Whoa! Mel B was allegedly just granted a court order that prohibits Stephen Belafonte from distributing ‘sex tapes, photographs or other sexually explicit material’ that involves Mel, according to a shocking April 7 report. Here’s what we know.
This just keeps getting crazier! Mel B, 41, has asked a judge to stop her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte, 41, from potentially releasing any sex tapes or photos of Mel, as well as her old Spice Girls memorabilia, according to TMZ. And as if it isn’t shocking enough that more than one sex tape allegedly exists, Stephen has apparently threatened to release them multiple times, as sources claim to the site!
Both Mel and Stephen’s lawyers battled it out in court on April 7, the site reports, and the main topic of interest was the sex tapes. Stephen apparently made his threats shortly before she filed for her restraining order, and after Mel filed for divorce and left the house, Stephen ran off with boxes containing photos of Mel’s late father and her Spice Girls mementos! He then locked it up in storage in an unknown Los Angeles location, according to TMZ, and won’t respond to Mel and her lawyers’ requests to get the photos back and/or learn the location of the storage locker. Yikes.
Oh, but there’s more. Mel reportedly contacted her accountant and found out Stephen had been paying for the locker with her money, dating back to 2009. On top of that, the name on the locker turned out to be Lorraine Gilles, the nanny who Mel has alleged Stephen had an affair with. Whoa!
Finally, the judge has apparently not yet ruled on Mel’s lawyers’ request for the locker’s location and passwords needed to access them, as TMZ reports. We’ll keep you posted!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of this new development?
