Cape Town – Mel B has reportedly filed for divorce from husband Stephen Belafonte after almost 10 years of marriage.

According to Daily Mail the X Factor UK judge filed papers on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences. She also filed for joint custody of their 5-year-old daughter, Madison.

The couple wed in Las Vegas in 2007 and then renewed their wedding vows in front of their family members in November 2008 in Egypt.

As happy as the couple looked at their lavish ceremony, their marriage hasn’t been smooth sailing. 

In 2014, rumours spread that Stephen was physically abusive towards Mel B after she appeared on the X Factor UK with bruises and scratches on her face and arms. Stephen denied the allegations and the couple seemed to patch things up.

In a new report, Daily Mail states Mel B filed for divorce in a moment of clarity after her father’s recent death.

According to friends of the 41-year-old, her father’s death opened her eyes and was the final push she needed to end her marriage.
