Mel B accused of pressurising witness into claiming Stephen Belafonte assaulted her

ANI  |  Washington D.C. [U.S.A.] 

It seems like all is not well for former Spice Girls member Mel B.

The Police Department is now looking at claims that Mel B tampered with a witness allegedly involved in her legal battles, according to E! Online.

This claim comes in her legal battle against ex-husband Stephen Belafonte and their former nanny, Lorraine Gilles.

Rapper Siya has filed a police report of witness intimidation on Monday claiming Mel B sent her messages associated with restraining order cases against Gilles and Belafonte.

A spokesperson of the LAPD has confirmed that alleged threats were made via text messages and that the case is ongoing.

It was reported that Siya was ready to testify against Mel refuting claims that Belafonte abused her throughout their marriage and information regarding the sexual relationship Gilles said she had with Mel B and Belafonte.

It should be noted that Mel, 42, accused Belafonte of domestic abuse throughout their 10-year marriage, while she also accused him of having an affair with their nanny Lorraine Gilles and getting her pregnant.

Belafonte has denied all these claims.
