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!

There Are Some Bad Things About Camila Cabello's Grammys Red Carpet Look…

Does Camila Cabello think she's at prom?

On Sunday, the Bad Things singer made an appearance on the Grammys red carpet and, sadly, left us feeling underwhelmed. The X Factor alum dressed pretty conservatively as she wore a muted lavender/light blue MIRI Couture gown. In fact, in some photos, Camila's dress even looked a little gray. Oof.

To make matters worse, this appearance was the 19-year-old's chance to prove her solo artist status since bouncing from Fifth Harmony in December — and we don't think she really pulled it off. Sigh.

We mean, Cabello was giving off some serious Disney vibes and we were NOT about it. Sorry, Camila!

Better luck next year….
