Mel B bitter divorce battle with Stephen Belafonte is raging on, with the exes currently warring over his visitation rights to her daughter Angel.
And Mel B appeared to take aim at her music producer ex-husband on Thursday, as she pointedly declared that she is ‘never ever afraid’ in a cryptic comment.
The America’s Got Talent judge, 43, accompanied the dig with a series of sizzling Instagram snaps of herself frolicking completely naked in a pool with her hairdresser best friend Gary Madatyan. Mel ensured all eyes were on her as she showcased her pert posterior and flat stomach while leaping into a nude Gary’s arms in the shot.
She captioned the jaw-dropping snap: ‘Back to basics naked but never ever afraid finally, with my Bestie @gary_90210.’
The former Spice Girls singer included the hashtags: ‘#blessd #trust #nojudgement #brutallyhonest #nodrama.’Not content with one scene-stealing snap, she also posted a shot of herself showing off her back tattoo of a dragon as she snuggled into Gary.
Mel wrote alongside it: ‘And then there where 2 #truefriendshipneverends #brutallyhonest #truth.’ Mel’s social media display comes amid the singer’s drawn-out divorce battle with Stephen, who she shares her daughter Madison, six, with.
She recently claimed their separation has left her more than $3 million (£2,266,00 million) in the red.
It was reported that the IRS has started garnishing her America’s Got Talent salary to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes she owes.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Mel’s America’s Got Talent pay cheques are now being garnished, meaning money to pay her bills is automatically being deducted before she receives her salary.
