Em­bat­tled Spice Girl Mel B has been blind­sided after her ex-hus­band was gifted more than $275,000 to help buy an LA man­sion by the nanny who de­stroyed their mar­riage – while Mel con­tin­ues to live with her mum in a cramped UK home.

Lor­raine Gilles, 29, gave 45-year-old Stephen Be­la­fonte the gen­er­ous “gift” to buy his $2 mil­lion five-bed­room home, just months after Mel was forced to pay out more than $3 mil­lion to the for­mer nanny fol­low­ing a bit­ter defama­tion law­suit.

“It’s ex­tremely galling for Mel to see this when she hasn’t got any money to buy a house of her own,” an in­sider told a UK pub­li­ca­tion re­cently.

The 45-year-old singer, who wrote in her 2018 mem­oir Bru­tally Hon­est that she was left with just un­der $2000 in the bank when she walked away from Stephen, says she cur­rently lives with her three chil­dren – Phoenix, 21, An­gel, 13, and Madi­son, nine – “like sheep” in her mother’s York­shire bun­ga­low in Eng­land.
