Mel B publicly declared her love for Stephen Belafonte just six weeks before filing for divorce.

According to court documents, obtained by People magazine, Mel called off the relationship citing "irreconcilable differences" and is requesting for spousal support to Stephen to be terminated.

The singer filed for separation from Stephen on December 28, 2016, and is asking for joint legal and physical custody for their five-year-old daughter Madison.

The news will come as a shock to fans as Mel shared a picture of her husband just six weeks ago, where she referred to him as her "world".

Mel and Stephen were close friends for years before getting romantically involved after meeting on the set of a film called Talk.

Speaking about their friendship in the past, the AGT judge told the Daily Telegraph: "Stephen and I never had a romantic relationship in all those years, so it was quite a shock when it happened.

"One night, we'd been out and he just kissed me. I thought, what was that?"

While Stephen said: "I'd never connected with someone on so many levels and, after a while, it just lined up. Knowing each other so intimately already meant all our cards were on the table.

"She knew all my crazy s**t, and I had her full story. That's been an amazing base for us. I've never had that before."

They tied the knot in secret in June 2007 at the Special Memory Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas.
