Stephen Belafonte Responds To Mel B's Abuse Allegations Amid Divorce

Stephen Belafonte is responding to allegations of abuse made by his estranged wife Mel B.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge granted the 'America's Got Talent' judge a restraining order on Monday, barring Belafonte from coming into physical or verbal contact with her or their children.

The former Spice Girl, who filed for divorce after nearly 10 years of marriage, has claimed that he was verbally as well as physically abusive towards her during the relationship.

Belafonte's lawyers say Mel B's allegations are "outrageous and unfounded."

"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," the statement reads.

"When the Court determines the truth, it will become clear that this entire charade was nothing more than a smear campaign intended to cover up Ms. Brown's own conduct during the marriage in light of her current involvement with a family television show, and in an effort to unfairly gain leverage both financially and with respect to custody of the children."

"When the degree to which Ms. Brown has gone to create a false depiction of her marriage to Mr. Belafonte is uncovered, real victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse will be understandably offended, angry and upset," it adds.

"Mr. Belafonte is confident that the truth will come out when he has his day in court at which time he looks forward to being reunited with his children. In the meantime, Mr. Belafonte requests that he and his children be given the space they deserve during this challenging time."
