Mel B is no stranger to the court of law and again, she seems to be in a soup. The 42-year-old has been accused of intimidating a witness who was prepared to testify against her in her divorce battle with Stephen Belafonte, and police have opened a felony investigation.
The witness, who filed a police report on Monday, is none other than rapper Siya. TMZ.com reports that according to Law Enforcement Resources, Siya claimed that Mel sent her texts threatening her to not dare testify against the latter. After she showed the text messages to the police, the felony witness intimidation case was opened.
Sources say that Siya was a close friend of Stephen as well as Mel and that she was going to testify that Mel’s ex-husband never physically abused his wife. But Mel’s connections said that Siya and Mel met only a couple of times.
Siya is also set to testify that Mel B frequently used illegal drugs, and that it was Mel who called the shots in the couple’s three way with their nanny Lorraine Gilles.
