Mel B is having none of ex-husband Stephen Belafonte’s spousal support demands.
The America’s Got Talent judge is also objecting to Belafonte’s request for $2,000 per month for clothing, $11,000 per month for housing and $750 for a monthly cell phone bill. Mel B calls the cellphone bill an “exorbitant” cost for one device.
Mel B also told Belafonte, who co-owns Los Angeles restaurant Serafina, that if he wasn’t making enough money he should “get a job in a different restaurant.”
Belafonte claims that he is currently homeless and broke and that the couple’s public divorce has cost him $500,000 in earnings. Belafonte said in court documents that “we lived a very comfortable, upper-class lifestyle … money was never an obstacle.”
Mel B filed for divorce from the film producer in March after nearly a decade of marriage and has accused him of infidelity and domestic violence.
Belafonte lost custody and visitation rights for the couple’s 5-year-old daughter, Madison, in April. Mel B was also granted a restraining order against her ex.
