MIAMI BEACH, FL- AUGUST 29:  (www.mirror.co.uk)   Spice Girl Mel BÕs three-year marriage is FINISHED, her husband Stephen Belafonte has revealed. The film producer told me in an emotional telephone outburst from the States: ÒDude, itÕs over. MelÕs coming back to the UK soon Ð but I wonÕt be coming with her.Ó And I can reveal he has talked to lawyers in Los Angeles about a divorce from Scary Spice Mel.<br />
The couple wed in 2007 just six months after MelÕs bitter split from actor Eddie Murphy Ð dad of her daughter Angel, three. Only days ago the couple, both 35, were photographed kissing over lunch, and Mel has posted Twitter updates referring to her ÒhubbyÓ.<br />

ÒMelÕs been talking about getting out. TheyÕre still talking to see if things can be worked out.<br />
ÒBut sheÕs making plans to come back to the UK on a more ?permanent basis. Stephen hasnÕt been ?mentioned as joining her and has been consulting lawyers.Ó<br />
When the couple wed in Las Vegas MelÕs mother Andrea called it a Òbig mistakeÓ. Just weeks later it emerged Stephen had attacked his ex Nicole Contreras Ð mum of his daughter Giselle, six Ð in 2003. Mel and Belafonte will have to decide what to do about access to each otherÕs children Ð Mel also has daughter Phoenix, 11, from her first marriage to dancer Jimmy Gulzar.<br />
Ironically, US TV viewers will next week see the family together when MelÕs reality show The Mel B Project debuts on the Style ?Network.  Mel has spoken about the ?coupleÕs raunchy sex life, claiming they romped Òfive times a dayÓ.  But the source said: ÒPart of the problem is jealousy. They ar
