It was reported on March 20 that Mel B has filed for divorce from her husband of 10 years, Stephen Belafonte. Now it is being heard that Belafonte was seen getting drunk and ranting at an LA restaurant late into the night following his estranged wife's decision.
According to The Sun, Stephen Belafonte was seen gulping down one glass of vodka after the next and ranting loudly in the middle of the LA restaurant, owned by Belafonte and his soon-to-be ex-wife, Mel B. The US film producer even snapped back at the diner who went to check if Belafonte was alright. "I've felt f****** better!" replied Belafonte curtly before waving the diner away.
Mel B, on the other hand, is relatively coping with the big change in her life better than her husband. Soon after she filed for divorce, she was seen up and about LA without her wedding ring on her finger.
The reason stated behind the divorce was "irreconcilable differences" in their marriage, which is just as well because the couple had been seeking marriage counseling. People in both Mel B's personal and professional life bore witness to the loud "screaming matches" whenever she spoke to her husband on the phone or face to face.
The decision to file for divorce came days after Mel B's father passed away, a loss that is said to have given her clarity in life, Metro reported. It was earlier reported that the recent rows between the two were mainly because of her 40M pounds fortune. However, it is now being disclosed that it could have been due to Stephen Belafonte's jealous and possessive attitude.
Some of the neighbors told The Sun that Mel B and Belafonte had been having heated arguments all the time lately regarding some mystery man. "He was obsessed with her phone and asking, 'Why is he calling you back?'" a source revealed. "It sounded like he was looking at her phone. It was just really loud. It sounded like jealousy or paranoia."
Mel B and Stephen Belafonte have a 5-year-old daughter, Madison together. Mel B has requested to share a joint custody of their daughter.© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
