The singer, who filed for divorce from the producer last month, says that the physical and psychological abuse started in the first year of their marriage, in 2007.
It also reported that Stephen allegedly punched the star and split her lip after "flying into a jealous rage" over Mel filming a segment with Usher when filming for The X Factor. When she asked how she was supposed to appear on-camera with the injury, he said she should have thought of that before deciding to "flirt with and f*** Usher", TMZ reports. She said he threatened "violence" and "to destroy [her] life" every time she tried to end the marriage. She says that he got their nanny pregnant and suggested all of them live together, though ultimately, she claims, Belafonte demanded the nanny terminate the pregnancy.
Mel alleges that afterwards, he paid $300,000 of her personal money in order to get the nanny to undergo an abortion. He allegedly persuaded her into unwanted threesomes and sexual acts with "random women" by threatening to blackmail her by releasing their private sex tapes to the public. She wrote that Belafonte was verbally abusive to her a year ago while she was on a trip to London during filming of "America's Got Talent".
It can be recalled that earlier of March, Mel B filed a divorce against Belafonte in which her husband reportedly responded saying that he "felt f*cking better" about it.
