Her ex­plo­sive di­vorce con­tin­ues to dom­i­nate head­lines and last week Mel B faced fresh al­le­ga­tions from her estranged hus­band Stephen Be­la­fonte, 42, that she took co­caine and drank in front of her chil­dren – Phoenix, 18, An­gel, 10, and Madi­son, six. The court doc­u­ments claim Mel, 42, who ended her 10-year mar­riage in March, had ther­apy to help with her al­leged “ad­dic­tion” and that she had a “ha­bit­ual and con­sis­tent” ad­dic­tion to drugs, which left Stephen fear­ing for the “safety” of their fam­ily.

He claimed the for­mer Spice Girl’s drink­ing and drug abuse had been a ma­jor is­sue through­out her mar­riage and was wit­nessed by their for­mer nanny, Lor­raine Gilles, 26 – who is su­ing Mel for £1.6m for defama­tion af­ter the star claimed she had an af­fair with Stephen.

Last week it was re­ported her for­mer band mates, in­clud­ing Vic­to­ria Beck­ham, could be char­ac­ter wit­nesses for Mel in the di­vorce case – which could re­port­edly bank­rupt her.

To make mat­ters worse, Mel – who is cur­rently a judge on Amer­ica’s Got Ta­lent – was branded a home-wrecker last week af­ter claims sur­faced that her po­lice of­fi­cer boyfriend of just a few weeks is mar­ried.
