Lorraine is reported to have had an affair with the Spice Girls’ estranged husband, Stephen Belafonte, who she is now divorcing.
During the alleged seven-year tryst the German au pair is said to have been pregnant by Stephen. Mel claimed the film producer paid for Lorraine to have an apartment – using her cash to pay for it without her knowledge. Lorraine was then alleged to have been paid thousands to have an abortion – allegations which she denied.
Since the information has become public knowledge Mel’s lawyer has accused Lorraine of “harassing and annoying” behaviour on a number of occasions. The judge ruled that there was a need for the 41-year-old to have a restraining order against her ex-employee which will last until May 3 2022.
However Lorraine has hit back at Mel with a defamation case. The pretty blonde – who looked after the TV host’s three kids – alleges that Mel knew about the relationship because she was involved.
She claims there’s no way the affair could have been secret as the three of them often engaged in threesomes.
Mel’s ex is also hitting back at her allegations, which includes physical abuse, accusing her of spreading a “smear campaign” to get custody of their daughter.
The America’s Got Talent judge accused Stephen of abusing her throughout their 10-year marriage and finally got the courage to leave in March. However Mel’s ex-girlfriend believes her dad’s death from cancer was the real reason for the split.
