A furious Mel B lashed out at a British presenter after she read out her ex-husband Stephen Belafonte’s denial that he hit her during a live TV program.

The Spice Girl looked visibly angry as she told Good Morning, Britain Susanna Reid and her co-host Piers Morgan that broadcasting his response to her domestic violence claims after her interview “shouldn’t be allowed”.

Last year the pop star, 43, divorced the film producer, 43, after 10 years of marriage, and has since spoken about the “abuse” he subjected her to.

After an interview in which they discussed Mel’s new autobiography Brutally Honest, Reid said: “It’s been lovely to talk to you. We have to read a right of reply.

“Mr Belafonte has told us there are new litigation plans and he will be answering the allegations in full, which he denies.”

As she read out the statement, the star could be heard off camera gasping: “Oh god. Don’t want to hear that.”

Mel B added: “You shouldn’t do the right of reply. He shouldn’t have a platform to do that.”

Morgan suggested: “Well when he replies, you can reply again.”

Mel said: “No! Why would I? Why would I get into a spat like that?”

Morgan said: “Unfortunately we had to do that, whether we wanted to or not. And I didn’t want to. I’m with you on this. Team Mel. Team Scary.”

It comes as one of Mel B’s ex-lovers has voiced concerns that she’ll never find love again after the breakdown of her toxic marriage to Belafonte.

Danny Lopes, 36, who had a whirlwind romance with the singer, fears the star can no longer trust people.

The Mirror reports the actor revealed the bitter break up and costly divorce “has left her unable to trust anyone fully and let them into her heart”.

Mel filed for divorce from Belafonte in 2017 citing “irreconcilable differences” after nearly a decade of marriage.

The couple’s marriage was plagued by rumours of abuse, controlling behaviour and infidelity.

Lopes and Mel enjoyed a brief love affair during which he said she never fully opened herself up to him.

The Playgirl model said: “Mel will go so far, and then pull back emotionally — and that happened with me.

“It breaks my heart because Mel has so much to offer as a partner.

“She told me she loved me, I told her the same, but while physically we were a natural fit, she just pulled away from taking things further.”
