From The Sun
MEL B’s huge bust-up with ex Stephen Belanfonte on the eve of the X Factor final was sparked after he accused her of sleeping with Simon Cowell, The Sun on Sunday can reveal.
The claims caused blazing rows when Mel starred on X-Factor and sparked a rift that led to the collapse of their marriage.
Raging Belafonte levelled the accusations as Mel prepared for the talent show’s final in December 2014.
She missed the first night of the two-parter after arguing with Belafonte and undergoing hospital treatment following a pills overdose.
But when she bravely took to the stage on the Sunday night – appearing with bruises on her face and arms – Mel hid the fact her husband had accused her of an affair with the show’s boss.
