     SPEAKING OUT Stephen commented briefly outside their home

Melanie "Mel B" Brown has been granted a temporary restraining order against her estranged husband, Stephen Belafonte, ABC News reports.

She writes that this began a pattern: Any time she had any level of success, Belafonte would "beat [her] down to let [her] know he was in charge".

There were numerous times the singer tried to leave her husband, but he would threaten her with violence and said he would sabotage her life and career.

Speaking to a TMZcameraperson outside the couple's home, Belafonte denied the allegations.

The 41-year-old star made a lot of disturbing claims in her court declaration which means Stephen to stay away from her and her three children.

Belafonte allegedly forced her to "participate in sexual intercourse with him and random women".

"I believe Respondent took my passport so as to intentionally delay my travel such that I would not see my father prior to his death", she reveals in the papers.

She also claims that he got their nanny pregnant.

Brown filed to divorce her husband of almost 10 years on 20 March, citing irreconcilable differences.

Four years later, Belafonte and the nanny told Mel B that they are expecting a child together and wanted the three of them to live in the same house. TMZ has detailed Brown's abuse claims at length.

The singer asked her husband how she was expected to work on television after that, to which Belafonte allegedly replied that she should have thought of that before she chose to "flirt with and f**k Usher".

Brown listed the date of separation as December 28 according to court documents obtained by the Daily Mail and is seeking joint custody of their five-year-old daughter Madison. She claimed in Monday's documents that Belafonte quickly became "controlling, manipulative and abusive" after they tied the knot in 2007 following a short courtship.

- Belafonte has a gun from home but he's not supposed to have one due to a domestic violence conviction involving another woman.
