Simon Cowell defends Mel B during divorce from Stephen Belafonte: 'She's astonishing'

"Spice Girls" member Mel B recently revealed that her estranged husband, Stephen Belafonte, forced her to engage in a threesome with their nanny.

Looking exhausted and drawn, Mel B appeared a shadow of her former self as she arrived at LAX last week, in pictures you can see in this week's Now magazine. Now Simon Cowell, who Mel B has closely worked with for a number of years on various shows such as The X Factor and America's Got Talent, has also made a decision to relay a sweet message to her so that she knows he's behind her.

The makeup artist also added that Belafonte's verbal abuse, in addition, also extended to their children, and he would overhear him calling Mel "disgusting and ugly".

Now, a report saying the singer's make-up artist is confirming claims that the entertainer suffered abuse from her Belafonte. TMZ previously reported she additionally requested sole legal and physical custody of Madison.

Just a few months after their nuptials, Mel alleged that Stephen choked her and slammed her to the ground as she prepared for the season finale of "Dancing with the Stars" in November 2007. According to TMZ, Belafonte's home was searched on Friday by the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives after his own brother claimed he had a gun, but ATF agents left empty handed.

Moreover, they claim that while Mel might allow monitored visits with Madison in the future, she doesn't want Belafonte having contact with her other children. "I desperately wanted to leave the relationship and tried to do so during our first year of marriage and every year thereafter".

The details surrounding Mel B's separation from husband of ten years, Stephen Belafonte, are deeply, deeply disturbing.

She has accused him of abuse and filed a restraining order against him.

"Belafonte is asking for spousal support, though it's premature to set a figure". 'I will do anything I can to help Mel in her fight, ' she said.

Mel was spotted leaving her lawyer's office for a second day in a row on Thursday as she prepares to take on a messy divorce battle with Belafonte.

"She wrote in her divorce papers: "[Stephen] would degrade me in front of her by comparing me to Lorraine, telling me how much younger and better looking she was".
