Former Spice Girl Mel B Details Horrific Claims of Spousal Abuse

Former Spice Girls singer Mel B has won a temporary restraining order against her estranged husband after claiming he subjected her to years of abuse. Some of the incidents include a time from November 2007 when she was getting ready for her finale on Dancing With the Stars. She says this was the pattern ... when she achieved any measure of success, he would "beat me down to let me know he was in charge".

She writes she tried to leave Belafonte multiple times, but he "threatened [her] with violence and threatened to destroy [her] life in every possible way... destroy [her] career and take [her] kids from [her]".

Belafonte has apparently now left Mel's home in Hollywood Hills on a judge's orders as of Monday. The singer claims that ex-husband Stephen Belafonte was abusive, that he beat her, and that he extorted her during their marriage.

In divorce papers last month, Mel cited "irreconcilable differences", but she is now accusing Stephen of physical abuse, extortion and blackmail. When Belafonte found out that there was a sudden change in her engagement, he got upset and accused the singer of flirting with Usher.

In her filing for the order, Mel B detailed terrifying instances of physical and sexual abuse dating back several years. "So I forced her to have threesomes?" he asked, nearly rolling his eyes. Brown says that he ultimately forced the nanny to get an abortion and that he paid the nanny in excess of $300,000 out of her earnings "for alleged nanny services".

The America's Got talent judge filed for divorce from Belafonte in March, after 10 years of marriage. "It's accusation after accusation, but we'll have our day in court". There are some scary allegations from her side that Stephen Belafonte had an very bad behavior.Melanie's lawyers granted a restraining order for her, cause as she claims she fears for her own life and her kids. Stephen is prohibited from carrying firearms, following a previous domestic violence conviction from a past relationship.
