MEL B’s estranged husband has desperately begged his wife for a “cash advance” in new papers as their divorce battle becomes increasingly strained.
Lawyers acting for Stephen Belafonte, 41, have insisted he needs funds for “living expenses” from the ex Spice Girl.But Mel, also 41, has turned down his request, instead accused him of stealing £800,000 from her – a claim Belafonte denies.
According to the UK Sun,Mel’s lawyer says in new court papers:
“He has plenty of funds I assume from the amounts he has earned and continues to earn (and taken) to pay for his expenses.
“We do not believe your client is entitled to much, if any, of the community, but will owe Mel for the amounts he has taken from her without her knowledge or consent.”
The Sun has revealed that Belafonte has told pals he is skint since his dramatic split with Mel last month.
