A judge denied her request for the order on Friday (07Apr17), but a temporary restraining order she was granted against her 41-year-old estranged husband last week (beg03Apr17) prevents him from distributing the videos in any way.

Now, she has been granted a similar order against Gilles, who Mel B fired in January, 2015.

She claims her angry husband threatened to release the sex videos unless she rehired the childminder with a raise.

On Tuesday (11Apr17), a judge ordered Lorraine not to harass Mel B and to stay 100 yards away from her. Gilles has also been ordered not to remove any property from the storage locker.

Shortly after the ruling, Mel B turned up at the Public Storage lock-up, where she believes her personal stash is being kept, and when managers refused to let her in she returned with police officers.

It is not clear if she found the right unit or what was inside. She left empty handed and said nothing to the waiting paparazzi.

Mel B sued for defamation by former nanny Lorraine Gilles .
Mel B is being sued for defamation by her former nanny Lorraine Gilles. The former Spice Girls star previously claimed her estranged husband, Stephen Belafonte, impregnated the childminder and urged her to get an abortion after Mel scoffed at the idea of letting Lorraine and her child live with them. According to TMZ.com, Lorraine's lawsuit centres on this declaration, as well as Mel's allegation that she and Stephen were stealing money from her and had control over sex tapes Mel and Stephen made during their marriage. The website adds that Lorraine has accompanied her lawsuit with various pictures and other exhibits which she believes will convince a jury that Mel is lying. A person usually can't be sued for what they allege in court papers, but there is an exception in California family law cases which allows someone to sue if they are a third party not involved in the litigation, like Lorraine with Mel's divorce case. The Wannabe star's lawyers previously filed for a court order to gain access to a storage locker, rented under Lorraine's name, where she believes the sex tapes are being kept, but this was denied. However, a judge granted a restraining order against the former nanny, which prevents Lorraine from harassing Mel and to stay 100 yards away from her and stops her from removing any property from the storage locker.
