X Factor judge, Mel B’s appearance on the show’s finale on Sunday (December 14, 2014) without her wedding ring, has led fans to the conclusion that her seven year marriage to American movie producer, Stephen Belafonte is hanging by a thread.
The 39 year old former Spice girl reportedly packed up and left the home the couple have been sharing in London after their furious arguments became too much to bear.
The claims come as Mel has been unveiled as the new cover star for Grazia’s Christmas issue, to whom she admitted that she was three hours late for the shoot because she’d had an argument with Stephen, 39.
The magazine quotes her as saying: ‘I walked in pi**ed off because I had a big row with my husband about stupid stuff. Sometimes he pi**es me off like no other, but he gets me.’
A well-placed source on The X Factor said that Stephen didn’t visit his wife during the three days she spent in hospital, or attend the X Factor final on Sunday.
Another source revealed that friends are pressuring her to leave her husband for good this time “because they don’t believe their relationship is healthy.”
