He drugged me for 10 years
The mud just keeps being slung in the bitter split between Melanie ‘Mel B’ Brown and Stephen Belafonte
THE UGLY BATTLE BETWEEN MELANIE “MEL B” Brown and Stephen Belafonte continued in its nasty vein when it emerged during Los Angeles court proceedings on Oct. 25 that Brown claims her ex drugged her throughout “much to most” of their relationship. “Miss Brown now takes the position she was drugged by Mr Belafonte throughout the course of the marriage,” said Belafonte’s lawyer, Philip Cohen, calling the allegations “nothing more than a smear campaign.”
In the same hearing, Brown’s lawyers said Belafonte had at least 56 videos, a third of which were “of a sexual nature.” Brown’s legal team said “90 per cent” of the videos were made without her consent.
In April, Brown, 42, filed for a temporary restraining order against her ex and accused him of physically and emotionally abusing her. In the filing she also accused Belafonte, 42, of impregnating their nanny, Lorraine Gilles, before demanding an abortion. Brown was granted a restraining order against Gilles, but Gilles, in turn, sued her for defamation.
The divorce hearing has been rescheduled to begin on Nov. 6.
Gilles (left, with Brown in July 2016) claimed her pregnancy was the result of a one-night stand. In July, mumof-three Brown (in 2013) was ordered to pay Belafonte $US40,000 per month in temporary spousal support.
