SCARY SPICE MEL B FILES FOR DIVORCE FROM HUSBAND STEPHEN BELAFONTE AFTER 10 YEARS OF MARRIAGE
Spice Girl Mel B has reportedly filed for divorce from husband Stephen Belafonte.
According to US reports, Mel B recently filed divorce papers and listed their date of separation as December 28.
Reportedly court documents, obtained by People magazine, revealed that Mel has asked for joint legal and physical custody of their daughter, Madison Brown Belfonte, five.
Mel, 41, cited "irreconcilable differences" and is requesting for spousal support to Stephen to be terminated.

The America's Got Talent judge pictured here with Stephen Belafonte in January 2016 in Beverly Hills, said the relationship plagued with controversy and claims of violent rows.
The star submitted the legal documents with her legal name. Mel B, who was also a judge on The X Factor UK, is being repped by top family law attorney Susan Wiesner in the divorce.
My opinion- I am happy for Mel B for her courage to leave her alleged violent marriage, it's not worth wasting your time for someone who is very selfish and think about themselves only.
