Battle for Mel B’s Divorce: Ex-Mark Spice ‘Exorbitant’ Demand from Stephen Belafonte | Celebrity News | Show biz & TV
The former Spice Girls star, who filed for divorce from the film producer in April, received her court documents from her ex for emergency spousal support.
Claims include a housing allowance of Â£ 8,000 per month, Â£ 110 per day for food, Â£ 1,570 per month for clothing and Â£ 590 per month to cover her mobile phone plan and pay off the balance of Â£ 47,000 on his credit card.
He also claims that the negative publicity surrounding their split cost him the opportunity to earn Â£ 390,000 on a project.
Mel, 41, retaliates by insisting that Stephen, 42, should just ‘get a job’ if he doesn’t earn anything working at Serafina, the restaurant they co-own.
However, Stephen, who claims to have slept on his friends’ couches after being kicked out of the home he shared with Mel, their daughter Madison, five, and the singer’s children from previous relationships, Phoenix and Angel, 10 years, considers his requests to be reasonable.
He explains that Mel is more than able to pay as she earns between Â£ 170,000 and Â£ 190,000 per month.

He added in court documents: âWe lived a very comfortable, upper-class lifestyleâ¦ money was never a barrier.
Meanwhile, a judge dismissed Mel’s restraining order against former nanny Lorraine Gilles – the woman caught in the crossfire of the split after Mel accused her of becoming pregnant with Stephen and the having extorted since she filed for divorce – because the ex-employee was never personally served with the papers.
Kate Garraway surprised former Spice Girl Geri Horner by wearing her most iconic stage outfit
Looks like Kate Garraway is a Wannabe. The Good Morning Britain host surprised former Spice Girl Geri Horner in an interview wearing her most iconic stage outfit.
âI decided, as a little gift for you, to wear the Union Jack dress,â the 50-year-old breakfast TV presenter told her guest before undoing her coat to reveal the famous dress.
Geri, 44, who wore the little patriotic number when she performed at the 1997 Brit Awards and immediately became one of the defining images of the time, looked elated to remember her past as pop star.
The woman who was known as Ginger Spice has now settled into family life and lives in North London with Formula 1 chief husband Christian, 43, their six month old son Monty and his daughter Bluebell, 10, from a previous relationship.
However, she admitted that she would gladly don her old platform boots if there was ever a Spice Girls reunion: âI have an open door policy. If the girls want to do it, I’m there 100 percent.

This is one of the most unexpected couples we’ve seen in ages, but Dame Helen Mirren has secured a surprising new admirer in the form of American rapper 50 Cent.
Proving that Dame Helen’s power of attraction has not waned with age, the 71-year-old actress left the former gangster in love after bumping into him on the red carpet in Monte Carlo earlier this week. .
The hit-maker In Da Club – who is 30 years younger than Dame Helen – shared a photo of himself next to her with the message spouting, âI think I like him, man. I try not to look at her. She just has this stuff, you know I can’t describe it.
We hate to tell you, 50 – real name Curtis Jackson – but the septuagenarian is celebrating 20 years of marriage to her director husband Taylor Hackford, 72, later this year.
Better luck next time!
Ed Sheeran to headline Glastonbury
IT HAS landed one of the biggest concerts in the world of headlining music in Glastonbury, but Ed Sheeran doesn’t think it’s worth staying at the famous event.
“If it was me, I would come home before I play, so fair play to everyone who stays,” said the 26-year-old who will perform tomorrow night putting an end to the gigantic five-day extravaganza.
The Shape Of You singer also admits that he is not a fan of the festival but that he will take the opportunity to convince all the skeptics on the Worthy Park site.
He adds: âI like to see one or two bands but the festivals are all a bit intense, I think. I’m just excited to play for a lot of people who don’t really care about me or my music and I’m excited to convince people.
Our dear self-mockery, Ed. It’s actually OK to blow your own trumpet every now and then!
