Mel B ‘BANNED From Her Own Home After Breaching Court Order’
Mel B has been barred from entering her own home by a judge as part of her ongoing battle with ex-husband Stephen Belafonte, Sun Online can reveal.
It comes after Belafonte’s lawyers took photographs of the star and some pals allegedly taking items from the property, which they filed to the court.
The pictures, obtained by Sun Online, allegedly show Mel B “violating a court order” by going into the couple’s former marital home with friends on May 25, Belafonte, 43, claims in court papers.
A Jan. 2 court order ruled “no third party or family member” was allowed access to the home.
The photos show the star and her friends removing items from a garage and putting them in a rented U-haul truck.
This was before Mel, 43, was temporarily given sole use of the home after she claimed in court filings it had become an “Animal House” with her ex holding wild parties there without permission.
However, Belafonte then hit back requesting a restraining order against his ex-wife claiming she had lied about him both in and outside of court – and that she wanted him dead.
Now a judge at Los Angeles Superior Court appears to have lost patience with the warring pair, stating that neither of them is allowed access to the property.
In new court papers, obtained by Sun Online, both Mel and Belafonte have been given one day to remove their belongings from the home’s garage – under supervision – then they are both barred from entering the property.
Apart from that date “neither party is to have access to the residence,” the court order reads.
The judge will decide whether or not Mel was in breach of the court order at a July hearing.
The luxury home in the Hollywood Hills is currently on the market for $7.5 million but the court has also ordered them to slash the price to $6.5 million.
The couple were divorced last December after 10 years of marriage but are still embroiled in a bitter legal battle over their marital home and custody of their children.
