In the documents which were also obtained by TMZ, Mel makes claims of domestic abuse against Stephen, alleging the extreme violence has been going on since 2007, however the producer has denied these claims.

Mel refers to a incident in November 2007 where she alleges Stephen choked and slammed her down onto hardwood floors before the finale of Dancing With The Stars.

She also refers to two more incidents in in 2012, claiming that before leaving to film X Factor with Usher, Stephen "flew into a jealous rage" before punching her in the face which left her with a split lip.

In August 2012 after performing with the Spice Girls at the London Olympic Games closing ceremony, Mel claims Stephen punched her and held her down on the floor, with the side of her face “scabbed over from the rug burns”, adding that her husband then forced her to tweet a photo of her injury writing that she hurt herself by running in Christian Louboutin heels.

Mel seemingly addressed the incident on August 17 2012 tweeting: "Running in 7 inch louboutin no good!! I’m wearing Prauge on my face!!!”

The mother-of-three also makes claims that Stephen forced her to "participate in sexual intercourse with him and random women", which he secretly recorded, and if she refused to join he uses to tapes to blackmail Mel and would threaten to release them to "ruin her career."

In 2014 overcome with "emotional and physical exhaustion" Mel allegedly took a "whole bottle of aspirin" and when she tried to call emergency services she claims Stephen locked her in their bedroom, "telling me to 'die, bitch!'"

Stephen told TMZ on Monday that he was "shocked" by the abuse allegations and denied involvement.

Mel filed for divorce in March, requesting joint legal and physical custody of their daughter, Madison.
