Mel B has finalised her divorce from Stephen Belafonte, bringing an end to an acrimonious split.

A judge in Los Angeles ordered the former Spice Girl to pay $350,000 (£270,000) of her ex-husband’s legal fees – as well as a monthly sum of $5,000 (£3,800) in child support for their six-year-old daughter Madison.

The couple split in 2017, with Mel B accusing Belafonte of being physically and emotionally abusive towards her and her children.

Those allegations, which he denied, were dropped during the court case. However, the couple agreed to stay 200 yards away from each other after Judge Mark Juhas threw out a restraining order they had each tried to put on the other.

Exceptions will be made for Madison’s school events, including extra-curricular activities and teacher conferences, after the couple agreed to share custody.
