Here’s the former nanny at the center of Mel B's divorce battle with husband Stephen Belafonte.
Lorraine Gilles, a 26-year-old German-born model, had an affair — and an abortion — with Belafonte while working for the couple, Mel B alleges in explosive court papers.
“He would degrade me in front of her by comparing me to Lorraine,” the former Spice Girl alleged. "Telling me how much younger and better looking she was."
The singer also accuses Belafonte of physical abuse, claiming he punched her in the mouth after accusing her of flirting with R&B superstar Usher.
Belafonte pleaded guilty in 2007 to beating a duck to death. He pleaded no contest in 2003 to assault charges involving his ex-wife, Nicole Contreras.
Mel B, now a judge on America’s Got Talent, has been married to Belafonte for 10 years.
He has denied her allegations, saying he is looking forward to his day in court. In addition, Gilles denies ever having an abortion or being pregnant.
