Mel B Describes Alleged Horrific Abuse From Stephen Belafonte

Mel B was granted a restraining order against estranged husband Stephen Belafonte, and in her declaration papers, described some horrifying alleged abuse from her estranged partner.

The 41-year-old entertainer said 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.

She also described many incidents of alleged physical abuse, including the day before performing at the closing ceremonies of the London Olympics in 2012, where he punched her and pushed her on the carpet, where her injuries “actually scabbed over the rug burns.”

Mel B also claimed Stephen got their nanny pregnant and wanted them to all live together as a family. Eventually, Stephen forced the nanny to get an abortion. She also added in her filing, he “threatened me with violence and threatened to destroy my life in every possible way … destroy my career and take my kids from me,” via TMZ.

Mel B filed for divorce last month.

    I have always thought MB’s husband looks mean. There is something in his face. And didn’t he do something bad to an animal? Seems I remember a report.

    Anyway, if she put up with all this kind of abuse, had a baby and stayed for all this time with him, she has issues.

    Yeah, he punched her dog. His brother talked about it:

    One of the lowest moments came when Belafonte attacked the Spice Girl’s dog, he alleged.

    Jeremiah claimed: “I saw him punch Lord in the ribs full force with all of his strength.

    “The dog collapsed and had no breath and was crying. He was standing there laughing. It made me feel ill.

    “This was in July 2008 and Mel was not there to intervene.

    “Steve loves to hurt animals. When we were teenagers — he was about 13 — he killed a duck in the street. He took a brick and smashed it over the head.”

    Ugh! In other words, he is sadistic.

    I feel sorry for Mel B for marrying a man like that. She definitely must have some deep issues. And getting away from men like him can be dangerous.

  • Kellyp

    disgusting.

    Do we need to say she has issues? A huge component of domestic violence is psychological and there is severe manipulation and trauma. Many people feel tremendous shame in that and I’m sure it took a lot for her to disclose what he did to her in public.

    Whether you think she has issues or not, maybe you should think before saying that in a public forum whether other people struggling with that shame might see it. Perhaps you didn’t intend to pass judgement, but it can come off that way.

    I like Mel B. She’s a beautiful lady and I esp liked her on DWTS… But I’ll repeat, yes, she must have some “issues.” This is not a teen bride or a woman limited by income etc. This is an adult woman who already had one child and then got pregnant by Eddie Murphy and he dumped her. She had already had fame and fortune… and then she chose THIS man? Come one, let us be real and not PC. How could Mel B take up with someone like this and expose her children to harm. Something is not right with her. Yes many times things look good on the outside, but people have all kinds of issues, usually going back to their childhoods etc.

    We all have issues, but unless we face them and call them what they are, we often repeat the mistakes we made.

    I’ve met quite a few women who were abused etc and, generally, there are reasons for it. Anyone can make a mistake, but a rich and famous woman staying with a sadistic man like this for years?

    I hope she figures it out and goes on to bigger and brighter things without this man.

    So what took her so long to file for divorce?

  • persononhere

    so the best time to bring this up is during a divorce? it didn’t enter her mind to leave earlier? hard to feel sorry for her

  • Melissa Iris

    I am glad she left him. He has a history of domestic abuse LONG before MelB ever came into the picture
