Former Spice Girl Mel B claims she endured years of horrific abuse at hands of her estranged husband, saying he routinely beat her any time she achieved success, sexually exploited her and even got their nanny pregnant.
Amid a new restraining order request against Belafonte, the star has accused the 41-year-old producer of a variety of abuse and threats over the course of their marriage, including physical assault and battery, verbal threats and surveilling.
According to TMZ, Mel B was granted a restraining order against Belafonte on Monday, and stated he would "beat me down to let me know he was in charge". Her life was a nightmare as Stephen was threatening her that he will destroy her life and that he would also take the kids from her.
TMZ caught up with Stephen as he was moving his stuff out of the pair's Hollywood Hills home on April 3, and although he brushed off the abuse claims without giving a direct response, he scoffed at Mel's allegations that he "forced" her into sex. He blamed the injury on Mel B, saying she should've thought about how she would work before she made a decision to 'flirt with and f*** Usher'. If she refused to do so, her ex-husband threatened to release compromising videos of her.
When she resisted the three-ways, Belafonte would allegedly threaten to release the sex tapes in an effort to ruin her career.

The bill provoked a wave of criticism from opposition politicians, media companies and various network activists. Maas said the government wants the bill to become law before the general election in September.
"Omg "girl on a train" I thought the book was good but my word the movie is gripping", the mum of three had told her followers. Stephen eventually made the nanny get an abortion. The singer claims she is in fear for their safety.
In the document, which was filed on Monday, April 3, Brown claims that Belafonte was abusive during their almost 10-year marriage.
She also alleged Belafonte throttled her in 2007, the night she was a finalist on Dancing With The Stars. She filed to divorce her husband of almost 10 years on March 20, citing irreconcilable differences Court records filed in their divorce do not include a lawyer for Belafonte, and attempts to find a representative for him were unsuccessful.
Brown previously denied rumors in 2014 that Belafonte was physically abusive. We'll have our day in court'. Stephen is prohibited from carrying firearms, following a previous domestic violence conviction from a past relationship.
