Mel B ’s estranged husband has been caught up in a police raid in a search for illegal guns. 

Burly Stephen Belafonte, currently embroiled in a bitter split with Scary Spice, came back to the home they still share to find FBI agents waiting for him.

The agents patted him down and then entered the £7million (C$11.70M) Hollywood house with a crowbar, mini-battering ram and other tools, according to U.S. reports.

Sources said the agents had a warrant relating to possible illegal possession of firearms, the Sunday People reports. 

The incident came after it emerged Mel was “nervous” about him keeping a gun in the house.

As the agents left without appearing to find anything a reporter called to Stephen, 41: “You’re out of cuffs, that’s a good sign.”

He replied: “I was never in cuffs.”

Asked what was happening, he said: “I have no idea. Maybe someone’s pranking me.”

America’s Got Talent judge Mel, 41, wants a divorce from Stephen and custody of their five-year-old daughter.
