Hello! Middle East - - THE INSIDE STORY -

There was no need to read be­tween the lines when Melanie Brown ar­rived at one of a se­ries of book sign­ings for her au­to­bi­og­ra­phy Bru­tally Hon­est.

Much of the fo­cus of Mel’s book is her decade-long mar­riage to Stephen Be­la­fonte, which she re­ferred to on In­sta­gram as “10 years of pain”.

Mel filed for di­vorce in March 2017 and the cou­ple reached a fi­nal set­tle­ment in Au­gust this year.

In a spe­cial pub­li­ca­tion-day post, the singer wrote: “This has taken 2 years of blood sweat and ALOT of tears to write.”

She later thanked fans for their sup­port by shar­ing an im­age in which she was sur­rounded by flow­ers and gifts (right).

“All your love and sup­port has been over­whelm­ing. I didn’t ex­pect sooo much if any so thank you from the bot­tom of my heart,” she said in the cap­tion.

The event took place in the wake of news that film pro­ducer Stephen, with whom Mel has a daugh­ter, seven-year-old Madi­son, plans to launch le­gal ac­tion against his former wife in re­sponse to her book’s claims.
