Stephen Belafonte took to Twitter on Sunday night to slam rumors that he physically abused his wife, America’s Got Talent judge, Mel B.
“I don’t usually respond to Twitter msgs but I will respond to comments of hitting my wife which I think are quite disgusting un true,” he wrote. “Mel was very ill a bunch of doctors helped her get better if fans can’t just relax B4 being negative they r not real fans of @OfficialMelB.”
Last week, the former Spice Girls singer was rushed to the hospital after suffering severe stomach pains. When the singer returned for the live finale of UK X Factor on Sunday, fans immediately noticed that she not only had scratches and bruises on her body, but that she wasn’t wearing her wedding ring.
“Mel is in a terrible state, physically and emotionally. She is very weak and is being given treatment to help her with the pain,” a friend told The Mirror after her medical emergency.
Melanie Brown, the singer’s legal name, has not directly responded to the allegations.
