Mel B from “America’s Got Talent” has had an eventful month. Her father died just a couple weeks ago, and now she’s filed for divorce from her husband of 10 years.
The couple married in 2007 after just 5 months of dating, and have had their fair share of rough patches over the years. In 2014, she was hospitalized with some severe stomach pain, and appeared a few days after that on The X-Factor with what looked like bruises all over. Here was her husband, Stephen Belafonte’s twitter response to allegations of abuse:
The divorce papers list the date of separation as December 28th (2016), and in the paperwork she asked for joint legal and physical custody of their 5 year old daughter. She admits they don’t have a lot in common, but she “likes him a lot,” and this Instagram post from February of this year would suggest that.
It sounds like she’s going through a lot recently, and we hope she gets through it with no drama.
