stephen Belafonte
Mel B now has a restraining order against estranged hubby Stephen Belafonte.
Following their split last month, the Spice Girl is branding him a ‘monster’.
She is accusing him of being physically abusive, as well as sexually exploiting her, during their 10-year marriage.
Lawyers put the court order in place on Monday, April 3, forcing Belafonte to keep away from Mel and her three children.
The 41-year old admits lying in the past to cover up Stephen’s violent ways.
She has often blamed suspicious bruises and scars on falling over rather than admitting her husband’s abusive nature.
TMZ are reporting that Mel is citing several accounts of abuse dating back to 2007.
Despite previously saying her husband would never harm her, Mel is now admitting that she’s been covering up his vindictive ways for some time.
Following Mel’s performance at the London Olympics in 2012, Stephen reportedly punched her in the face.
Mel then tweeted about falling over in her Louboutin heels to avoid any speculating fans.
“Scary Spice” is fighting for full custody of their daughter Madison, aged 5.
The America’s Got Talent star is also denying Stephen of any financial support towards the family.
Mel’s brother in law, Jeremiah, claims that jealousy is the cause of their relationship woes.
The former couple are known for sexually experimenting with other stars.
Mel says Stephen has been threatening her with tapes for years in order to ruin her career.
Her soon-to-be ex hubby’s home was raided on Friday in search for a gun.
He keeps it locked up in his bedroom closet, according to Mel.
Yesterday, Stephen moved his belongings out of their Hollywood Hills mansion.
