According to the Mirror, Belafonte has finally responded to Brown's abuse allegations by filing his court paperwork, claiming the two separated on March 1 this year — despite Mel B saying they split on Dec. 28 last year.
"It's a shame that Ms. Brown elected not to proceed in respectful and amicable fashion in this very private matter," Belafonte's lawyer stated in the docs. "In due course, Mr. Belafonte will be filing his response to the outrageous and unfounded allegations made by Ms Brown, allegations which he vehemently denies."
To make matters worse, Brown's request to recover her alleged sex tapes from Belafonte's secret storage unit was denied on Friday, according to PEOPLE. Brown said the naughty content is one of the reasons why the X Factor judge never felt safe leaving due to him having the power to blackmail her with it.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Brown filed for divorce on March 20 and filed a restraining order against Belafonte to protect her and their 5-year-old daughter, Madison — plus Brown's other two daughters from a previous relationships — Phoenix, 18 and Angel, 10.
In her explosive filing, she alleged the 41-year-old hot-head physically and mentally abused her over the course of their 10-year union, all beginning just 7-months after their nuptials.
According to reports, family and even costars were desperate to help Brown escape from her marriage from hell — especially after her 2014 overdose. Belafonte and Brown are set to appear in court on April 24.
