Is she for real or just trying to prevent her estranged husband from getting any money? Mel B has resorted to asking her friends for money following her financial woes and costly divorce from Stephen Belafonte, new reports claim.
According to the Mirror, the former Spice Girl has put down a six-figure deposit on a lavish £1.5million mansion in LA – but is afraid she will lose it, if she cannot drum up the remaining amount needed to pay for the pad.
Having reportedly blown her £38 million fortune on her ‘extravagant lifestyle’, a source revealed that she has now ‘turned to pals’ for financial help, in the hope they will save her from losing any more money.
A source revealed to the paper:
‘It’s well-known Mel’s finances are not great, but if the house deal falls through she’ll be in an even worse situation
‘She just can’t afford to lose any more cash. So she’s turned to pals in her hour of need and they’re trying their best to help.’
The expensive move is only made more stressful by the fact that she is struggling to sell her previous home, which she shared with ex Stephen Belafonte until their split in February.
The pair put their property on the market in March for £7.2million, but reduced the price by a whopping £800,000 two weeks later.
