Mel B Shuts Down Rumors That Her Husband Abuses Her
According to Billboard, after weeks festering rumors, former Spice Girl Mel B has commented on the speculation that her husband of seven years, Stephen Belafonte, abuses her.
In no uncertain terms, Melanie Brown shot the rumors down on Instagram: "I'm very good was very polly but much better now and for the record my hubby never would lay a hand on me sorry took so long but any response fuels rumors."
Mel B was rushed to the hospital earlier this month, after which she appeared on the U.K. X Factor finale (she's a judge on the show). Noting what appeared to be bruises on her body, fans and some media outlets speculated that she might be the victim of spousal abuse. But according to Scary Spice herself, that's just not true.
Prior to commenting on the claims, Mel B posted this all-smiles family Christmas photo to her Instagram:
