Mel B recently ended her 10-year marriage, which was abusive, to Stephen Belafonte and has closed that chapter of her life by getting the tattoo of his name removed from her body.
Instead of undergoing laser treatments, the UK native had his name sliced from the tattoo, which read Stephen, till death do us part you own my heart.
“Even though I’ve taken the steps to remove Stephen’s name from my body, the domestic abuse will forever remain with me,” she told the Daily Mail.
The former Spice Girl was left with 13 stitches after having his name surgically removed.
Mel told The Metro that she may burn the flesh with his name on it or fling it into the sea in a ceremonial fashion.
The two were married in 2007 and got the matching tattoos in 2010. In the divorce documents Mel cited “irreconcilable differences” and revealed that she suffered physical abuse during most of their marriage.
