Mel B ordered to pay estranged husband, $40k per month in spousal support

In the latest installment of Melanie “Mel B” Brown and Stephen Belafonte’s sordid divorce drama, the “America’s Got Talent” judge is now reportedly required to pay her estranged husband $40,000 a month.

Following Belafonte’s request for emergency spousal support (to which Brown staunchly replied that he should “get a job”), a judge in Los Angeles recently filed a court-ordered mandate that backs his appeal, TMZ said Friday.

Per the judge’s order, Brown must temporarily subsidize a number of Belafonte’s living expenses — food, housing, phone, etc. — plus pay him an additional $140,000 to cover his legal fees. She must pay the temporary monthly stipend until the divorce settlement is finalized.

After nearly 10 years of marriage, Brown filed for divorce from Belafonte in March, 2017. When Brown’s allegations of physical and emotional abusesurfaced in early April, she filed for a temporary restraining order against Belafonte.
