Mel B Claims ‘Stephen Belafonte Drugged Her Throughout Their Marriage’
Former Spice Girl Mel B claims she was drugged by her estranged husband throughout most of their 10-year marriage.
The America’s Got Talent judge, whose real name is Melanie Brown, had previously accused Stephen Belafonte of domestic violence at their divorce trial in Los Angeles.
LA’s Superior Court was told on Wednesday the singer now claims he also drugged her.
One of Belafonte’s lawyers, Philip Cohen, said: “Miss Brown now takes the position she was drugged by Mr Belafonte throughout the course of the marriage.”
The singer, 42, alleged she was drugged throughout “much to most” of the relationship during a recent out-of-court testimony, Mr Cohen added.
Belafonte, also 42, is accused of tormenting Brown with years of mental and physical abuse.
