Stephen Belafonte has officially responded to Mel B’s divorce filing.

The singer’s now-estranged and allegedly abusive husband is requesting spousal support and joint custody of their 5-year-old daughter, Madison. According to Stephen, the pair separated on March 1 despite Mel’s claims that date of separation was December 28.

Earlier this week, the singer was granted a restraining order against the film producer after making a string of serious allegations. According to the mother of three, Belafonte was physically abusive throughout their 10-year marriage.

Over the course of their troubled relationship, Mel also claims Stephen allegedly sexually exploited her and even knocked up their German nanny.

Belafonte’s lawyers released a statement to the press that read:

“What matters most to Mr. Belafonte is the safety and well-being of his daughters and step-daughters. It’s a shame that Ms. Brown elected not to proceed in a respectful and amicable fashion in this very private matter. In due course, Mr. Belafonte will be filing his response to the outrageous and unfounded allegations made by Ms. Brown, which allegations he vehemently denies.”

Mel has not publicly spoken out since the saga unfolded this week, but her sister, Danielle Brown, has. In an angry Instagram post, Danielle blasted Stephen for being  a “wife beater,” “criminal” and a “sorry excuse for a man.”

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
