Is it Splitsville for Melanie “Mel B” Brown and her husband Stephen Belafonte?
According to the Sunday Mirror, film producer Belafonte has instructed lawyers in Los Angeles to put an end to his three-year marriage with the former Spice Girl.
During a chat with the Mirror, Belafonte reportedly said: “Dude, it’s over. Mel’s coming back to the UK soon – but I won’t be coming with her. There’s been problems lately. I don’t know what’s happening.”
A friend of Melanie B said: “They’ve not been happy for a long time and there’s been rowing. But she’s making plans to come back to the UK on a more permanent basis. Stephen hasn’t been mentioned as joining her and has been consulting lawyers.”
There’s been no official word from either of their reps yet, but a snitch tells The Sun that it’s not the end just yet.
A ‘friend’ said: “Stephen can be a drama queen. There have been lots of rows, often fuelled by drink. But they’ll try and work things out.”
