In recent court documents, Mel B detailed a holiday vacation in Ibiza with estranged husband Stephen Belafonte and former nanny Lorraine Gilles, and there is photographic proof that the getaway did take place!
Paparazzi were able to snap pics of a bikini-clad Mel on board a luxury yacht with Lorraine in March 2016. Though the two flashed smiles in the pics, behind the scenes, it was allegedly a nightmare for the former Spice Girl.
Of the Ibiza getaway, Mel claimed in her declaration, “[Belafonte] informed me that we are all taking a vacation on a boat with Lorraine to Ibiza. I was mortified in that I only wanted a quiet holiday with [him] and the kids. While on the trip [he] resorted to the same name calling, screaming, yelling and demeaning conduct again done in the presence of Lorraine.”
"I would leave the boat daily to go to the gym in an effort to get away from [him] and Lorraine,” she revealed about the vacation, which was just weeks before she fired Lorraine. "I told her she would be terminated effective September 1, 2016. She actually laughed at me. [Belafonte] again went off on me saying that she is not 'fired' and that Lorraine is 'the only person in my life that I trust’."
Aside from detailing the trip, Mel also accused Belafonte of physical abuse, extortion and impregnating Lorraine. Stephen “vehemently denies” her allegations, saying they are “outrageous” and “unfounded.”
Mel’s sister Danielle is also bashing Belafonte, writing on Instagram on Thursday, "8 years of abusive calls me and my mum have had stating we would never see Melanie again. I am laughing and celebrating as you were wrong. You are a sorry excuse of a man.”
Along with Belafonte, Danielle also called out Lorraine, who she hopes will "go to jail and rot in hell !!”

Mel’s friend Sharon Osbourne recently weighed in on all the drama and commented on the mysterious marks on her body at the 2014 taping of UK’s “The X Factor.” In the court papers, she claimed that they were caused by Stephen. Sharon shared on “The Talk” on Wednesday, “Three years ago, in the final two days of 'X Factor,' she didn’t make the first day and she was in the hospital. And it was reported in all the papers that said ‘allegedly’ she’s been beaten by her husband. And she came back for the final day and she had a black eye and bruising everywhere, but she made the final.” Watch.
Sharon pointed out, "This has been brewing and people talking for a very, very long time. You know what? She’s a good girl. She’s a great mother. She works her bum off.”
"In the situation that she’s been in for 10 years, it’s not just physical, it’s mental abuse, too,” Osbourne went on to say.
