WHY exactly is Stephen requesting Mel to pay a $2,000-a-month clothing allowance? $11,000-a-month for housing? $4,300-a-month for groceries?! I mean. Come on. Even if he's aiming to live off spousal support, shouldn't he be forced to live like a normal person? Live on a futon, eat at Captain D's, and wait for a sale at Target, dude.

And his attorney accusing Mel of being the one squandering the Spice Girls earnings is nuts. Stephen readily admits an income of zero. How long has that been going on? Clearly, Mel's not the only one who's been living off that money. After all, this is a man who thinks the bare minimum in life is a $2,000-a-month clothing allowance.

Look. In terms of allegations flying around...I wasn't there. I don't know. But certainly *no one* has sympathy for Stephen's shameless mooching.

Stomp him, Mel...but ditch the glasses. Look like a damn mad scientist....

Claiming she's in debt is Stephen's way of publicly embarrassing her? Or is it true?

There are a few different scenarios...
Melanie has a private account she has money stashed away in to prevent him from getting to it
She really is in debt
She is playing along with the debt accusation to prevent Stephen from getting any more money... that she "doesn't have"
Stephen wants her to sell the house for 1) his own financial gain, 2) so she has to find a new place to live

To squander away $50,000,000 over the past 20yrs, she'd had to have spent at least $2,500,000 a year since 1996.

It's all a load of bullshit surely. Mel must get paid a few million a year for her America's Got Talent role, then there is the roles on all the other various Talent shows. Plus her presenting gig for Lipsync Battle and all the endorsements she has done. She will also have been paid for her Broadway and Vegas shows, plus her Dancing With The Stars fee. Then she is an investor in a very successful bottled water company in the USA. That's not even taking into account her Spice Girls earnings from back in the day, and the money that they will get every year...

But the article says 'Jacalyn Davis, representing Brown, spoke of their tax problems, saying they were 'sustained through improvident lifestyle choices'.

I don't think she can lie in court about such matters, isn't that treason? If she is hiding money then she could go to jail. They had tax issues, and that can take a huge chunk out of earnings especially when not paid on time.

^ Yup.

Even if the info wasn't forced out in court, I wouldn't have found it unrealistic for Mel to have lost much of her career earnings. Stars spend so outrageously that they blow through their money all the time. Keeping up with the spending is clearly why Mel was showing such poor taste in her endorsements over the years. She certainly knew they weren't great projects. She needed the money.

But all of this does make Stephen's demands sound even weirder. How can his team expect Mel to pay all his expenses...while also claiming she's broke? I know she's still doing AGT, but if she's THAT far in debt, is she really coming out ahead even with the new paychecks? And Stephen wants them to go straight to his pocket apparently.

The men she has picked seem to fleese her dry. She needs to find a guy who isn't so desperate and needy and has his own money and a job!

Anybody else catch that Sun article follows the abuse allegations with the Tell Me video? It's posted with the caption...'Mel opens up about abusive relationship in music video for Tell Me'...

...implying the song's about Stephen.

Does the writer of the article honestly not know that song's from 17 years ago...?

Some of those tabloid articles are so misleading. Her sunglasses alone are probably worth close to £961!

Exactly! I'm sure she has been living good and spent a lot. but she also has had HUGE earnings again every year since 2007, not to mention recent years with major TV- deals and such.
Just add the former Spice money, the royalities they earn from way back every year AND the reunion tour/ GH money and on.

Guys. These aren't just tabloid allegations.

As has been mentioned before, if this is coming up in court...then there are current money issues.

All the evidence is there...the poor judgement in endorsements...the reaction to other members preventing a Spice reunion. Mel clearly has money issues. Yes, she had a ton of money...but we don't know how opulently she and Stephen were living. All those deals and the Spice royalties don't matter if the spending is outpacing it all. No matter how much money you make, you can manage to blow through it all. Look at Johnny Depp. It happens all the time.

That's not to say Mel can't still land on her feet (I think). She has the benefit of still working...in addition to whatever checks she still gets from the Spice years. I hope she can adjust her spending...and still come out okay. But that probably depends on how bad these tax issues have become.

I just hope she doesn't have to pay him anything in spousal support.
