Former Spice Girl Mel B is one of the most beautiful women in the world. She was seen by many in both England and the United States as the STANDARD OF BEAUTY for many women. But that was a long time ago.
Now she looks like HELL.
Mel is in the midst of a bitter divorce/custody dispute with er ex Stephen Belafonte. Stephen alleged that Mel was hooked on HARD drugs, and believed in unconventional s*x practices. Mel countered, claiming that Stephen abused her.
We're not sure if it's alleged drug use - or just the stress - but she looks BAD.
Mel's one-time friend Derek Craig Daniel made claims in court docs saying she had 'repeatedly told [him] that everyone including her would be better off if Stephen was in jail or dead,' during a February 28 chat at a restaurant, The Blast reported.
Daniel said, 'I found the statements to be alarming and it was obvious to me that Melanie was soliciting me to either harm or find someone to help her harm Stephen' amid their costly, messy divorce, fraught with allegations of cheating and violence.
Belafonte, 43, has asked the court to force Mel to fork over $1 million to catch up on his legal bills, in addition to hiking up his spousal support.
He currently is forced to keep at least 100 yards away from Mel B after the court issued her a temporary restraining order following a tense run-in last month.
The two initially filed for divorce in March of last year, putting an end to their relationship which lasted nearly a decade.
