After weeks of Internet and media speculation on the status of Mel B's marriage, the former Spice Girl, 39, took to Instagram on Sunday, Dec. 28 to defend her husband Stephen Belafonte.
"This is for my fans havin problems with my Twitter will be back soon! I'm very good was very polly but much better now and for the record my hubby never would lay a hand on me sorry took so long but any response fuels rumors #lovemyfamily #lovemyfans," she captioned a photo with Belafonte, 39.
Fans originally questioned possible abuse after the X Factor judge appeared to be bruised and cut in the reality show's live finale. She had missed an earlier episode due to a hospital visit and wasn't wearing her wedding ring when she returned.
Belafonte has spoken out several times on social media and in the press, defending his marriage and insisting he has not abused his wife.
On Christmas Day, the singer, whose full name is Melanie Brown, posted a picture with Belafonte and their little girls, writing, "Have a merry Christmas! #familytime #funday."
