Mel B in hot water with divorce judge

  Mel B in hot water with divorce judge Mel B is in trouble with the judge overseeing her contentious domestic violence trial after a series of delays.  Mel, real name Melanie Brown, missed a deposition for which she was scheduled to appear in Los Angeles on Friday (03Nov17) because she is filming a commercial in Australia - and Judge Mark Juhas was not impressed.

In the meantime, Judge Lyons "strongly urged" both parties to discuss settling out of court . Mel , who once introduced Lorraine as “my best friend” to her America’s Got Talent boss Simon Cowell , was so close to the nanny she even visited her family in Germany.

Mel B is reportedly close to settling court battle with her former nanny Lorraine Giles.

The 42-year-old singer had a five-year restraining order against her ex-employee, who she claimed had an affair with her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte and aborted their baby, in May this year, which meant the carer was forbidden from harassing the musician and had to remain at least 100 yards away from her.

But the Mail Online has reported the 'Wannabe' hitmaker's lawyers have met with Lorraine's legal team and have had a number of lengthy meetings in a bid to settle the case.

And it is believed both advisors are close to reaching an agreement, which could see the restraining order lifted by the judge when the case is formalised in court on November 13.

Mel B could face MASSIVE £1.6 million legal bill over ex - nanny Lorraine Gilles defamation lawsuit as tense court battle with Stephen Belafonte rages on. The two parties are being urged by judge to settle the case out of court , with Mel B already facing a £195,000 legal bill.

Although the restraining order may be sorted, Lorraine's defamation case against Mel - who has daughters Phoenix, 18, Angel, 11, and Madison, six, from three different relationships - is still pending.

Lorraine has continued to deny claims made by the former 'X Factor' judge, in which Mel accused the former nanny and Stephen of trying to blackmail her with sex tapes, and sued the Spice Girls band member for defamation after Mel supposedly branded her a "homewrecker" in previous court documents.

But Lorraine has claimed she was forced to partake in sordid sex sessions with the former couple.

Lorraine's legal papers at the time stated: "At no point did Gilles and Belafonte engage in any sexual acts without Brown's knowledge or participation and at no point did Gilles and Belafonte represent to Brown that Gilles was pregnant with Belafonte's child."

This news comes shortly after Mel withdrew her domestic violence restraining order against Stephen, which is likely to mean the 42-year-old producer can see Madison.
