MEL B FILES A RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST HER FORMER NANNY
One week after Mel B was granted a temporary restraining order against her estranged husband, Stephen Belafonte, E! News has confirmed that she has filed a temporary restraining against the couple’s former nanny, Lorraine Gilles.
Mel B claims that in addition to having an affair with Stephen during their marriage and getting pregnant with his child, her ex child-care giver is now extorting the pop star.
Reports claim that Mel’s lawyers got the court order so that they could be granted access to a storage locker rented by Lorraine, which Mel B alleges contains a slew of very personal items that she doesn’t want to get out, including sex tapes of the couple, photos that Stephen threatened to make public against the singer, Spice Girls memorabilia and photos of Mel’s father, who died in March.
But there are also more shocking claims —Mel directly accuses Lorraine and Stephen of extortion in the documents. She alleges that when she tried to fire the nanny back in January 2015, Stephen flipped out and called Lorraine his “ride or die bitch.” Mel B then said that her husband threatened to release the risqué tapes of the couple if Mel didn’t agree to rehire Lorraine and give her a raise. Mel also claims that Lorraine knew all about the videos and the threats, but that and she’d agreed to help Stephen.

REUBEN ABATI AND BBNAIJA DRAMA

He critiqued the show commenting on its high and low points. The media personality made some controversial statements like: “I have seen better breasts TBOSS” and “What just ended as Big Brother Naija 2017 was nothing other than the corralling of some human beings into a zoo, pressured to behave like nothing but animals. The organizers made money devaluing other human beings.”
