Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown has filed for divorce from her husband of ten years, Stephen Belafonte.
Their relationship has been turbulent in recent years. Back in 2014, Mel showed up for an "X Factor" taping with what looked to be bruises. The couple denied all suggestions of strife.
Fast forward to now, and just last month she expressed her deep love for Belafonte, who she married in 2007, on Instagram. She then said they'd "been through everything that would normally tear couples apart."
Either way, “People" reports that on divorce papers, the "America's Got Talent" judge listed December 28th as the date of their separation and is requesting joint legal and physical custody of their five-year-old daughter Madison.
