Mel B’s ex-lover fears she’ll never find love again after destructive marriage to Stephen Belafonte

An ex-lover of Mel B believes her destructive marriage to Stephen Belafonte means she will never find love again.

Playgirl model Danny Lopes, 36, had a whirlwind romance with Mel and fears the star can no longer trust people. He said the 43-year-old Spice Girl’s bitter break up “has left her unable to trust anyone fully and let them into her heart.

“Mel will go so far, and then pull back emotionally – and that happened with me. It breaks my heart because Mel has so much to offer as a partner. She told me she loved me, I told her the same, but while physically we were a natural fit, she just pulled away from taking things further.
