The accusations Mel B has made against her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte and their nanny Lorraine Gilles are completely shocking. But why wouldn’t she fire the woman that her husband allegedly impregnated?! Docs obtained by HollywoodLife.com explain.
When we first heard Mel B’s wild allegations against her soon-to-be-ex-husband Stephen Bellafonte, 41, and their former nanny Lorraine Gilles, we couldn’t understand why she kept Lorraine as an employee for so long. Stephen allegedly cheated on Mel with her, and even got her pregnant! However, HollywoodLife.com obtained Mel’s court docs on April 7, and they explain the dark reasons behind the situation.
“Lorraine Gilles was hired by [Stephen] in 2010 as a nanny for my children,” explained Mel. “I reluctantly agreed to the employment. In or about May of 2014, I learned that Lorraine Gilles was pregnant with [Stephen’s] child. Thereafter, I attempted to fire Ms. Gilles, but [Stephen] forced me to re-hire Ms. Gilles under the threat that he would destroy me and my career by releasing damaging videos and under threat that he would have Ms. Gilles make false accusations against me as well.” Oh my god!
We have heard about these tapes and forced threesomes before, but to use them to force her to keep his mistress around her children? It’s just appalling. Plus, it gets worse. “He has used this as a means to coerce me into remaining in the relationship,” she continued. “He has admitted to me that our former nanny, Lorraine Gilles, maintains possession and control over the media such that I could never have anyone locate the tapes so as to obtain and destroy the same.” Mel insists that Lorraine still has these tapes as well as many of her personal items locked in a secret storage container, but the nanny refused to give her to location or access. See Mel’s full explanation and all of her court docs in the gallery above.
