Sensational new claims from Mel B as her divorce battle enters court.
Mel B has claimed that she was drugged by her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte throughout their decade-long marriage, as their increasingly rancorous divorce battle finally enters the courts.
The 42 year old former Spice Girls and current ‘America’s Got Talent’ judge, real name Melanie Brown, is divorcing her husband of ten years and is alleging that he perpetrated domestic violence against her throughout their marriage.
However, the Los Angeles Superior Court was told on Wednesday (October 25th) during preliminary hearings that Brown now claims that Belafonte drugged her, as well as subjecting her to years of physical abuse and mental torment.

After a rather wretched performance from one of the contestants, Cowell cracked a joke about Mel's marriage to Stephen Belafonte.
Mel B sensationally threw a glass of water over Simon Cowell and stormed off the set of ‘America’s Got Talent’ this week, after the music mogul cracked a joke about the former Spice Girl’s troubled marriage.
Cowell looked on from the judging panel with Mel as the magician contestant Demian Aditya’s attempted trick went awry on Tuesday night (August 22nd) when his ‘dangerous’ attempt to escape from a locked suspended box ended with nothing happening. When it came to the remarks afterwards, he couldn’t resist a dig at his colleague’s expense.
“I kind of imagined this would be like Mel B's wedding night,” Cowell cracked. “A lot of anticipation, not much promise or delivery.”
The divorce battle between Mel B and Stephen Belafonte is heating up, with Belafonte's lawyers claiming the former Spice Girl has blown almost all her $50 million fortune.
Former Spice Girl Mel B has squandered virtually all of her personal multi-million dollar fortune in leading an “extravagant” lifestyle and is now almost broke, a court was told in her increasingly bitter divorce battle from estranged husband Stephen Belafonte.
The 42 year old star attended a family court in Los Angeles on Friday (June 30th) to face Belafonte for the first time, ever since she applied for divorce on March 20th citing irreconcilable differences and claiming he had subjected her to years of physical and emotional abuse.

She's promoting her first solo album in ten years, but the hosts wanted to know more about the rumoured reunion.
The much-rumoured Spice Girls 20th anniversary reunion might be back on the cards as Geri Halliwell confirmed that the girl group has been in “talks” about getting back together for a brief celebratory tour.
Halliwell, 43, appeared on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ on Tuesday (September 8th) when she was asked whether the group had any plans to mark two decades since their first single and album next year. She responded cautiously, admitting that her band-mates Emma Bunton, Mel B and Mel C had been in preliminary discussions about reuniting (Victoria Beckham is already believed to have turned down the possibility).
However, she didn’t want to get fans’ hopes up unnecessarily as nothing had been set in stone yet. “I think it's really faltering that people are still supportive of the Spice Girls individually and collectively, that's beautiful, it's really nice. It almost feels you know that it [the Spice Girls] belongs to everyone, like a generation.”

Just a few hours later, she seemed to put a dampener on those rumours on her Heart London breakfast radio show. “If anything happens and it’s concrete, and we decide on something, I will let you know, but nothing’s happening at the moment,” she said.
