Newly divorced Mel B went to take her children to school on Friday morning only to find that one of her car’s tires had been slashed. She shared a photo of the damage with her 1.1 million Instagram followers, hinting that she believed it was a deliberate act and alluding that a crime had been committed by her ex-husband.
Some fans were quick to point out that perhaps the damage to the tire was not the result of a malicious act. A commenter wrote, “That’s not a slash, that’s curb rash or pothole blowout. Your sidewall is worn. Looks like you were riding on your sidewall for a while. I bet there is a lot of rubber bits in the tire now.” Another commenter agreed but also cautioned the singer, “You might have hit a curb or something else. Your rim is damaged also, but at the same time be careful and watch out. Your too cute to be hurt by dummies.”
After 10 years of marriage, the Spice Girl filed for divorce from film producer Stephen Belafonte last March. The couple’s split has been tumultuous, from fighting for custody of their 6-year-old daughter to Mel B accusing Belafonte of domestic abuse and eventually filing a restraining order against him.
Despite having recently agreed to sharing custody of their daughter, Madison, Belafonte is still trying to get visitation rights for Mel B’s 10-year-old daughter, Angel, whose father is actor Eddie Murphy. Mel B and Belafonte began dating shortly after Mel B was pregnant with Angel.
In an Instagram post, he vowed to keep fighting for Angel. He wrote, “I will fight for you just like you are my biological daughter!”
