Rumors are circulating that Mel B and her husband Stephen Belafonte may have called it quits. And to add fuel to the fire, Mel B’s mother blasted Stephen on Twitter for being abusive, following Stephen’s denial that he abuses his wife. Deets inside….
This time of year couples are usually spending more time together and make holiday memories. But for one couple, it seems things are falling apart.
Rumors are circulating that former Spice Girl and “X Factor” judge Mel B and her husband Stephen Belafonte may be calling it quits soon. It’s reported she postponed her eye surgery procedure (she recently revealed she has been blind in one eye) as she tries to sort out a possible divorce from her film producer husband.
Sources close to Mel reveal she may really be done with her husband of 7 years. The source told the Daily Mirror,
“At the moment she is discussing divorce. She knows this isn’t the easiest option. It’s going to be tough. But she knows her marriage is over.”
Last week, fans grew concerned over Mel B’s appearance on the “X Factor”, once she appeared on the show after missing the first live show on Dec. 13th. Following a hospital stay, the 39-year-old singer returned to the show on Dec. 14th and she had bruises on her face, a bruise on her cheek and scratches on her arms. A source close to the "X Factor" show revealed Stephen didn't even come to visit her during her three-day hospital stint.
"Mel hasn't spoken to Stephen once since her admission to hospital last week and as it stands she doesn't want to see him. He didn't come to the hospital at all. The fact that he left the country before she'd even gone back on X Factor is another sign of just how bad things have become between them."
Fans instantly accused Stephen of abusing her, but he vehemently denied it, hopping on Twitter to refute the rumors. Now...Mel B's estranged mother Andrea Brown is joining in on the abuse allegations. She first praised the fact that her son-in-law may be out of her life for good, then she sent a tweet that alludes he may be abusing her daughter. She tweeted:
Damn...this is getting messy....

Nicki Minaj and her ex-beau Safaree "SB" Samuels were spilling relationship tip on Twitter last night. Also on Twitter, Mel B's mother blasts her daughter's husband Stephen Belafonte and she's hinting at him being abusive. More inside….
This break-up between Nicki Minaj and her ex-boyfriend Safaree “SB” Samuels just took a turn…for the worst. Anytime indirect (or direct) conversations happen on Twitter, they normally end badly.
Well…that’s sort of what happened with Nicki & SB. The twosome engaged in an indirect Twitter exchange last night. And it came with a little insight on what their 10-year relationship was like.
It seems Nicki isn’t really over Safaree and Safaree isn’t over Nicki. Earlier this week, the Head Barb was making her media rounds to promote her new album The Pinkprint. During an interview with Angie Martinez on Power 105, Nicki broke down in tears while talking about her boyfriend of 10-years SB. She also hinted that his thirst for "fame" was one of the primary reasons they broke up.
Now the two are airing out their dirty laundry on Twitter. Nicki claims SB is trying to blackmail her and is still hinting at their break-up being cause by fame. Peep her tweets (read from the bottom up):
Safaree responded to Nicki indirectly but it was clear who he was talking to. He said he has no idea what she's talking about when she says he's trying to blackmail her. He also said, he wished she would have just called him instead of putting her thoughts on Twitter. Check his tweets (read from the bottom up):
SB hopped on the phone with her moms! Love makes you do some crazy things....doesn't it?

We’re days away before Christmas 2014. But Christmas came a little early in a NYC borough. The “Christmas in Brooklyn” concert went down at the Barclays Center last night. Peep pics and performances by K. Michelle, LL Cool J, Diggy Simmons, Run DMC and more inside…..
The “Christmas In Brooklyn” concert went down at the Barclays Center last night. And it brought a stellar performance from reality star/Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart? singer K. Michelle.
K slipped into a black shimmery romper before hitting the stage to belt out her R&B tunes. The “Maybe I Should Call” singer performed a few tracks from her debut album, which included her single “Can’t Raise A Man” and her radio hit “V.S.O.P.”
Also hitting the stage....
G.O.A.T. rapper LL Cool J rocked the stage with a few of his legendary hits including “Doin’ It Well” before bringing out surprise guest Bell Biv Devoe. The former New Edition members rocked the stage with their performance of the classic hit “Poison” which set the crowd off.
Soon after, LL brought his former rap-nemesis Canibus, where they performed “4,3,2,1”— the track that sparked their feud back in the 90s. The legendary rapper also brought out EPMD, Troy Ave and freestyle rapper Murda Mook.
But before he hit the stage:
He was spotted backstage with his daughter Samaria Smith for a little daddy-daughter time.
And Bell Biv Devoe was spotted backstage posing it up with rapper Fat Joe.
Back on stage:
Diggy Simmons hit the stage to perform his freestyle to Nas’ 2002 hit single “Made You Look”.
And to close out the show, iconic rap group Run DMC took the stage to rock out to a slew of their hits including “My ADIDAS”, “Walk This Way” and “Run’s House”. The duo, along with his sons, took a moment for a special tribute to the late Jam Master Jay who was gunned down in 2002.
Run's daughter and Diggy's big sis Angela was there to support:
And she chilled backstage with Olympian Sanya Richards-Ross.
