Mel B has hit back at claims that her husband is a bully. The former Spice Girl, who married movie producer Stephen Belafonte in 2007, addressed recent reports that she has fallen out with mum Andrea and sister Danielle over her relationship with him.
Earlier this month, Danielle said: “[We] had concerns about her husband Stephen. Ever since we expressed those concerns, we’ve not heard anything from her. I just hope I will speak to Melanie again because she’s my only sister. “I miss her and my nieces ridiculously. It hurts… I don’t have her number, I don’t know where she lives — I wouldn’t know how to get in touch with her.” Mel B told Fabulous Magazine: “I love my family — simple as that —but my own family comes first, completely. Stephen comes first with my kids, completely. “People are always going to judge what they don’t understand or know about, and I think [my sister and mother] are obviously very unhappy and I feel sorry for [them].”
