How heartbreaking. After nearly a decade of marriage, Melanie ‘Mel B’ Brown has filed for divorce from her husband Stephen Belafonte. To get all the details on this shocking split, click below!
Mel B, 41, may know a thing or two about two becoming one, but one is now becoming two because the Spice Girls singer just filed for divorce from her husband of nearly ten years, Stephen Belafonte, 41, according to divorce documents obtained by PEOPLE.
In the divorce papers, Mel B reportedly listed the date of the couple’s separation as December 28. She also asked for joint legal and physical custody of their daughter, Madison Brown Belfonte, 5. Furthermore, Mel B allegedly requested “to terminate the court’s ability to award spousal support.”
Mel B and Stephen got married in 2007 after just five months of dating, and they have quite the blended family — a modern day “Brady Bunch,” if you will. Along with Madison, Mel B has two daughters from her previous relationships — Angel Iris Murphy Brown, 9, and Phoenix Chi Gulzar, 17. Angel’s father is Eddie Murphy, while Pheonix’s is Mel B’s ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar. Meanwhile, Stephen has his own daughter, Giselle Belafonte, 12, from his relationship with ex-girlfriend Nicole Contreras.
Despite their earlier separation, Mel B took to Instagram to express her love for Stephen in February. See below.
