Mel B wants domestic violence, child custody case sealed

Mel B is accusing her ex of putting media exposure ahead of their children’s well-being, and now she wants her legal battle with him sealed from the public.

Mel B filed docs asking the court to seal her ongoing domestic violence case against Stephen Belafonte because it’s attracting so much media attention, it’s harming her kids.

Mel says reporters and photographers are waiting whenever she drops off their daughter to visit Stephen, and suspects he’s alerting media to the visitation schedule. She says, “While [Stephen] may enjoy the media attention, the minor child of this marriage did not ask to be placed in the center of this mounting storm.”

According to TMZ, Sources connected to Belafonte says he absolutely denies exploiting the case or giving the media a heads up.

In the docs, Mel also says testifying about the alleged abuse  in open court would be “further abuse” against her.

A hearing’s set for next month for the judge to decide whether to seal the case.
