Mel B is feeling footloose and fancy free after filing for divorce from Stephen Belafonte -- whom she claims was abusive during their ten-year marriage. The former Spice Girl showed off her thin pins in white jeans and grey thigh-high boots at Soho House on Saturday, accompanied by friends and her two daughters Madison and Phoenix.
Friday wasn't exactly a good day for the singer -- her former nanny filed suit against her claiming defamation after Mel's divorce filing characterized Lorraine Gilles as a "homewrecker, prostitute and extortionist." Gilles says she was taken advantage of as an 18-year-old German au pair, plied with alcohol and money to have sex with Mel alone and sometimes with hubby Stephen. Mel accused Gilles of extortion, saying the nanny got pregnant with Belafonte and, in collusion with her estranged hubby, threatened to release sex tapes if Mel didn't pay them off.
Looks like Mel B's divorce scandal could be a made-for-TV movie in the not-to-distant future! We'd tune in!

She's getting all the feels!
Serena Williams announced she was five months pregnant with her first child last week, and her pregnancy hormones must be kicking into overdrive, because she penned a touching letter to her unborn child on Instagram this morning.
"My Dearest Baby, you gave me the strength I didn’t know I had. You taught me the true meaning of serenity and peace. I can't wait to meet you. I can't wait for you to join the players box next year," she wrote on a photo of herself cradling her bump on the beach.
"But most importantly, I am so happy to share being number one in the world with you.... once again today. On @alexisohanian bday. 😉 from the world's oldest number one to the world's youngest number one. -Your Mommy," she added.
It sounds like she's ready to ace motherhood!

What traditional dating rules?!
Jennifer Lopez makes an appearance on Ellen today, and the singer revealed that she was the one who made the first move on A-Rod!
"It's very simple. I was having lunch somewhere and I saw him. He passed by. Afterwards I went outside, but for some reason I felt like tapping him on the shoulder and said, 'Hi," she confessed to the talk show host.
Jenny from the Block said that they starting talking about the fact they both live in LA, and that's when the MLB legend suggested they hang out. They didn't exchange numbers, though. Apparently, the baseball star already had the Bronx-born beauty's digits from a prior professional matter.
"He [later] texted me, said, 'Let's go out to dinner,' and I said, 'OK,' We had a nice dinner," she continued.
When the TV funny lady suggested the couple enjoyed a sleepover after their first date, the Shades of Blue shut that down!
"No. Mama don't sleep over on the first date," she quipped.
This is the reason why she's our queen!

We don't understand how a smart man could be so stupid!
Amber Heard and Elon Musk went public with their relationship on Instagram over the weekend, and people can't believe the billionaire is getting serious with the volatile actress. The Rum Diaries
star and the Tesla founder have been dating for about a year, but have kept their romance under wraps up until this point.
The two are currently on vacation in Australia, and were also photographed holding hands and cuddling while zip lining together. The blonde beauty got involved with the father-of-six shortly after her messy divorce from Johnny Depp, and she certainly has a type.... super rich and powerful!
According to Heard's father, the couple are already thinking long-term, too.
"Amber and Elon are both very serious about each other. She would love to get married. One of the things they want to do is settle down and have a family. They are making plans for that," he told Grazia
He better figure out how to get to Mars in the event of a breakup, because we saw how well that went for the Pirates of the Caribbean

