Mel B and Stephen Belafonte Divorce 2017

Mel B Files For Divorce From Stephen Belafonte After Nearly 10 Years of Marriage

Mel B has filed for divorce from husband Stephen Belafonte after nearly 10 years of marriage, People reports. The former Spice Girls singer is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their 5-year-old daughter, Madison Belafonte, and the date of their separation is listed as Dec. 28 in the court documents. Mel has also requested to terminate the court's ability to award spousal support. It hasn't been the easiest month for Mel; her father, Martin Brown, recently passed away after a five-year battle with cancer. She announced the tragic news in an emotional Instagram post, writing, "It is with great sadness after a 5yr battle to multiple myeloma cancer our loving father Martin Brown passed away age 63 peacefully."

Mel and Stephen wed in a secret ceremony back in 2007 after five months of dating. Mel is also mother to daughters Angel, 9, and Phoenix, 17, from previous relationships, and Stephen shares daughter Giselle, 12, with ex-girlfriend Nicole Contreras.
