Court grants restraining order request of Mel B against former nanny

Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Amid the very public divorce of Mel B and her estranged husband, Stephen Belafonte, the restraining order request against their former nanny has just been granted by the court.
Mel B claimed the former nanny, Lorraine Gilles, had a relationship with Belafonte. The restraining order will extend until 2022. Gilles worked for Mel B and Belafonte to take care of their three kids, one of whom is the biological daughter of Mel B and Belafonte.
Gilles filed a defamation lawsuit against Mel B after the TV personality and former Spice Girls member claimed the former nanny got impregnated by Belafonte. Mel B added Belafonte proposed that they all live together in the same house but ultimately decided to terminate Gilles’ pregnancy. He then used Mel B’s money to pay for the hospital bills of Gilles.
Gilles was not at the hearing when the restraining order was granted. Mel B, on the other hand, was represented by her attorneys and they said the singer is very happy about the grant.
The restraining orders were requested by Mel B against Gilles and Belafonte after she claimed that they extorted her and threatened that they will release the sex tapes involving the singer and other women. Belafonte reportedly forced her to have sexual intercourse with him and random women while they taped it and he threatened he will ruin her career if she did not follow his orders.
Aside from the order that Gilles and Belafonte have to stay away from Mel B and her kids, the orders also stated Gilles and Belafonte cannot go near the storage unit where the sex tapes are said to be hidden. A source said Mel B has not yet obtained what she needs from the storage unit.
Mel B filed for divorce from Belafonte in March this year. They then engaged in a custody battle and weeks after, Belafonte was allowed to have monitored visits per week with their daughter.
