Mel B has been the center of a hugely reported and publicized messy divorce with her estranged husband, Steven Belafonte, who she claimed was abusive. But now she’s making waves for a whole other reason.
Over the weekend, the former Spice Girl and America’s Got Talent judge, was seen sucking face with her hair stylist Gary Madatyan. Soon after, the star posted a picture of the two of them on Instagram and captioned it by calling the man the “love of my life.”
Some think that this may be a ploy to shift the narrative away from her messy and public divorce to how she’s now choosing to move on with her life.
Additional pictures were posted of Mel B vacationing in Hawaii; the beauty looks to be having a great time and Madatyan is seen right by her side.
Madatyan is an entrepreneur who owns a hair salon which routinely donates its profits to specific charities that aid victims of domestic abuse. This is a common thread that some of Mel B’s fans are speculating could have brought the two together.
Mel B may have a type because Madatyan actually resembles her estranged ex-husband, with the shaved head, light skin, and facial hair.
But it seems that despite all of the extreme allegations that have been revealed in this nasty divorce, Mel B is on her way to reclaiming her life and finding a bit of happiness.
The abuse allegations where just the tip of the iceberg as apparently Belafonte had an affair with their nanny, that Mel B knew about and even reportedly may have taken part in threesomes with her husband and the young woman.
Belafonte is also seeking spousal support and wants visitation with Mel B’s first child who isn’t biologically his. Divorces are typically messy but this one is in a league all it’s own.
However, despite all of that unending drama, Mel has managed to keep her career and love life protected. Her personality is a hit on America’s Got Talent and she seems to be very happy with her new beau.
