Mel B is worried that her ex-husband is putting their child at risk by allowing one of his friends to provide childcare services while allegedly working on a plot to destroy the Spice Girl’s reputation in the process.
According to documents, obtained by The Blast, Mel B claims Stephen Belafonte is employing a man named Russell Updergraff as the childcare worker for their 7-year-old daughter, Madison.
The singer describes Updergraff is a “60 year old club promoter” who is trying to “deliberately damage and attempt to destroy my reputation.”
She claims he makes money by “selling false stories” to the news media, and believes he is trying to exploit his relationship with Madison to curry favor from the child and get information to use against her mother.
Things have apparently become so toxic, that Updergraff is fighting with Mel B’s mother. She says Updergraff texted Andrea Brown, stating, “I’m with your granddaughter all day and now they will now just how horrible you really are,” and “your nothing but a two faced back stabbing thick headed white trash slag.”
