According to TMZ, the Spice Girls star has also been ordered to cough up a one time payment of $140,000 to cover Stephen’s legal fees, and her mother Andrea has blasted the decision.

Mel B’s mum is “disgusted” with the court order instructing her daughter to pay her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte $40,000 a month in emergency spousal support. She wrote on Twitter: “This would never happen in England disgusted with this news.”

Stephen’s request for emergency spousal support was granted by a judge in order to help pay for his food, phone and housing costs until the pair eventually work out a final divorce settlement.

The news comes weeks after a a court heard Mel “blew her multimillion Spice Girls’ fortune” when proceedings got underway in her bitter divorce battle.

 The singer faced ex Stephen Belafonte, who she says tortured her with years of physical and mental abuse, in court in Los Angeles where it was revealed the pair both have outstanding tax debts after making “improvident” lifestyle choices.

Grace Jamra, representing Belafonte, said: “She wiped out all her Spice Girls’ money, approximately 50 million if not more.”
