Mel B reaches settlement with estranged husband over domestic violence claims

Months after their messy court battles and smear campaigns, Mel B has withdrawn the domestic violence suit she filed against her estranged husband, Stephen Belafonte.

Mel B leaves Los Angeles Superior Court Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles, California on November 9, 2017.

Brown's lawyer, Sean Macias, said his client and the former couple's ex- nanny, Lorraine Gilles, are close to settling another domestic violence dispute in which the singer alleges the onetime household employee has been harassing her in cooperation with Belafonte.

According to TMZ, the "America's Got Talent" star - who also has daughters Phoenix, 18, and Angel, 10, from past relationships - and Stephen have also settled a portion of their property division.

As you may already know, the judge for America's Got Talent filed for divorce in March after almost ten years of marriage.

In March, Mel, 42, accused Belafonte of physically abusing and sexually exploiting her, as well as impregnating their nanny, whom Mel claimed Belafonte forced to have an abortion.

As part of the agreement, a restraining order Mel made against her estranged back in April has been lifted.

"I am in fear of my safety and I am in fear of being irreparably harmed as a result of [Belafonte's] threats", she wrote at the time in her court documents obtained by Us Weekly.

The court mandate keeping Belafonte and Mel B apart will last until the 13th of November according to reports. Mark Juhas, who served as the judge for the case, said videotapes of Belafonte can be used for evidence and will be played in open court as "it doesn't involve minor children". Since they divorced, Mel B went on to start dating her hairstylist.
