Mel B’s former nanny is reportedly filing a lawsuit against the star, following accusations of sleeping with her husband Stephen Belafonte.
The former Spice Girls singer previously claimed nanny Lorraine Gilles slept with her husband Stephen and even had an abortion after becoming pregnant with his child, having been paid off with $300,000.
While the nanny’s sister has hit back at the claims saying she had nothing but ‘positive experiences’ working for the couple, Lorraine is reportedly taking drastic action by filing a lawsuit against them.

According to TMZ , Lorraine’s lawsuit focuses on the claims in court papers about having an affair with her husband and becoming pregnant with his child.
Mel B filed for divorce from her husband on March 20 following 10 years of marriage.
A 20-page document then surfaced alleging a shocking amount of abuse claims, including accusations of assault and forced threesomes.
In the court documents, she claimed Belafonte told him about Lorraine being pregnant with his child, stating: ‘[He] told me he wanted her to have the baby and all three of us live together. I was shocked and in disbelief.
‘[He] later demanded that Lorraine had an abortion. Respondent used money earned by me to pay for Lorraine’s abortion, and he used money earned by me to pay for Lorraine’s hotel stay while she recuperated from the procedure.’
Belafonte has since hit back against all the claims, saying in a statement: ‘When the court determines the truth, it will become clear that this entire charade was nothing more than a smear campaign intended to cover up Ms. Brown’s own conduct during the marriage in light of her current involvement with a family television show, and in an effort to unfairly gain leverage both financially and with respect to custody of the children.’
