Stephen Belafonte has filed a response to the divorce petition filed by his estranged wife Mel B and he is asking a judge to grant him spousal support.
According to the documents obtained by the Daily Mail, Belafonte, 41, said that their date of separation was March 1 this year, but Mel B says it was December 28, 2016.
Both parties have seeking to avoid paying the other support and Belafonte is asking for Mel B to pay his legal fees. In addition to spousal support, he requesting joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s daughter, Madison, 5.
When Mel B filed for divorce she also asked for joint custody, but earlier this week, in her restraining order docs, she asked for sole legal and physical custody.
Belafonte’s lawyers told TMZ on Wednesday, April 5, that Brown’s allegations are “outrageous and unfounded.”
