Although Mel B and Stephen Belafonte have an open marriage, she's rumored to have put her foot down because he's TOO open. Get the deets inside and find out what folks are saying about Mariah Carey's gag order on Nick Cannon.
In case you didn't know, "AGT" judge Mel B is famously fluid with her sexuality. Men...women...love is love. And it's widely rumored that her "European" views on love extend to her open marriage with hubby Stephen Belafonte. But even the most sexually liberal women have limits! And Stephen reached his (allegedly).
According to a Dish Nation insider, Mel B snapped at Stephen because he "is taking things too far.” This month alone, Stephen was spotted with two other women and it's starting to look sloppy.
The source continued, “She and Stephen have a pretty open marriage, but she wants him to be more careful about who he’s photographed with. Mel doesn’t like to keep tabs on Stephen, but when friends start calling her and asking if they’re still together, then it’s a problem. Even though there are photos of her out there kissing women, she doesn’t want her kids seeing pics of daddy with other women.
Mel is trying have to her cake and eat it too. She plays by her rules and Stephen knows he has to follow them. He told Mel the women in the photos were just friends, but she doesn’t care. You probably won’t be seeing Stephen out at clubs with random women anytime soon — unless of course Mel’s there too.”
Hmmm.....How's that for a role reversal? The source added that because Mel is the family's breadwinner she feels entitled to her double standard. Hmph.
A few days ago, she posted on Instagram, "I married my best friend,love of my life, @stephenthinks11,it's been over 7years and we still have the best fun times together,date nights and memories keep coming,every woman deserves true unconditional love and support,feel soooooo lucky I found mine already,hahaha and THEY said it wouldn't last paaallleeeezzzzzz"
Whatever kind of arrangement they have going on...it's working for them. We can't hate....
In other couples (or should we say ex-couples):
Don't expect to get any dirt on Mariah Carey during Nick Cannon's next comedy special. According to TMZ (via a source close to the couple) Mariah put a gag order on Nick that's so tight it will cost him major coins if he speaks about her. They said the confidentiality agreement is completely one-sided. While Nick can't speak about their divorce at all, Mariah has the right to announce the split on her terms.
All we know (via Nick) is that they are living separately. We guess that one was free....
