A Court has ordered former Spice Girl, Mel B to pay her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte $40,000 a month in spousal support until both sides work out their final divorce settlement. Mel B who is divorcing Stephen after ten years of marriage, cited irreconcilable differences in legal papers filed at Los Angeles Superior Court. She also revealed in divorce documents he got their children’s nanny pregnant.
A court has now ordered her to pay him $40,000 a month. Stephen’s request for emergency spousal support was granted by a judge who agreed that he needs help paying for food, housing and his phone, among other things.
TMZ reports that it could have been worse for Mel B as she could be have been forced to pay $15k more per month but the judge cut her a break.
“The order also includes a one-time payment of $140,000 for Stephen’s legal fees. So, Mel will have to cut a check for that, plus $40k monthly, until both sides work out their final divorce settlement. Mel argued last month that Stephen’s financial requests were ridiculous and he needed to get a job. Looks like he can afford to be picky about work … for a while at least.”
