Mel B’s make-up artist covered her bruises for years

Los Angeles, April 9 (IANS) Singer Mel B’s make-up artist has come forward to support her and claims he knew about her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte’s violent behaviour as he has been concealing her bruises for years.

The artist said he often overheard Belafonte being “aggressive and verbally abusive” to the former Spice Girl backstage, and frequently covered up a whole selection of injuries on her body, reports tmz.com.

The artist has even offered to draft a sworn declaration of all the marks he has seen over the years for Mel B’s lawyers to help with divorce proceedings.

Mel B and Belafonte are currently in a bitter divorce battle after 10 years of their marriage.

The make-up artist said Belafonte had been “controlling” her and often called Mel B and their children “ugly” or “disgusting”, tmz.com reported.
