Mel B broke her twitter silence to retweet Billboard magazine's tweet about Adele breaking the record for longest charting album by a woman on the Billboard 200.

She hasn't tweeted in over a month.

It's been a tricky time for the former Spice Girl, who is currently filing for divorce from estranged ex Stephen Belafonte. And some pretty horrifying claims have been made against him, too.

Not only has Mel claimed she tried to commit suicide due to his abuse, that he beat her for ten years, forced her to have threesomes by blackmailing her with a sex tape, and the 26 year old nanny had to have an abortion after he got her pregnant.

On Friday, a Los Angeles judge granted a second order banning Stephen from distributing sex tapes, photographs or other sexually explicit material of Mel.

Stephen vehemently denies the claims, saying: "Someone’s set me up to look like a bad guy."

His lawyers' statement read: "It’s a shame that Ms Brown elected not to proceed in a respectful and amicable fashion in this very private matter.

"In due course, Mr Belafonte will be filing his response to the outrageous and unfounded allegations made by Ms Brown, which allegations he vehemently denies.

"When the court determines the truth, it will become clear that this entire charade was nothing more than a smear campaign intended to cover up Ms Brown’s own conduct during the marriage in light of her current involvement with a family television show, and in an effort to unfairly gain leverage both financially and with respect to custody of the children.

"When the degree to which Ms Brown has gone to create a false depiction of her marriage to Mr Belafonte is uncovered, real victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse will be understandably offended, angry and upset.

"Mr Belafonte is confident that the truth will come out when he has his day in court, at which time he looks forward to being reunited with his children."

Yikes. Mel's last tweet linked through to an Instagram post that read: "You have to be at your strongest when you’re feeling at your weakest."
