Regranned from :entertainmentninfo - Mel B accused of ‘taking cocaine in front of her children’ in shocking new claims as she battles ex Stephen Belafonte in court #factsOCT. 2, 2017. MEL B has allegedly been accused of taking cocaine in front of her children in shocking new claims as she battles her ex Stephen Belafonte in court.
The mum-of-three is facing fresh drama after Stephen alleged she has been battling a secret addiction to drugs and alcohol.
Court documents have revealed her estranged husband Stephen made a legal declaration claiming her drug and alcohol abuse was the real reason for their marriage breakdown – after she accused him of domestic abuse.
The paperwork, seen by The Sun Online, details the bitter feud between Mel, 42, and Stephen after they split late last year.
The declaration was filed at #losangelesSuperior Court, and it was handed over along copies of dozens of text messages between Stephen, Mel, and #beverlyhillsmarriage therapist #DrCharlesSophy
At one point, the film producer, 42, alleges Mel might be taking drugs in front of the kids.
He said he was especially concerned as she had sacked the family’s nanny.
In the legal papers, he stated: “The biggest reason for my concern with respect to the safety of the children was due to the Petitioner’s habitual and consistent addiction to and abuse of cocaine and alcohol.
She filed them as part of a request for a restraining order to keep Stephen away from her.
Mel accused Stephen of being physically abusive, and alleged he beat her so badly before #thefactorfinal in 2014 she had to pull out.
The bitter divorce battle has been complicated by a lawsuit from former nanny Lorraine, who is suing Mel over her affair claims.
According to reports, Stephen will only get a fraction of the Spice Girl's £48million fortune due to a prenuptial agreement.
In July 2017 it was reported Mel is paying Stephen £30,500 a month as emergency spousal support and is covering his legal fees to the tune of £106,900 #entertainmentninfo #ninfonetwork #melb #spicegirls #stephenbelafonte #simoncowell #howiemandel #celebrities #bbc #london #england #enews #dailymail #tmz #eddiemurphy #british #paris #FRA
