MIAMI BEACH, FL- AUGUST 29:  (   Spice Girl Mel B’s three-year marriage is FINISHED, her husband Stephen Belafonte has revealed. The film producer told me in an emotional telephone outburst from the States: “Dude, it’s over. Mel’s coming back to the UK soon – but I won’t be coming with her.” 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 Mel’s bitter split from actor Eddie Murphy – 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 “hubby”.<br />
But pals have said for months that the pair’s rollercoaster relationship was finally hitting the rocks.<br />
And now Belafonte admits ­divorce is on the way. He told me: “There’s been problems lately. I don’t know what’s happening.”<br />
A friend of Mel said: “They’ve not been happy for a long time and there’s been rowing.<br />
<br />
<br />
“Mel’s been talking about getting out. They’re still talking to see if things can be worked out.<br />
“But she’s making plans to come back to the UK on a more ­permanent basis. Stephen hasn’t been ­mentioned as joining her and has been consulting lawyers.”<br />
When the couple wed in Las Vegas Mel’s mother Andrea called it a “big mistake”. Just weeks later it emerged Stephen had attacked his ex Nicole Contreras – mum of his daughter Giselle, six – in 2003. Mel and Belafonte will have to decide what to do about access to each other’s children – 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 Mel’s reality show The Mel B Project debuts on the Style ­Network.  Mel has spoken about the ­couple’s raunchy sex life, claiming they romped “five times a day”.  But the source said:
