Spice Girl Mel B is staring at the possibility of having to file for bankruptcy after a Los Angeles judge ordered her to pay $500,000 to pay ex-husband, Stephen Belafonte. She is currently asking the judge to modify the order and says that ‘I simply do not have the ability to pay such an exorbitant sum.”
Mel and Belafonte divorced three years ago and have been in a contentious legal battle ever since. She has abandoned her efforts to move her eight-year-old daughter to the UK to live with her because she can’t afford the fees to continue the legal battle. Meanwhile, Belafonte vehemently opposes the move and wants full custody of Madison.
‘Melanie is doing everything she can to comply with the September 18 court order and not bankrupt herself,’ her lawyer said. She is currently not making any money while the pandemic continues.
