Mel B gets restraining order against 'abusive' husband Stephen Belafonte

     SPEAKING OUT Stephen commented briefly outside their home

A copy of the restraining order filed by Melanie Janine Brown was obtained by TMZ, in which she outlines horrifying acts of abuse committed by Belafonte throughout their entire marriage.

According to the website, the alleged abuse committed by her husband started with an incident from November 2007 when she was getting ready at home for the finale of Dancing With The Stars in the United States. Belafonte would allegedly force her to participate in sexual intercourse with him and "random women" and that he would secretly record their affairs.

Mel B says she repeatedly tied to leave her husband but he threatened her with violence and said he would sabotage her life and career. 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'.

The allegations include Belafonte allegedly punching and choking Mel, splitting her lip, and pushing her down on a carpet.

Belafonte reportedly "paid the couple's nanny $300,000" to have an abortion. She claimed her skin was burned and her face "actually scabbed over the rug burns".




A hearing on the temporary restraining order has been set for 24 April.

"I believe Respondent took my passport so as to intentionally delay my travel such that I would not see my father prior to his death", she reveals in the papers.

The British singer and America's Got Talent judge filed for divorce from her husband of 10 years last month, citing "irreconcilable differences".

Mr Belafonte denied them at the time in a tweet, writing: "I don't usually respond to Twitter msgs but I will respond to comments of hitting my wife which I think are quite disgusting un true!" But we'll have our day in court. A judge has now granted Brown her request for a restraining order, requiring Belafonte to stay away from her, their daughter Madison, and Brown's two other daughters from previous relationships.

Another allegation Mel B made is that he has a firearm, which in his case is illegal since he has a prior conviction of domestic violence against another woman.
