Mel B addresses disturbing hostage story

It has been a stressful time for Mel B, with allegations of domestic abuse being levelled against her husband, Stephen Belafonte, since that X Factor debacle.

Now, the star has had to speak out on yet another rumour – that Belafonte held her hostage in their London home, forcing her to miss the first of the X Factor final shows.

Taking to Twitter to address the rumour, the star wrote: “Pls [sic] don’t believe what you read, it’s all lies, lies, lies as usual.”

The latest rumour details how Belafonte wouldn't let Mel leave their home, with reports now claiming that he is set to face police questioning over the incident.

Local police said: “Police in Kensington and Chelsea borough are investigating an allegation of false imprisonment. The allegation was reported on Monday December 15.”

While Mel had been ruled out of the final shows due to a mystery illness, she appeared on the very last show of the series minus her wedding ring, and sporting what appeared to be bruises on her face and arms.

While it seems that only Mel and Stephen know the truth about what really happened here, we certainly hope she is okay.
