Mel B has fans talking after recent reports of her hospitalization and her scratch and bruised appearance on The X Factor on Sunday.
Fans began to wonder if her husband Stephen Belafonte was to blame, especially after noticing Mel B wasn’t wearing her wedding ring.
Belafonte has lashed out at speculation that he was responsible for his wife’s injuries.
Mel B came back for the show’s live final after being admitted to hospital on Thursday night. But there was no explanation given for the 39-year-old former Spice Girl’s hospitalization.
Concerned viewers pointed out that she appeared to have a swollen face, bruise on her cheek, and scratches on her upper arms.
Fans started wondering if her husband of seven years, Stephen Belafonte, could be responsible. Eagle-eyed viewers also noticed Mel wasn’t wearing her wedding ring on Sunday night.
Fans began tweeting their thoughts and concerns:
Luke Robinson wrote, “So Mel B was APPARENTLY beaten up by her husband that’s why she couldn’t make it last night. Hence the bruise on cheek and no wedding ring.”
Tom Stoneman tweeted, “Mel B’s got a well iffy bruise on her cheek, scratches on the top of her arms and no wedding ring…. #xfactor”.
Katy Perry Cherry wrote, “hope it’s not true about Mel B! just seems a bit odd how her ‘wedding ring was stolen in hospital’ and she’s got a bruise on her cheek..”
On Monday morning, Stephen hit back on Twitter.
Belafonte tweeted, “I don’t usually respond to Twitter msgs but I will respond to comments of hitting my wife which I think are quite disgusting un true! Mel was very ill a bunch of doctors helped her get better if fans can’t just relax B4 being negative they r not real fans of @OfficialMelB.”
Over the weekend, Brown’s mother Andrea and sister Danielle posted a series of messages on Twitter.com demanding information about the singer’s condition and whereabouts.
It appears we will have to wait and see if Mel and Stephen announce their split soon!
