Yesterday it was reported, Stephen Belafonte‘s request for emergency spousal support was granted by a judge who agrees … he needs help paying for food, housing and his phone, among other things. It could have been worse for Mel. According to docs, she could have been forced to pay $15k more per month — based on income and expenses — but the judge cut her a break.
The order also includes a one-time payment of $140,000 for Stephen’s legal fees. So, Mel will have to cut a check for that, plus $40k monthly, until both sides work out their final divorce settlement.
Mel B’s mother reacts to the news.
Mel B’s mom is “disgusted” with the court order instructing her daughter to pay her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte $40,000 a month in emergency spousal support.
According to TMZ, the Spice Girls star has also been ordered to cough up a one time payment of $140,000 to cover Stephen’s legal fees, and her mother Andrea has blasted the decision.
She wrote on Twitter: “This would never happen in England disgusted with this news.”
