Personal Life: Dating, Girlfriends, Wife, Kids

He married Nancy Carmell in Los Angeles in 1997, but the marriage only lasted two months after she fled to her hometown of Honolulu and filed for an annulment. He then married model Nicole Contreras, with whom he had a daughter, Giselle, in 2004. He was charged with attacking Nicole at their house after a drunken altercation the year before, an accusation he didn’t challenge. However, he later said that he was unaware that he had confessed to battering his partner, and that the revelation came at a time when he was “confused and stressed.” His appeal was turned down.

Stephen started dating former Spice girl, Mel B, in February 2007 after meeting on the set of the film Talk. They married in June 2007 in Las Vegas after a whirlwind affair, and a year later renewed their vows in front of family and friends in Egypt. Mel gave birth to their daughter Madison on September 1, 2011.

After he was accused of sexually attacking her in 2014, after she emerged on The X Factor UK’s live Sunday show with bruising and cuts on her face and arms, fractures in their marriage started to surface. She had been rushing to the hospital just a few days ago, skipping the live X Factor broadcast on Saturday.

Melanie Brown filed for divorce on Monday, March 20, 2017, citing “irreconcilable disparities,” asking for shared legal custody of Madison and requesting that Stephen’s spousal benefit be revoked. She even cut him out from their bank accounts, saying he had complete leverage of how her £40 million fortune was spent in their marriage. Mel was estimated to be paying Stephen £30,500 a month in emergency spousal care and funding his legal costs in the amount of £106,900 in July 2017.

In divorce documents, Mel B argues that Belafonte set up a phony union for their German-born nanny so she could stay in the US and begin an affair with him. Lorraine Giles’ work status was terminated in September 2017 after Mel shot her.
