Mel B granted restraining order against former nanny

  Mel B granted restraining order against former nanny Mel B has obtained a restraining order against her former nanny. The former Spice Girls star previously claimed her estranged husband, Stephen Belafonte, impregnated child minder Lorraine Gilles and urged her to get an abortion after Mel scoffed at an idea to let her and her child live with them. The latest action in the singer-turned-TV personality's messy divorce battle comes after Mel B alleged Gilles and Belafonte are extorting her with sex tape footage and items locked away in a mysterious storage unit in the former nanny's name. The Wannabe star's lawyers filed for a court order to gain access to the storage locker rented by Gilles, claiming it contains videos and images the nanny and Belafonte threatened to make public to humiliate Mel B. She claims the lock-up is also full of Spice Girls memorabilia and photos of her recently-deceased father. 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 's nanny Lorraine Gilles has been dragged into the former couple's explosive divorce battle. In legal documents, Mel B claims Stephen got Lorraine pregnant and then paid her £241,000 for ‘ nanny services’. Instagram.

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.

Stephen's lawyer Grace Jamra recently spoke out to defend Lorraine about the storage saga, saying, "She had nothing to do with the storage facility and, in fact, Ms. Brown terminated Lorraine before the items were placed in storage."

Stephen Belafonte's lawyer plays down storage locker drama

  Stephen Belafonte's lawyer plays down storage locker drama The lawyer for Mel B's estranged husband Stephen Belafonte has insisted their former nanny has "nothing to do with" their dispute over a storage facility. The former Spice Girls star claimed Stephen and Lorraine Gilles, who he reportedly got pregnant, were extorting her with sex tape footage and items, which they threatened to make public and had locked away in a mysterious storage unit in the former nanny's name. The locker also allegedly contained Spice Girls memorabilia and photographs of Mel's recently-deceased father. Mel reportedly filed a court order last week (ends09Apr17) to get access to the unit, but it was denied. However, she was granted a restraining order against Gilles on Tuesday (11Apr17), which forces the former nanny to stay more than 100 yards away from Mel and not remove any property from the storage locker. Stephen's lawyer Grace Jamra has now spoken out to downplay the storage locker drama, insisting there are no sex tapes in there and Gilles, who was fired in 2015, is not involved. "She had nothing to do with the storage facility and, in fact, Ms. Brown terminated Lorraine before the items were placed in storage," she said. "Unfortunately, it appears that Ms. Brown is creating further hysteria and seeking meaningless Court orders," she continued.

Lorraine Gilles denies the allegation but her sister Jacqueline Baartz claims she can't tell her side of the story.
