Mel B reunites with husband Stephen Belafonte as she shares Christmas
After weeks of speculation over the state of her relationship with her husband Stephen Belafonte, Mel B is appears to have reunited with the American film producer.
The former Spice Girl, who had remained silent as rumours swirled that she and her husband of seven years had gone their separate ways, finally resurfaced on Christmas Day when she shared a family shot on Instagram.
Smiling as she cradled her youngest child Madison in her arms, the star looked relaxed and casual as she shared a couch with her other daughters, Phoenix, 15, and Angel, seven – and, most surprisingly of all, a beaming Stephen.
The shot was shared just a day after her daughter Phoenix – whose father is dancer Jimmy Gulzar – responded to users who criticised Stephen on a picture he posted of the two of them.
‘Can everyone just chill he didn’t hit my mom don’t know how that stupid rumour came up,’ the teen wrote.
Stephen, 39, moved to play down any rumours of a rift between him and Phoenix by sharing the snap of them both doing some last minute shopping on Christmas Eve.
As Stephen smiled for the camera and Phoenix pulled a funny face, he wrote: ‘Me and @phoenixisphoenix getting last min Christmas shopping done!! #tisstheseason.’
Stephen recently slammed speculation from fans of Mel’s on Twitter that he had hit her after she appeared on the X Factor with what appeared to be bruises.
