Mel B was rushed to hospital over the weekend screaming in agony. It was quick thinking by her chauffeur which saved her life… but her husband was nowhere to be seen during her stay, even though she spent the night in hospital.
Apparently, after seven years of marriage, Mel B had her bags packed prior to her rush to hospital, The Sun is reporting.
She appeared on the X Factor on Sunday after being released from hospital, seeming to have bruises and scratches on her face and arms… And she also wasn’t wearing her wedding ring.
She thanked the nurses for her brave appearance on the show on Sunday night – “I really missed being here [last night] but thanks to all the doctors and nurses who took care of me and got me here (on Sunday),” Mel B said.
Stephen has hit back at rumours he was the reason she went to hospital via Twitter –
“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 said. “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.”
This comes after Mel was three hours late to a photo shoot with Grazia Magazine, admitting on this occasion that she’d had a fight with Belafonte.
“I walked in pi**ed off because I had a big row with my husband about stupid stuff. Sometimes he pi**es me off like no other, but he gets me,” she said.
A source also told The Sun Belafonte had shown no concern for his wife’s health.
“Mel hasn’t spoken to Stephen once since her admission to hospital last week and as it stands she doesn’t want to see him. He didn’t come to the hospital at all.”
Belafonte has a history of domestic violence. In 2007 he was apparently charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend Nicole Contreras.
Mel’s sister Danielle also took to Twitter when the incident happened –
“@stephenthinks1 if I have 2go press I will! Ive recorded all your calls 4 the past week including your 330am abusive call,” she wrote. “STOP @stephenthinks1 with your evil lies!! You told me and my mum yesterday she is fine and not in hospital @SimonCowell just doing press!
“@stephenthinks1 and now you say she is sick but ok Where is my sister??? What have you done??” she continued.
Furthermore, Mel’s sister and mother had fallen out with her over concerns about her relationship with Belafonte.
A string of incidents it seems, all just a little too coincidental?
