After her “Spice Girls” bandmate Mel B shared a video to raise awareness about domestic violence, singer and fashion designer Victoria Beckham showed her support for her “brave” friend. According to Page Six, the 47-year-old fashion mogul reposted a short film that 42-year-old singer Mel B directed, in partnership with UK charity Women’s Aid, on Monday about the realities of abuse.
“It’s so powerful and brave. Swipe up to watch the full movie and learn more x VB,” the fashion designer wrote alongside the video. In the movie “ Love Shouldn’t Hurt, ” which Mel B originally posted on her page last week, Scary Spice portrays a character in an abusive relationship who appears to look bruised and beaten.
“This is the most important video I have ever made, I will never stop fighting for this cause, so please keep sharing please keep talking. To the abusers , we know who you are, even though you’re still out there thinking you can get away with it. The tide is turning, ”she captioned her post.
Mel B’s activism comes after she accused her ex-husband Stephen Belafonte in 2017 of beating and sexually exploiting her – claims he vehemently denied, Page Six reported. She then obtained a restraining order against Belafonte for allegedly drugging her throughout their marriage and recording 56 sex videos, some featuring threesomes, without her consent.
Mel B subsequently quashed the restraining order so he could see their daughter Madison who is now 9 years old. During their divorce, the former America’s Got Talent judge also accused Belafonte of impregnating their nanny, Lorraine Gilles, and claimed he forced Gilles to have an abortion. Gilles subsequently sued Mel B for character defamation, and they reportedly reached a settlement last month.
In 2018, Mel B went to rehab for PTSD following the alleged abuse. She and Belafonte were married from 2007 to 2017. Mel B has two other daughters: 22-year-old Phoenix with ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar and 14-year-old Angel with ex Eddie Murphy. (ANI)
