The plot of this divorce… Mel B’s former nanny — the one her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte got pregnant — is allegedly now extorting her. Mel B has taken out a restraining order against her.
We’ve learned Mel B’s lawyers got a court order to gain access to a storage locker rented by Lorraine Gilles, the nanny in question. Mel B claims the locker contains sex tapes and photos Lorraine and Mel B’s estranged husband, Stephen Belafonte, threatened to make public in an effort to destroy her life.
Mel B also says the locker contains boxes and boxes of Spice Girls memorabilia and photos of her recently deceased father.
Mel B flat-out accuses Lorraine and Stephen of extortion. According to the docs, in January 2015 Mel B worked up the courage to fire Lorraine but Stephen went ballistic, calling Lorraine his “ride or die bitch.”
Mel B says Stephen threatened to release the sex videos unless she rehired her with a raise, and Stephen looked at Lorraine and said, “Isn’t that right, Lorraine,” and Lorraine responded, “Yes.” Mel B says Lorraine acknowledged she had the videos and would give them to Stephen.
A judge ordered Lorraine to not harass Mel B and to stay 100 yards clear. The judge also ordered her not to remove any property from the Public Storage locker.
