Mel B has claimed her ex-husband Stephen Belafonte stopped her from driving and manipulated her finances.
The Spice Girls star has spoken openly about the alleged abuse she suffered at the hands of her ex-husband - who she divorced last year - and has now claimed he stopped her from driving and took control of her finances.
In a frank and honest discussion on 'Loose Women' on Monday, she said: "An abuser cuts you off so you don't have anywhere to turn to and you can't drive a car, you don't have control over your finances.
"It just happens bit by bit, I'd be working and he'd go to the accountant meeting for me, - you think he's being really nice when he's stashing money everywhere and taking it out of my bank."
The 'America's Got Talent' judge - who has Phoenix, 19, with ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar, Angel, 10, with Eddie Murphy, and seven-year-old Madison with Stephen - explained how the producer laid down strict rules on the home and though she "fought" against some of them, others she simply accepted because she feared the ramifications of her arguing against her spouse.
