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."

Serena Williams' Pregnancy Announcement Was an 'Accident'

Added: 26.04.2017 16:30 | 43 views | 0 comments

Serena Williams didn't mean to announce her pregnancy via Snapchat.
The 35-year-old professional tennis player revealed earlier this month that she is expecting a baby with her fiancé Alexis Ohanian when she took to the photo sharing app to post a snap captioned "20 weeks".
Now, the star has admitted she meant to save the photo for later use, and didn't mean to publish it for the world to see.
She said: "Well, actually it was an accident. I was on vacation just taking some time for myself and I have this thing where I've been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along I'm going.
"I didn't tell a lot of people to be quite honest and I'd been saving it. And you know how social media is when you press the wrong button ... and [there it was]."
But Serena admits it wasn't the end of the world, as she was planning on breaking the news a few days after her mishap anyway.
She added: "So thirty minutes later, my phone doesn't ring that much, and thirty minute later I missed like four calls and I'm like, 'That's weird,' and then I picked it up and I was like 'Oh no' ... but it was a good moment. I was just going to wait literally just five or six more days so that's okay."
Meanwhile Serena - who defeated her sister Venus to be crowned winner of the Australian Open in January - says she's been "fortunate" enough to not suffer with morning sickness so far, and said despite her pregnancy her tennis career is far from over.
Speaking to Gayle King during her TEDtalk in Vancouver on Tuesday (25.04.17), Serena said: "I've been so very fortunate. I haven't [had any sickness]. Obviously I'm going to have a baby and I'm going to stay fit and kind of come back and play tennis and keep working on my fashion line. That would be really fun."
