UPDATE (11/10/17 at 9:04 a.m. ET):

Mel B.'s divorce from Stephen Belafonte is getting ugly, but at least there's some good news to share.

The America's Got Talent host and her ex have reportedly reached a partial settlement in their split as it pertains to custody of their daughter.

The 42-year-olds met up in court in Los Angeles Wednesday, November 8, to discuss the singer's civil harassment restraining order against her ex, Us Weekly reports.

There, she dropped the charges, and reached a "partial settlement" pertaining to custody of 6-year-old Madison.

We're glad they can put aside their drama for the kids!

Original story (10/26/17 at 9:04 a.m. ET):

Mel B has claimed she was drugged for most of her 10-year marriage to Stephen Belafonte.

The 42-year-old singer is embroiled in a bitter divorce battle with her estranged husband — who she previously claimed was physically abusive towards her and had an affair with their nanny.

Now it's reported the former Spice Girl was drugged the entire time. 

One of Stephen's lawyers, Philip Cohen said, "Miss Brown now takes the position she was drugged by Mr. Belafonte throughout the course of the marriage."

Stephen, also 42, has claimed that Mel led an "extravagant" lifestyle and had "wiped out" a $50million fortune she got during her time as a Spice Girl.

The couple married in Las Vegas in 2007 and Mel — who has six-year-old daughter Madison with Stephen, as well as 18-year-old Phoenix and 10-year-old Angel from previous relationships — filed for divorce in March.

She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split, and later accused her former spouse of domestic abuse.

It came shortly after she sported very visible bruises on her face and arms during the X Factor finale in 2014.

Meanwhile, Mel recently revealed her father Martin's death gave her the "clarity and strength" to get her life "on the right track."
 

The former Spice Girl suggested her father's passing played a crucial role in her decision to divorce Stephen earlier this year.

In an emotional post on Instagram, she wrote, "The pain of losing my daddy is beyond anyone could ever understand, but in the mist of all my raw emotions and pain of his passing he gave me the clarity and strength to set my life on the right track.

"I now live in my truth to correct with no shame the life every girl/daddy's girl should live, and that's a life with no fear or disrespect.
