Famously outspoken Spice Girls export and America’s Got Talent judge Mel B has filed for divorce from her husband Stephen Belafonte after a decade-long, occasionally drama-packed marriage, according to The Daily Mail.

The couple, who got married in Las Vegas in 2007, made their split official yesterday (March 20), when Mel drew up the necessary paperwork at a Los Angeles court. She cited irreconcilable differences, and the couple agreed to joint custody of their five-year-old daughter Madison. Mel also has two other children from previous relationships.

Mel and Belafonte have been rumored to have shared a contentious relationship. In 2014, after Mel showed up to X Factor filming with bruises, reports manifested that Belafonte abused Mel, though he quickly denied the claim. “I don’t usually respond to Twitter msgs but I will respond to comments of hitting my wife which I think are quite disgusting untrue!” he wrote. “Mel was very ill a bunch of doctors helped her get better if fans can’t just relax B4 being negative they r not real fans of Mel.”

Fans also noticed Mel was not wearing her wedding ring on the night in question. She eventually responded by saying “I really missed being here but thanks to all the doctors and nurses who took care of me and got me here tonight.”
