Mel B‘s former nanny is filing a lawsuit against the singer, claiming she told lies about her in the divorce case against Stephen Belafonte.
TMZ has learned the lawsuit centers on declarations Mel B filed in which she claims Belafonte and Lorraine Gilles told her they had an affair and that Lorraine was pregnant with his child. Mel B also claimed Gilles had an abortion.
Mel B claims nanny and her husband had an affair
Mel B goes on to accuse Gilles and Belafonte of pilfering money from her.
In another declaration, Mel B claims Lorraine has control over her sex tapes and might disseminate them.
There are numerous exhibits and pictures in the lawsuit which Gilles believe will convince a jury Mel B’s allegations are a pack of lies.
It’s interesting … generally a person can’t be sued for what they say in court papers, but there’s an exception in California family law cases when someone makes a claim against 3rd parties who are not involved in the litigation. Lorraine Gilles is a 3rd party in the divorce case.
Meanwhile Stephen Belafonte went to the LAPD several days ago and told cops a former girlfriend was extorting him … threatening to make up stories he abused her, unless he paid her a large sum of cash.
Law enforcement sources tell us Stephen told cops the woman contacted him with false claims but said people would believe her given Mel B‘s domestic violence allegations. The woman threatened her statements would make everyone believe Mel B was telling the truth.
She wanted money, but Belafonte didn’t bite, and went to the police station.
As we reported, Mel B claims Stephen extorted her with sex tapes, allegedly saying he would ruin her if she ever left him or tried to fire their nanny.
