Mel B Ordered To Pay Stephen Belafonte $40K A Month
The judge in Stephen Belafonte and Mel B’s divorce proceedings bought his sob story about being too broke to function, because he just granted his request for emergency spousal support.
If you’ll recall, Stephen was asking Mel for around $18k a month to pay for housing, clothes, food, and his cell phone bill. Mel called that amount into serious question due to the fact that it seemed exorbitant and unnecessary.
However, according to TMZ the judge granted him over two times that amount — at least for the time being — and actually did Mel a favor, since he could have told her to cough up $15k a month more, based on documents filed.
So for now, Mel has to pay Stephen $40,000 a month to make sure that he stays fed and fly until their divorce settlement is final, on top of a one-time payment of $140,000 for his legal fees.
SHEESH. You would think that with all Stephen allegedly put Mel through, and the fact that he’s just one man without custody of his children…the amount would be exponentially lower. But the law is what it is, we guess….
