News broke yesterday that Mel B has been ordered to pay a staggering monthly allowance to her ex-husband Stephen Belafone.
Gossip site TMZ stated that the former Spice Girl has been instructed to dole out a whopping $US40,000 ($A51,000) a month in emergency spousal support.
The mum-of-three must also pay Stephen a one-time payment of $US140,000 ($A178,770) to cover his legal fees.
Following the ruling, Mel’s mum Andrea lashed out in an angry Twitter outburst.
However, despite the shock news, Andrea admitted her main concern was that Mel was now safe and away from the clutches of her former husband.
TMZ claims Stephen’s request for emergency spousal support was granted by a judge in order to help pay for his food, phone and housing costs until the pair eventually work out a final divorce settlement.
