Mel B Claims Her Husband ‘Punched’ and ‘Choked’ Her

Mel B has had a rough few weeks. Her father Martin Brown died of cancer last month. Then she filed for divorce from her husband Stephen Belafonte. Soon after her brother-in-law Jeremiah Stansbury revealed explosive allegations about her 10-year marriage in a tell-all to a U.K. tabloid.

Now the 41-year-old former Spice Girl’s divorce has taken an ugly turn. On Monday she got a temporary restraining order preventing her estranged husband from coming near her or her three children – Phoenix, 18, Angel, 10 and Madison, five. And the details listed in the 20-page court papers are truly horrifying.
