Spice Girl Melanie Brown has reportedly filed for divorce from her husband Stephen Belafonte after almost 10 years of marriage.

In official court documents obtained by E! Online, Mel has cited “irreconcilable differences” as grounds for divorce.

According to People, Mel is asking for joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s daughter Madison, 5.

The singer, 41, tied the knot with the film producer Stephen in 2007.

E! reports that the official papers list the date of the couple’s separation as December 28, 2016.

The news comes after Mel posted a loved-up message to her husband on Instagram just last month.

“My baby boo,” Mel wrote in the caption. “We have been through everything that would normally tear couples apart and we have come out on the other side stronger.”
