Mel B responds to husband abuse rumors, posts Christmas family photo

Mel B was recently hospitalized for severe stomach pains but during the X Factor the singer, 39, who is a juror on the show, appeared on the set with bruises and especially without her wedding ring.

Soon, viewers made assumptions and guessed that the singer had been a victim of domestic violence allegedly caused by her husband, Stephen Belafonte, 39.

But while Belafonte denied the claims on social media, Melanie Brown never spoke. However, it seems she has decided to break her silence.

On Sunday, Dec. 28, she took to Instagram account to share a picture with her husband.

“This is for my fans havin problems with my Twitter will be back soon! I’m very good was very polly but much better now and for the record my hubby never would lay a hand on me sorry took so long but any response fuels rumors #lovemyfamily #lovemyfans,” she captioned the photo.

On Christmas Day, a snapshot of the whole family was posted on Mel B’s Instagram account.

“Have a merry Christmas! #familytime #funday,” she wrote in the caption to a pic showing the couple and their daughter Madison, 3, and Mel B’s daughters Phoenix, 15, and Angel, 7.
