According to reports, the former nanny that Mel B accused of ruining her marriage to Stephen Belfonte is alleged to have helped him purchase a £1million home in Los Angeles.
Mel, 45, is reportedly 'furious' that Lorraine Gilles has given Belafonte '£154,000' towards a five bedroom home, according to The Sun.
The Spice Girls star is currently living at her mum's bungalow in Leeds, had to make a payment of £1.8million to Gilles last year after calling her a 'prostitute.'
The songstress agreed to an out of court settlement after making the accusations in her divorce declaration against Belafonte.
As well as calling Gilles a “prostitute”, Mel also alleged her ex-husband got the nanny pregnant and coerced her into threesomes.
Both Belafonte, 45, and Gilles, 28, denied Mel’s claims.
Mel moved into her mum Andrea's home as she returned to England following the costly divorce.
A source told The Sun: "It is extremely galling for Mel to see this when she hasn’t got any money to buy a house of her own.
“Lorraine got a lot of money from her case against Mel – now it is revealed that Lorraine has given hundreds of thousands to Stephen to go towards a house. Mel is aghast at the cheek of it all.
"She’s also paying Stephen a fortune and she’s got so many legal fees to pay. If she could afford to buy her own house she would — but she can’t.”
Court documents filed in California back in August are reported to show that Belafonte received $200,000 (£154,000) as a 'gift' to buy property in July last year.
It's also alleged the money was put straight into escrow and not into his bank accounts.
Gilles began working as a nanny for the former couple in 2009 when she was an 18-year-old student who moved to the US from Germany.
During a legal deposition, she admitted that she had sex with Belafonte 10 to 15 times, despite previously denying the affair.
Mel obtained a five-year restraining order against Gilles, 29, back in 2017.
A judge ordered the nanny to stay at least 100 yards away from the star and also banned her from going near Mel's children.
Mel filed legal papers in March this year claiming Gilles was staying with her ex-husband and their eight-year-old daughter Madison.
In documents seen by The Sun, Mel claimed Belafonte told Madison to refer to Gilles as "Jenny" to keep the relationship a secret.
It's claimed Madison told her sister Phoenix - alarming the 21-year-old, who knew about the restraining order.
In court papers filed in LA Mel says: "I am shocked that our daughter would be forced to perpetuate a lie formed by her father simply to keep his mistress/girlfriend/nanny out of trouble.
"It is psychologically abusive for our little girl to be forced to keep secrets for her father or be made to believe that she cannot share what she wants . . . with her mother."
Gilles has been seen at the same bungalow as Belafonte and was also photographed picking Madison up from school.
Mel is currently fighting for custody of Madison and wants to bring her youngest child back to the UK to live with her and her other children Phoenix and Angel, 12.
Daily Star Online has contacted representatives of Mel and Stephen for for comment.
