Stephen Belafonte Gives His Side On His Breakup With Mel B
There are always two sides to every story. And today we gave one man the chance to speak up and recount what he believes to be his truth regarding some pretty serious circumstances and allegations.
If you’ve been reading the news recently, you might have heard some of the claims that former Spice Girl Mel B has had to say about her ex-husband Stephen Belafonte.
The pair were married in June 2007 but after 10 years of marriage the pair eventually divorced in December last year.
It's become quite clear over the past year that the pair had a very messy split, but in more recent times Mel has come forward in various interviews and her latest book ‘Brutally Honest’ to give specific example, claiming that Stephen had been violent towards her and had scarred her mentally.
But as we said, there are always two sides to every story. And today, Stephen Belafonte spoke exclusively with Kyle and Jackie O to air what he believes to be his version.
While speaking with us, Stephen detailed the moment their breakup turned sour, the tough legal battle that he had to face involving his family, and actually claimed that Mel was the one who had turned their relationship toxic.
He said that he had remained quiet for so long with his version of events because he didn’t feel it was right to speak publicly about his marital issues due to the effect it could have on his kids.
However, the recent book was the final straw for Belafonte and he has chosen to speak out now in an attempt to clear his name.
“I’m not a guy to go out there and put anyone’s business on the street and I didn’t do it for two years,” he said.
“I took all the bows and arrows, I took all the rocks, the whatever have you, and I still didn’t do it.
“I wouldn’t have done it, had this book not come out,” he continued. “I would’ve taken those things to the grave with me and done it for my kids. I did not want my kids reading this.”
But today Stephen Belafonte opened up and left us quite speechless with some of the things that he had to say.
And it was actually the moment that Belafonte was speaking about his kids and how he almost lost them during the legal battle when he became so emotional that he was almost brought to tears.
