Mel B’s teenage daughter, Phoenix Chi, spoke to The Sun and accused her mom’s ex-husband, Stephen Belafonte, of some vicious acts.
“Stephen didn’t like me […] Not in a grown-up “I disapprove of you” way. He was like a kid — a bigger, sneakier kid. He beat up my dog, and laughed when Lordy got so ill he had to be put down. ‘Now you don’t have to walk him, [Stephen said]”
Phoenix claims Stephen was controlling and abusive way before he married her mother in 2007.
“He left s**t in my room. He would start screaming about things like me leaving food, and go so ballistic it was as if I’d committed a crime. I couldn’t talk to my mom — someone else who looked like her was in her body. She believed every word he said. She loved him. Maybe I had to suck it up. I didn’t want to ruin it for her.”
