Just last month, “X Factor” judge Mel B was gushing over her marriage with Stephen Belafonte. But now rumors are flying that their marriage is in serious trouble and that Belafonte recently attacked Mel.
According to the Sun newspaper, Mel missed the semi-finals of the UK “X Factor” due to an unspecified illness this past weekend. However, she showed up to the taping of the finals the next day and allegedly had bruises on her arms and face. Mel also allegedly showed up without her wedding ring on.
Soon after rumors began flying that Mel had suffered abuse at the hands of Belafonte and, according to Us Weekly, Mel’s own sister, Danielle Brown, added fuel to the fire by now-deleted tweets during Mel’s supposed illness about going to the press with recordings of what she called “abusive” phone calls Belafonte had allegedly made to Mel in the past week unless he allowed her and her mother to talk to Mel.
Rumors also claimed that Mel was moving out of their home and Us Weekly confirmed that luggage and boxes were being taken away from their home on Monday.
However, Belafonte is calling the rumors untrue and he opened up about them recently on Twitter. Read what he had to say after the cut. –nicholas robinson
