Mel B defended by mother

MEL B’s mother Andrea Brown has spoken out to defend her daughter against accusations she’s put her children at risk with her social life.

The America’s Got Talent star’s friend and former nanny Rusty Updegraff has told a judge presiding over her custody battle with ex-husband Stephen Belafonte that she’s too wild but Andrea Brown has rubbished his claims.

She fumed, “I can no longer sit back and let this man try and ruin my daughter and traumatise my grandchildren.” And Andrea accused Rusty and Stephen of trying to smear her daughter. She added to The Sun on Sunday newspaper, “If I thought for one second my grandchildren were in danger and my daughter was out of control I’d have been straight on a plane.” – BANG!