She only wants her pregnancy documented with carefully crafted images, apparently!
Beyonce and Jay Z enjoyed date night at Nobu Malibu yesterday evening, and they created quite the scene when they left the restaurant. Bodyguards and chauffeured SUV's went out of their way to shield the pregnant singer's baby bump from photographers, and either she was feeling self conscious about her changing shape, or she simply wants to be the only one to release snapshots of her unborn twins.
There's a lot of speculation about the gender and due date of Queen Bey's upcoming arrivals, but we still don't have any concrete answers. Rumor has it that she's expecting a boy and a girl, and they are due sometime in May to early June.
One thing that's for sure is when the babies do make their big debut, they're going to be kicking it in style in a $500K nursery!
"Bey and Jay knocked out a wall between two bedrooms to create a master suite-size nursery inside their LA home. The twins will have matching cribs and rockers and designer sheets totaling $30,000, plus a $50,000 state-of-the-art sound system," a source dished to Life & Style
"She commissioned a $20,000 mural on the ceiling, complete with glowing stars. It’s incredible. It’s the entire galaxy above the nursery," the source added.
This is a more anticipated birth than the royal babies!

She's not saying he's guilty, but IF he is ... he should be punished!
Kesha, after filing her own sexual assault lawsuit against producer Dr. Luke, is speaking out about the sexual assault allegations that have rocked Fox News. After the network's top-rated, top-grossing show host Bill O'Reilly was let go last week, the singer is certainly siding with the women -- the multiple women -- who've accused O'Reilly of misconduct, saying The O'Reilly Factor host should be punished, if he's guilty.
Just last month, Kesha's attorney filed an amendment to her October 2014 suit against Dr. Luke, claiming breach of contract and unpaid royalties. A judge denied the unpaid royalties claim, saying Kesha actually owes her former producer $1.3 million and neglected to provide proper accounting AND denied the breach of contract claim, saying Kesha didn't act in good faith by discontinuing to perform under her current, valid contract, so she couldn't claim the absence of good faith on the part of Dr. Luke.
Basically, Kesha wants OUT of her contract with Dr. Luke and Sony and every single legal attempt to escape has been shot down. The singer claims Dr. Luke is guilty of sexual assault and battery, sexual harassment, gender violence, civil harassment, violation of California's unfair business laws, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and negligent retention and supervision. Dr. Luke has denied all allegations.
Now Mr. O'Reilly, on the other hand, was fired from Fox News BUT will be given a "golden parachute" severance of a reported $25 million. Hmmm ... retiring with a fat bank account. Is that a punishment?

Poor Kash! And poor Kim!
star Kim Zolciak posted this heartbreaking pic of her son Kash in a hospital bed with his daddy Kory holding his hand after the boy, 4, underwent emergency surgery following a vicious dog attack.
Kim wrote: "I don't know where to start. The last 14hrs of our lives has been a living nightmare. My sweet @kashbiermann was bit by a dog and had very traumatic injuries. I've never prayed so hard, or been so scared in my life. My husband, our daughters, Kj, Tracey, his nanny, Michael Beck and everyone close to us all pulled together and held each other up.

This is the risk you take when you wear fur, celebs! Take note -- Kylie Jenner comes from a family of fur-wearing women (and men -- Kanye has fur pieces in his Yeezy collection) and animal rights activists have taken notice.
Protestors came out en force to demonstrate at a paid appearance Kylie made at the Sugar Factory in Las Vegas, Saturday night. The held signs featuring photos of animals caged, ready for slaughter, all to make a fur coat. They chanted and called Kylie an animal abuser.
Now Kylie's known to love animals -- she's got a few dogs running around her house and she's always posting pix of them on social media. But clearly these activists see a disconnect -- how can Kylie love her pets but wear the pelts of other animals on her back, all in the name of fashion?
Kylie Jenner's not the only one in the family getting slammed for her fashion choices -- half-sister Kourtney faced backlash online this week after posting a photo of herself with a fur coat draped over her shoulder, riding in an elevator with a glass of Champagne in one hand and a Hermes bag in the other. Not only was it an ostentatious show of wealth (we expect it from the Kardashians) but it highlighted her love of fur and plenty of haters had something to say about it. So much so, Kourt ended up taking down the photo because she couldn't handle the negative comments.
Hey, KarJenners -- if you're gonna wear fur, either speak out and stand up for your choice or make a change! If you can't make an argument for wearing dead animals, maybe you should stop!
