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.”
