#SpiceGirl and #AmericasGotTalent judge #MelB and her estranged husband #StephenBelafonte have been going through the messiest divorce we’ve ever seen, chile! They’re headed for trial beginning November 6th and we hope Mel has a good legal team behind her!
Apparently, Belafonte has handed over 56 videos of his soon-to-be-ex-wife in which she is allegedly engaging in cocaine use and salacious sexual acts. Mel, whose real name is Melanie Brown, says that she was drugged up for most of her marriage to Belafonte and didn’t consent to some of the acts as well as the filming of some of the acts.
On top of battling the recordings, Brown will also be filing a restraining order against Belafonte and her nanny Lorraine Gilles who she believes teamed up in a conspiracy to extort her for millions of dollars! She has accused them of threatening to release the aforementioned tapes in order to embarrass the pop star. It is suspected that Belafonte has more videos of Brown and refuses to hand them over.
Belafonte’s legal team isn’t buying Brown’s claims. Attorney Philip Cohen insisted that the evidence they have had not been fabricated. “None of these videos has been edited. None of these videos has been submitted for a prurient interest. These videos are relevant,” he said.
The judge presiding over this case, however, took issue with the way Cohen interviewed Brown during her deposition.
Via Daily Mail:
Judge Juhas took issue with Cohen over his ‘entirely inappropriate’ questioning of Mel during a deposition in which she was asked about a sex video in which she was not featured but, claimed Cohen, her voice could be heard and her fingers could be seen on film.
In the deposition, Cohen asked Mel, “Is it your position that you were drugged in this video?” Mel answered no, but said Judge Juhas to Cohen, “Why didn’t you ask, did you take this video?”
