However, it's looks like the former couple are now at a crossroads as there settlement can't progress unless they agree on a separation date after Mel claimed things came to a halt between them on December 28, while Stephen is adamant it was March 1.

The mogul reportedly told Mel that Stephen - who he had met on numerous occasions over the years - was "bad news" and "bad guy", and urged her to leave him.

Stephen Belafonte claims Mel B is creating high drama that's pure fiction by claiming he and their former nanny are in cahoots in holding her sex tapes and personal items hostage in a storage locker.

"Mel B has temporarily been able to deny visitation and custody to Stephen Belafonte, for probably about 21 days or 3 weeks".

Lorraine Gilles has been banned from "annoying, harassing, molesting and coming within 100 yards" of the former Spice Girls singer while her divorce is ongoing.

"Should a permanent order be granted, Mel B will be given primary legal and physical custody and Stephen will be at a severe disadvantage for his rights as a father".

Meanwhile, according to a report posted by The Mirror, Belafonte, wants to call on German nanny Lorraine, 26, in an attempt to back up his case and clear his name.

She claims her angry husband threatened to release the sex videos unless she rehired the childminder with a raise.

His lawyer reportedly wrote to Mel B's legal team, and said: 'Stephen would like to schedule a meeting as soon as possible to discuss the resolution of temporary issues including his ability to see Madison and Angel, whom we would appreciate continuing to have contact with'.

The singer claims in court documents that after Belafonte hired Gilles, a German exchange student, to be their nanny in 2010, that relationship became sexual and he began "paying her inordinate amounts of money".

In January 2015, Mel fired Gilles despite protestations from Belafonte.
