Things are really getting spicy between Mel B and her estranged husband. Spicy like the battle of two burritos in the middle of Mexico. No bathroom in sight. Todo es fuego guey. It’s hard not to question where you went wrong as a woman when you have to pay your husband spousal support. It’s hustling backwards. It’s something similar to court ordered pimp payment. For centuries men have held down the heavyweight head of the household title. Bake bread. Break bread. Ask daddy and you will receive. But recently women have been spearheading for their independence, and quickly learning male gender roles aren’t as glamorous as they seem. Just ask Scary Spice.
Mel argued last month that Stephen’s financial requests were ridiculous and he needed to get a job. Looks like he can afford to be picky about work … for a while at least.
Husband Stephan Belafonte wasn’t on the CD’s and notebooks of every little girl growing up in the 90’s. But this time it was the judge’s turn to be a spice girl. He told Stephen to tell him what he really really wanted. And it wasn’t a zigga zig ah, it was more like $140,000 for legal fees, and 40 thousand a month until a divorce settlement was reached. This is clearly a win for feminists who believe in equality. Men shouldn’t be the only gender financially sodomized in court. Break out the lube ladies.
