Tell us what you want what you really, really want... well, if you're Mel B, that's a divorce. The former Spice Girls singer has reportedly filed for divorce from her husband of nearly 10 years, Stephen Belafonte, according to E! News. Mel B, formerly known as Scary Spice, has cited "irreconcilable differences" as a cause for the split from the film producer. The move comes months after she reportedly filed for separation on December 28, 2016.

Together the couple has a 6-year-old daughter, Madison Belafonte. They wed in June 2007 in a secret ceremony in Las Vegas after only dating for five months. They renewed their vows in 2010 in Egypt. Mel B is requesting joint custody of their daughter, but asking the court to terminate spousal support.

While she has not commented on the report, the news comes just weeks after Mel B revealed that her father had died in a touching Instagram post. "It is with great sadness after a 5yr battle to multiple myeloma cancer our loving father Martin Brown passed away age 63 peacefully yesterday," she shared. "Both of us his children were by his side and would like to say thank you to St Gemma's and all the doctors and nurses for there amazing care and support over the years. Please respect our privacy and let us as a united family grieve."
