Lorraine Gilles is the former nanny to Mel B and Stephen Belafonte’s children. The singer alleges that Belafonte impregnated Gilles and gave her money. I have zero clue about who any of these three people are, but the internet does, so here we are. I’m here to serve.
The 25-year-old Gilles has been the couple’s nanny for years. Mel B alleges that her husband got Gilles pregnant and paid her over $250,000 for ‘nanny services.’
However, Mel B claims that Gilles also received another $240,000 for an abortion.
All of this comes after Mel B claimed that Belafonte beat her and subjected her to many years of physical and mental abuse.
In a set of court documents singer Mel B filed in Los Angeles this week, she claimed that her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte impregnated nanny Lorraine Gilles and had her get an abortion. She claims that Belafonte then paid her $300,000 for “nanny services” before Gilles was fired in 2015.
The allegations against Belafonte surfaced in a court declaration filed by Mel B, whose real name is Melanie Janine Brown, in Los Angeles. Brown married Belafonte in June 2007 and they separated in December 2016. They have a daughter together, Madison, and she has two older children from previous relationships.
TMZ reported that Brown’s lawyers succeeded in getting her a restraining order against Blafonte, who has been ordered to leave their home and to stay away from her children. The declaration includes shocking claims about trying to get Brown to participate in three-ways with other women and threats to release sex tapes.
Does any of this matter to anyone? No. But the internet seems to care, so here we are. Despite what you may think, this job isn’t always glitz and glamour.
