Mel B returns to social media after a month hiatus

Mel B returns to social media after a month hiatus

According to TMZ, the filing came around the same time that the Spice Girls member obtained a court order to see the contents of a storage locker owned by Gilles.

TMZ is reporting today that Mel spent much of the past week attempting to gain access to a storage unit belonging to her former nanny, Lorraine Gilles, which she believes contains the only copy of the racy footage.

The former Spice Girls star previously claimed her estranged husband, Stephen Belafonte, impregnated child minder Lorraine Gilles and urged her to get an abortion after Mel scoffed at an idea to let her and her child live with them. Earlier this week TMZ reported that Belafonte has filed for divorce from Brown, seeking spousal support and citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for his petition, the same one cited by the singer.

Despite Mel's explicit claims of abuse, Stephen is denying all the allegations.

Belafonte has been ordered by authorities to leave the family's Los Angeles home and to stay away from Brown and her three daughters: Phoenix, 18, Angel, 10, and 5-year-old Madison. "It will be clear to everyone that there are no sex tapes in the storage ..."

Belafonte's lawyer Grace Jamra accused Mel B of creating "high drama" as the split, initiated by Mel B amid claims Belafonte had abused her physically and mentally for a decade, becomes increasingly acrimonious. But he allegedly threatened to destroy her career by releasing sex tapes and take her children.

Mel B said that Gilles admitted to having the videos and said she'd give them to 41-year-old film producer, who allegedly got her pregnant during an affair. He also alleged that someone must be making a lot of money over the allegations.

He continued: "Obviously, you saw my house got raided and nobody found anything. But we'll have our day in court".

She has since kept a low profile on social media as she deals with the court settlement.
