Last December, singer Mel B announced her separation from husband Steven Belafonte. The scandalous breakup was widely publicized: the artist accused her husband of domestic violence, adultery and coercion into group sex.
Mel admitted that her husband used to film their intimate life on camera and threatened her that he would make these recordings public. According to the singer, her husband had outbursts of anger when he became completely uncontrollable. Stephen, in turn, spoke about the behavior of his wife: according to him, Mel abused drugs and alcohol.
Now the warring parties met for the first time in court. Belafonte behaved extremely nervous, but Mel tried not to even look in his direction and in every possible way avoided glances to where her husband was sitting. The singer's lawyers intend to achieve severe punishment for Belafonte: they even suggested calling his sexual harassment against the nanny domestic violence. If the court recognizes the rightness of the lawyers, then the man will face a more severe punishment.
