Simon Cowell is more than just a good colleague to Mel B, he is also a loyal friend.

As we previously reported, the Spice Girls alum is currently wrapped up in a messy divorce battle as she's accused her ex, Stephen Belafonte, of emotional and physical abuse.

While we knew her X Factor costar had arranged for Scary Spice to stay in a hotel following a stint in the hospital in 2014, it seems the mother-of-three FINALLY left Belafonte for good after Cowell urged her to do so.

Apparently, Simon and others picked up that something serious was going on at home. Although Mel B made various excuses for her injuries, it was the American Idol judge who confronted the British singer about her husband.

It's said Simon called Stephen "a bad guy," "bad news," and regularly pushed his friend to leave Belafonte. Despite having attempted to leave her husband numerous times, it's believed Mel B credits Simon for inspiring her to really pull the plug.

Now that's friendship!

Who's telling the truth??

As we reported, Mel B was granted a restraining order against her ex husband Stephen Belafonte on Monday after he allegedly abused her and extorted her into having threesomes with the threat of releasing their sex tapes.

On Friday, the Spice Girls singer received a court order where Belafonte cannot distribute said sex tapes, as well as any sexually explicit photographs of the 41-year-old musician.

That same day, the film producer shot back and claims his ex wife is the one who is creating the media frenzy!

Mel B and Stephen Belafonte

If Mel B and Stephen Belafonte's divorce drama wasn't messy enough, it is even more scandalous now!

In the latest news stemming from the split, the singer's lawyers were in court on Friday getting a judge to prohibit Stephen from distributing sex tapes, photographs, or other sexually explicit material of the 41-year-old songstress.

TMZ reports Belafonte repeatedly threatened to release sex tapes before she got a restraining order, so we can see why Mel wants to make sure this doesn't actually happen! It's said she's gotten the court order and her ex is prohibited from releasing any of the above items.

The thought of children being raised by an alleged domestic abuser is pretty scary.

Which is why Mel B made one major change to her divorce filing: she does NOT want to share joint custody with Stephen Belafonte.

Since filing for a divorce last month, the Spice Girl has made some explosive accusations about her ex, which include domestic violence, sexual exploitation, and an illegal firearms scandal.

And while she endured a lot of trauma, the America's Got Talent judge apparently wasn't privy to all of Belafonte's skeletons!

Originally, Mel said she wanted joint legal and physical custody over the her three children — but has since learned other unforgivable factors that made her reconsider.

TMZ sources say Scary Spice had no idea Belafonte had a conviction for domestic violence involving another baby mama, and wasn't aware the conviction made it illegal for him to posses a gun.

Mel reportedly knew Stephen had a gun — though, given his alleged repeated abuse, she wasn't enthusiastic about it — but after finding out he was
