Ex fears Mel B will not find love again

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Watts The Goss - EX­CLU­SIVE BY HALINA WATTS Show­biz Ed­i­tor

AN ex-lover of Mel B be­lieves her de­struc­tive mar­riage to Stephen Be­la­fonte means she will never find love again.

Play­girl model Danny Lopes, 36, had a whirl­wind ro­mance with Mel and fears the star can no longer trust peo­ple. He said the 43-year-old Spice Girl’s bit­ter break up “has left her un­able to trust anyone fully and let them into her heart.

“Mel will go so far, and then pull back emo­tion­ally – and that hap­pened with me. It breaks my heart be­cause Mel has so much to of­fer as a part­ner. She told me she loved me, I told her the same, but while phys­i­cally we were a nat­u­ral fit, she just pulled away from tak­ing things fur­ther.

“She has just be­come so para­noid and has a mas­sive trust is­sue with peo­ple, es­pe­cially with me.”

The singer dumped him af­ter a re­la­tion­ship ear­lier this year.

But Danny, who also has a suc­cess­ful art ca­reer and worked with di­rec­tor Dante To­maselli on The Doll and Hor­ror, also re­calls lighter mo­ments in their re­la­tion­ship. On one oc­ca­sion Mel’s pet goat Phyl­lis walked in on them as they were hav­ing sex.

He said: “It was hi­lar­i­ous like she was giv­ing us her seal of ap­proval. It was so weird but we just laid there laugh­ing.”
