Mel B has filed for divorce from her husband of nearly ten years, Stephen Belafonte.
The former Spice Girl and current GEM member cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split, according to reports from multiple sources.
The court docs show Melanie asked for joint custody of the couple’s daughter, Madison Brown Belafonte, but also requested the court terminate any request for spousal support. Damn.
Innerestingly, the couple somehow kept their troubles quiet for nearly three months; the date on the court documents is December 28 — over a month BEFORE Mel shared this celebratory message on her Instagram:
My baby boo @stephenthinks11 we have been through everything that would normally tear couples apart and we have come out on the other side stronger,you loved me before I even new how to really love myself,you are my world honey and let’s not forget you are abit of a dickhead too xxxx #tenyearsmarried #fightfortheineyoulove #theysaiditwouldntlast #bitcheswishtheyhadthis #nowtalkaboutmeA post shared by Mel B (@officialmelb) on Feb 6, 2017 at 3:55pm PST
So sad they couldn’t make it work.
We wish the family all the best in this difficult time.
