Mel B Files For Divorce From Stephen Belafonte
Another one bites the dust…
After 10 years of matrimony-dom, Melanie “Scary Spice/Mel B” Brown has filed for divorce from husband Stephen Belafonte.
People acquired the divorce papers. In the file, Mel B lists the date of separation as December 28, requests joint legal and physical custody of their 5-year-old daughter, Madison Brown Belfonte, and requests to terminate the court’s ability to award spousal support.
The timing seems very sudden, especially given the fact that just last month — just over a month after the listed date of separation — Mel still seemed to have lots of love for Stephen, even dedicating a “Ten Years of Marriage” post to him:
The couple married back in 2007 after just five months of dating and with Mel B having just given birth to daughter Angel, fathered by Eddie Murphy, only two months prior to their secret wedding.
Altogether, their blended family included 5-year-old Madison, 9-year-old Angel Iris Murphy Brown, 17-year-old Phoenix Chi Gulzar from Mel’s previous marriage, and 12-year-old Giselle Belafonte from Stephen’s previous relationship.
So sad to hear another long-term couple calling it quits like this! Especially with all their daughters.
