Mel B returns to Twitter following split from husband

Mel B is divorcing Stephen Belafonte after almost 10 years together. Under California law, a stepparent can get "reasonable visitation" if it's in the best interests of the child.

Mel B, whose net worth is estimated at $50 million, reportedly wants to settle the divorce battle "as quickly as possible" to prevent "any more harm being done to her kids".

Mel claimed that during their marriage her husband was abusive towards her as soon as they tied the knot in 2007.

And what about those disturbing abuse claims, which Stephen has denied?

Even though she did not speak out about her divorce, this is still the first time that Mel B has returned to social media since filing for divorce on March 20.

Belafonte has requested full custody of Madison, and his attorney included his step-daughter Angel in a letter to Mel B's lawyer late last month.

The 41-year-old singer took to Twitter, where she shared a link of Billboard article about fellow singer Adeles album "21". It is in the hands of my lawyers. Because of the nature of the allegations, Belafonte lost rights to custody and visitation of their 5-year-old daughter Madison, according to

Mel B also shares 18-year-old daughter Phoenix Chi from her marriage with Jimmy Guzlar, and 10-year-old daughter Angel Iris from her ex-partner Eddie Murphy.

Mel was granted a restraining order against Stephen last week after she accused him of abusing her, getting their nanny pregnant and forcing her to take part in threesomes.
