|Stephen Belafonte Reunited With His Daughter Madison|
Added: 02.05.2017 18:20 | 121 views | 0 comments
Stephen Belafonte was reunited with his daughter Madison under "strict supervision" on Sunday (04.30.17).
The 41-year-old film producer is currently in the midst of a divorce battle with Mel B, but was allowed to see his five-year-old daughter for four hours at The Ness Centre, a counselling facility in Los Angeles.
Mel has taken out a restraining order against her estranged husband amid claims he was abusive towards the pop star and forced her into threesomes with the family's former nanny Lorraine Gilles.
And last month, their divorce row with Stephen took another twist when Lorraine claimed she had a seven-year sexual relationship with the singer.
The German filed a defamation lawsuit against the former Spice Girl, hitting back at claims in the 'America's Got Talent' star's divorce documents that she and Mel's husband had been "pilfering money" from her, had an affair and terminated a pregnancy after conceiving Stephen's baby.
The former staff member - who is suing for defamation, libel, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress - said Mel has portrayed her as a "homewrecker, prostitute and extortionist" but "in actuality," the 'Wannabe' hitmaker "seduced" her as a "naive and curious 18-year-old foreign exchange student ... with alcohol, fame and casual sex."
Lorraine claims that Mel confided in her when she first came to the States from her native Germany and told her that she and her spouse had an open relationship.
The former nanny said the trio had a threesome shortly afterwards and claims she continued having sex with Mel for the next seven years.
In her legal documents, Lorraine also said: "At no point did Gilles and Belafonte engage in any sexual acts without Brown's knowledge or participation and at no point did Gilles and Belafonte represent to Brown that Gilles was pregnant with Belafonte's child."

Kourtney wrote on Twitter: "I may or may not have thrown up four times last night and slept in it. #birthdayvibes (sic)"
Meanwhile, the brunette beauty - who has Mason, seven, Penelope, four, and two-year-old son Reign with her ex-boyfriend Scott Disick - was wished a happy birthday by various family members last week, including her mother Kris Jenner.

|Melanie Griffith Reverses Cosmetic Procedures|

Melanie Griffith hopes she looks "more normal now" because she's been having her cosmetic procedures reversed.
The 59-year-old actress - who is divorced from Antonio Banderas - had her first cosmetic procedure 20 years ago to stay looking young and then had more filler and injections to plump up her lips and smooth out her wrinkles.
The 'Working Girl' star thought she looked good until she started getting negative comments about her appearance and so she decided to get injections to "dissolve" the filler which had changer the appearance of her face.
In an interview with Porter magazine, she said: "About seven years ago I started doing injections, and now for the past two, three years, I have been getting it dissolved - it takes a while. I didn't see it until people started saying, 'Oh my God, what has she done?' I was so hurt I went to a different doctor and he started dissolving all of this s**t that this other woman doctor put in. I had done to my lips too. So awful. Hopefully, I look more normal now."
It was Griffith's 'trout pout' which attracted the most attention and she believes her lips ballooned up so much because she had an allergic reaction to the substance used.
The Hollywood star - the daughter of 'The Birds' star Tippi Hedren - said: "Somebody put this ridiculous stuff in and I think I must have been allergic to it."
As well as her medical struggles, Griffith has also battled alcohol and cocaine addiction entering rehab for the first time after her Golden Globe-winning performance in 1988's 'Working Girl' alongside Sigourney Weaver and Harrison Ford.
In spite of her substance abuse issues, Griffith insists she was always a good mother to her kids 'Fifty Shades' star Dakota Johnson, 27, Stella Banderas, 20, and 31-year-old Alexander Bauer but accepts she "f***ed up"
She said: "I was a totally functioning mom. I wasn't like a drunk-on-the-floor, out-of-it type person. I didn't so some things I probably should have done but mostly, I was there for my kids. They had a sort of privileged gypsy life. I did my best, and I will continue to do my best and yeah, of course, I f***ed up."
|Ben Affleck 'In a Good Place' After Rehab|

Ben Affleck is "in a good place" after completing his stint in rehab.
The 'Live By Night' actor - who has Violet, 11, Seraphina, eight and Samuel, five, with his estranged wife Jennifer Garner - revealed earlier this month he completed treatment for alcohol addiction, and is now working on staying "healthy" and being a "great role model" for his children.
A source told E! News: "He is in a good place. He is very focused on staying on track and being healthy.
"[He is] in therapy a few times a week in LA, [rehab] really helped him find perspective and get his priorities in order.
"He loves his kids more than anything and wants to be a great dad, a great role model."
The news comes after Ben's close friend and fellow actor Matt Damon said he "couldn't be happier" with his new outlook on life now that he's come out the other side of rehabilitation.
Matt said: "He's with the kids now, couldn't be happier. Jen's working for a couple weeks in Atlanta, so he's Mr. Mom-ing it right now. And that's what he wants to be doing."
Meanwhile, the 'Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice' star said in an honest Facebook post earlier this month that he had undergone the treatment in order to be the "best father he can be".
He wrote at the time: "I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I've dealt with in the past and will continue to confront. I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be.
"I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step."
And the 44-year-old actor went on to admit he felt "lucky" to have his family and friends as well as ex Jennifer.
He added: "I'm lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I've done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery."
