Mel B Files for Divorce From Stephen Belafonte After 10 Years of Marriage

Mel B a.k.a. has filed for divorce from husband of nearly 10 years, Stephen Belafonte. The "" judge made the filing on Monday, March 20 at Los Angeles Superior Court, citing "irreconcilable differences."

In divorce papers obtained by Daily Mail, the former Spice Girl listed "joint custody" as she wanted to share responsibility of their 5-year-old daughter Madison. She also requested to terminate the court's ability to award spousal support.

According to PEOPLE, the 41-year-old and her producer husband separated last year on December 28. The couple was just months away from celebrating their 10-year wedding anniversary, having tied the knot in June 2007 after a whirlwind romance.

Rumors swirling several years ago that Stephen had physically abused her, but Mel denied the rumors in 2014. At the time, the former Scary Spice took to social media to say that her producer husband "would never lay a hand on [her]."

News of their divorce comes after the British pop star revealed that her father, Martin Brown, died of cancer. She had been estranged from her family for years due to their disapproval of her relationship with Stephen, but she reunited with her sister Danielle to be with their father in his final moments.
