Mel B’s estranged husband, Stephen Belafonte has made fresh accusation against the singer.
According to Belafonte, Mel B takes cocaine in front of their kids as she battles her addiction to drug and alcohol.
In a legal declaration obtained by DailyMail, Belafonte said he feared for the safety of his three children aged six, ten and 18 as his wife’s ‘addiction became a major issue.’
The 42-year-old producer said, “The biggest reason for my concern with respect to the safety of the children was due to the Petitioner’s habitual and consistent addiction to and abuse of cocaine and alcohol.
“To make matters worse, my fear for the children’s safety was amplified due to the fact that Petitioner had fired the children’s nanny, who had been in the children’s lives sine 2010 and I did not want Petitioner using drugs and drinking around the children especially without anyone else present to care for the children.
“Petitioner’s drinking and drug abuse had been a major issue throughout our marriage and was witnessed by the nanny, the children, and her own therapist, Dr Sophy.”
Belafonte, however backed up his declarations with details of their bitter fallout and dozens of text messages between Beverly Hills marriage therapist Dr. Charles Sophy, Mel B and himself.
