HOMELESS MEL B… LIVING WITH HER MUM!
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.
