Melanie Janine Brown, also known as Mel B or Melanie B, is an English singer, songwriter, television personality, dancer, actress and model. Mel B rose to fame as a member of the famous girl group, Spice Girls. The 42 year old was formerly known as Scary Spice and she might have got a little more intimidating after reportedly cutting out a piece of her flesh in order to remove her husband’s name from her body.
Mel B got married to Stephen Belafonte back in 2007 and it seems like their ten year union is coming to an end. It was during their relationship when Mel B got a tattoo of Stephen’s name on her body. The tattoo read: ‘Stephen, till death do us part you own my heart.’
While the traditional method of removing a tattoo has long been laser removal, Mel B went about it her own way. She decided to cut out a chunk of her torso in order to get the word ‘Stephen’ removed from her body. It was back in March of 2017 when Mel B filed for divorce based on ‘irreconcilable differences.’ She also asked for joint legal custody of their six year old daughter, Madison, and asked to terminate spousal support for Stephen.
Mel B later blocked Stephen from accessing their bank accounts which she claimed was entirely controlled by Stephen during their marriage. She later claimed that Stephen beat her and sexually exploited her and was able to successfully get a restraining order against him. Stephen has responded by saying that Mel B is starting a ‘smear campaign’ against him and that her allegations and claims of getting the nanny pregnant are ‘outrageous and unfounded.’ After an eight month long court battle, the case was settled and a deal was struck. Stephen’s lawyer, Grace Jamra, told the Los Angeles Judge, Mark Juhas, ‘all the issues before you including the domestic violence restraining order and custody of a minor child have been dissolved.’
