Mel B’s new cop boyfriend is married and it’s “complicated and messy”

Above is a photo of Mel B with the same bizarre half-shaved asymmetric haircut we saw her with last week. I mentioned that it doesn’t seem to suit her at all, and most of you agreed. She recently dyed it shock white with some blue patches (it was previously orange blonde), she worse it all teased up to a live show of America’s Got Talent, and it looks even worse now. Poor Mel. At least her dress distracts from her hair.

The last we heard about Mel B’s lovelife she was dating a Beverly Hills cop and practically living with him after a very short period of time. Sources told TMZ it was “complicated” and guess what? In Touch reports that he’s married. Of course he is.

Just as her divorce from Stephen Belafonte gets uglier, Melanie “Mel B” Brown has found love again with a Beverly Hills cop — and In Touch magazine has learned that his “marital status is complicated and messy.”

“He’s married,” the former Spice Girl’s close friend tells In Touch exclusively. “He’s a cop with the Beverly Hills Police Department. He’s also younger than her.”

Though they haven’t been dating long, “She already seems to be in love with her new guy,” says the friend, explaining that the America’s Got Talent judge met her beau while dealing with law enforcement in the aftermath of her divorce.

“This guy is giving Mel a huge ego boost. He worships the ground that she walks on, and she loves it,” the friend tells In Touch.

However, friends are wary of him because of his marital status, but Mel has been assuring everyone that “he was unhappily married for a while,” adds the friend. “He had planned to separate from his wife prior to meeting Mel.”

Now she has to worry about Stephen using her new romance against her. “Her divorce from Stephen is still not finalized. He could absolutely use [her relationship with this married man] against her in court,” adds a source.

“Mel’s life is complicated enough right now,” says the source. “The last thing she needs is the over-the-top drama of dating a married man.”

So “planned to separate from his wife” is not the same as “was separated from his wife.” “Planned to separate” means he was actively looking for a way out and that he found one in Mel. Maybe that’s why he’s staying over her house all the time – his wife is at home. Mel really needs to go to counseling and reset her picker. I would say that I hope he’s a good guy, and maybe he is in comparison to her ex, Stephen Belafonte, but most guys would be. Plus his actions do not indicate he’s anything but a cheater and a liar.

Oh and Mel threw her drink on Simon Cowell during a live showing of America’s Got Talent last night. He made a very rude and tasteless joke about how a failed performance was like “Mel B’s wedding night, a lot of a lot of anticipation, not much promise or delivery.” So she got up, chucked her water at Simon, and then walked off. She looked like she was laughing though. This isn’t even the first time Mel has thrown her drink on Simon this season. In the last instance Simon joked, after a mediocre dance performance by a cop, that Mel “was successful without being able to dance.” Here’s a link to to a video of that. I did wonder if that’s the cop Mel is dating, but all the reports about him say they met while she was dealing with the police in the wake of her divorce.

After I wrote all this I read the news that the nanny’s defamation case against Mel (go here for background) will go to trial on July 23rd next year. A judge just made that ruling in the case yesterday, and there’s a photo below of the plaintiff, Lorraine Gilles and her husband, Michael Bleau, outside court.

    Puke. There goes any respect I had for her.

  2. Louise says:

    I didn’t realise the nanny is now married.

    Mel looks a mess. I am SURE it wasn’t staged with Simon. Yeah right! Mel comes across as gobby and mucky.

  3. HK9 says:

    Sigh. Girl no. Just no….this is not going to end well.

  4. Carol says:

    That is one horrible haircut

  5. Beth says:

    Bad idea. Getting involved and falling in love with a guy who’s not officially divorced has a huge chance of ending in heartbreak

  6. minx says:

    Aw, come on!

  7. JA says:

    When does it go from a bad picker to her just being a equally messy person? No doubt her gross ass husband abused her but it seems like she was a dramatic messy queen before that. She is living the exact life she craves apparently.

    • Cbould says:

      Yeah, a good question. she’s in a prison of messy relationships…that she keeps choosing.

      Sighs. Love yourself.

    • Artemis says:

      Based on what the nanny says, they engaged in sexual activity without Belafonte present and that Mel asked. Even disregarding that without Belafonte’s coercive control being apparently/maybe separate from Mel’s need to have sex with her nanny, Mel does seem to veer into messy relationship with her eyes wide open. The fact that her legal team went IN on a woman who was hired to work for them while being barely legal (and not skilled as a nanny) just to prop up Mel’s position in the divorce was just disgusting. If the nanny was also a victim, it wasn’t necessary to treat her that way in public knowing that the nanny had receipts of their relationship.

    No wonder she was called ‘Scary’ Spice!

  9. pwal says:

    Whyy is she even dating? Her @$$ should be in therapy regarding the abuse and her man picking and man picking at the worse possible time problems.

    Seroously… get it together!

    • sendepause says:

      Yes, some therapy would be beneficial to her. Because changing a dude is easy, but to learn how to love oneself and to understand that one is worthy of respect, protection, vulnerability, gentle care, healthy boundaries, etc. is hard work. It seems unlikely to me that she would pick a good guy unless she addresses her underlying issues. She dated terrible men before, so. It´s seems like a variation of the same cycle.

    • Pumpkin (formally soup, pie) says:

      Yes,she should do therapy for herself and for the sake of her three daughters.

  10. Ruyana says:

    If Mel B’s life were a car she’d be steering it toward every pothole she could see and regularly driving over nails and broken glass. It’s like she’s determined to self-sabotage.

  11. Nicole says:

    She needs some serious therapy.

  12. QueenB says:

    “the America’s Got Talent judge met her beau while dealing with law enforcement in the aftermath of her divorce”

    Terrible idea. Is that even legal for him to get involved?

    • detritus says:

      I’m super side eyeing a police officer who got involved with a DV victim, while working on the case, while married. I mean even if he was peripherally involved thats messy.

    • Ange says:

      A relative of mine’s ex fiance married the cop that came to the door after she stabbed my relative in the leg so…. Messy can be both sides of the law! I can’t imagine being called out to that sort of thing and thinking ‘gee that woman seems great!’

  13. Bella bella says:

    First off, cop in dance video sure pinged my gaydar, so I can’t see him being Mel’s guy. Second, I am baffled how someone who comes across as so nice and genuine to the contestants can be so messed up with her personal life. Equally, she’s beautiful but the haircut sucks. Also, I thought she was dating a rat puppet!!

  14. AnnaKist says:

    Her hair looks horrible. No matter how edgy she’s trying to look, it simply does not suit her. As for this new “relationship”, there’ll be tears before too long. Instead of introducing a new fella into this mess, she should be focusing on her daughters and working to bring some peace and stability back to their lives, as well vas getting herself sorted out while embroiled in these legal woes. Let’s hope she doesn’t think a new baby will help matters…

    • AnnaKist says:

      Ha! It’s 1:20am here, and she just came on the telly, doing her latest ad for Jenny Craig. She looks lovely with long, dark hair.

  15. detritus says:

    Mel, girl. Take time to hang with your girls and be single. Even Halle has learned that.

  16. Ankhel says:

    Well, this is what I was talking about during her divorce from “Belafonte”, but got shouted down over because “victim-shaming”. To repeat: She’s too impulsive, loves obvious bad boys, and doesn’t think enough about her kids’ stability and safety. She should get therapy.
