Mel B’s husband is so broke following their split he is now homeless having to sleep on friends’ sofas.
Stephen Belafonte claims he is now unable to afford a place of his own after being kicked out the marital home in March and running up a $60,000 bill on his credit card.
The film producer, who the Spice Girl claims sexually exploited and beat her during their 10-year marriage, has filed legal documents in LA outlining his financial crisis.
Belafonte alleges Mel is making it difficult for him to live including purposely making the sale of their $8 million home difficult.
He claims an American football player was interested in their Los Angeles home, but the singer refused to show him round.Although Belafonte, 41, does not reveal how much he wants in spousal support he describes the life he had before Mel filed for divorce.
He said: “We lived a very comfortable-class lifestyle … money was never an obstacle.”
Belafonte claimed his ex-wife was making up to $250,000 a month.
He said in 2015 she earned $1.58 million from “America’s Got Talent” adding she receives $300,000 form her endorsement of US diet queen Jenny Craig and a further $400,000 for other deals.
Belafonte wants at least $200,000 for his divorce lawyers and $55,000 for his accountant.
