Friends were shocked when Mel filed a restraining order alleging that Belafonte beat and abused her and forced her into threesomes with “random women.” One friend told us, “Forced into threesomes for nine years? She was totally participating on her own free will. She’s very sexual herself and likes girls.He’s supersexual and will b..g anything.”
Mel also claims in the restraining order that Belafonte impregnated their German nanny Lorraine Gilles while they were married and demanded she have an abortion.
The source continued of Mel and Belafonte, “They would get into fights, but I thought they’d stay together . . . They were always into each other like an addiction.” Belafonte became a franchise owner in the West Hollywood, Calif., restaurant Serafina Sunset, and a source said, “They would block off the room upstairs and have these intense fights and screaming matches while customers were in the restaurant.”
Serafina reps didn’t comment.
Sharon Osbourne revealed on Friday that Belafonte beat Mel so badly three years ago when they were filming a TV show that she was hospitalized. “She came back for the final day and she had a black eye and bruising everywhere.”
On Friday, lawyers for Mel B, who filed for divorce last month, went to court to prevent Belafonte from releasing any sex tapes or sexually explicit photos of her. TMZ reported that Belafonte repeatedly threatened to release the sex tapes in an attempt to control her. The site also claims he has taken all of her Spice Girls memorabilia, along with the sex tapes, and hidden it all in a secret LA storage locker.
Reps for Mel B and Belafonte did not comment. But Belafonte said earlier this week, “I’m shocked at those allegations . . . I think someone’s set me up to look like a bad guy . . . It’s accusation after accusation. But we’ll have our day in court . . . We were friends two weeks ago. And now, all of a sudden, the team gets around and now it’s got to be this.”
