Back on July 15th, 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.
Mel B’s mom was shut out of her daughter’s life for a decade after she spoke out against her now-estranged husband Stephen Belafonte.
The ex-Spice Girls star and her mother Andrea have now reunited and the 60-year-old property developer from Leeds, England tells Mail Online she “never fell out” with her daughter.
“I just wasn’t in her life for a time because of him (Stephen),” she says, “but now we’re doing OK, which is a relief.”
Though she’s thrilled that Mel initiated the divorce, Andrea is devastated she can’t be in Los Angeles to support her daughter, after she was prevented from boarding a flight at Heathrow Airport on July 20th.
“It was something to do with an exit visa when I had overstayed a visit 10 years ago by one day longer,” she raged. “It’s so frustrating and upsetting. I wanted to be with Melanie for her court hearing…. She needed me there but I couldn’t fly out because my visa has been canceled.
