Mel B has avoided a Monday trial after dropping the restraining order against her former nanny. The lawyer of the “America’s Got Talent” judge, whose real name is Melanie Brown, reached a deal with Lorraine Gilles Friday, Nov. 10, according to the Daily Mail.
“In the Brown v. Gilles matter the court received information that the case has been resolved,” Judge Mark Juhas said in a statement to the Daily Mail at Los Angeles Superior court. “As a result, no one will be appearing this morning. The domestic violence restraining order has been dissolved. The civil harassment restraining order was dissolved last Thursday.”
Brown had a restraining order against her estranged husband, Stephen Belafonte, which was withdrawn last week as the couple forged ahead to put their divorce behind them.
At the time, Belafonte told the Daily Mail he was the “happiest guy in the world.”
Other Celebs Who Issued Restraining Orders
Belafonte’s and Gilles’ restraining orders were due to be handled Monday, Nov. 13 after Judge Juhas merged the two into one trial.
Gilles claimed she had participated in threesomes with Mel B and her husband, which the singer said she was forced into. Mel B has also admitted she had a relationship with the ex-nanny.
However, Giles denied that and sued for defamation when the former Spice Girl deemed her a “homewrecker, prostitute, and extortionist” in court papers.
While things are moving forward between Mel B and Belafonte, the two must now sort out visitation between their six-year-old daughter, Madison, and step-father visitation for Belafonte and Angel, Mel B’s 10-year-old child with Eddie Murphy.
Mel also has one other child, 18-year-old Pheonix, from another relationship.
