We hope she's okay!

Sadly, this came after she split from hubby Stephen Belafonte. There are also rumors that he abused Mel B, but those have been denied by many.
When she missed the X Factor UK taping, it was reported that it was because of stomach pains, but a source revealed something much different, saying:
"[She] was hospitalized because she mixed tranquilizers, including Xanax, with alcohol. It was absolutely accidental, and not intentional. She wasn't suicidal, but the pressure of being back in London brought a lot of unresolved issues to the surface concerning being estranged from mother, Andrea, and the rest of her family… Since being back in London, Mel lost a lot of weight, and that is why she had bruises on her arms. Nurses had a very hard time getting an i.v. started on her, and the bruising was a result of that… While Mel has been given medical clearance to return, she feels extremely vulnerable…a lot has gone down in just a short period of time. She has been paralyzed with fear for the past week living in the hotel, and the British press has been relentless in covering the story. The only person she feels safe with is Dr. Sophy. The plan is for him to go to the hotel, meet with her, and hopefully feel comfortable enough to get on the plane to come back to Los Angeles."
Now, Mel is doing well, and is at a London hotel with her daughters Phoenix and Angel. Belafonte is in Los Angeles with their three-year-old daughter Madison.
Our thoughts are with Mel, and we're glad she's okay!
