Mum of Mel B's nanny lashes out at star: 'Mel dragged her into a sordid lifestyle'

The mother of Mel B’s former nanny, Lorraine Gilles, has lashed out at the star and accused her of putting her daughter’s life at risk following her explosive divorce claims.

Lorraine was targeted by angry fans dubbing her a “homewrecker” after Mel accused her of having an affair with her husband, Stephen Belafonte, and even aborting his baby.

However, Lorraine insisted that she did not have a secret affair with Stephen, although she, Mel and Stephen all enjoyed regular threesomes together.

Now Lorraine’s mum, Angelika, has accused the former Spice Girl of preying on her “vulnerable” daughter, who started working for the star’s family when she moved to Los Angeles from Germany at the age of 18.

Speaking to The Mirror, Angelika said: “My daughter has received so many threats and hate mail that I can’t sleep at night. I am afraid that something is going to happen to her.

“Lorraine does not have the privilege to live in a villa with security or a bodyguard like Mel B. She is a simple girl who is trying to live a normal life in Los Angeles.”

Speaking about Lorraine’s sordid allegations about her, Mel and Stephen’s sex life, Angelika continued: “My husband and I are shocked and in total disbelief.

“Never in our wildest dreams would we have thought that Mel B is dragging our daughter into this lifestyle.

“I was shocked when I found out about everything from our daughter after all these claims were published. They portrayed Lorraine in such a bad way as if it was her fault that this marriage fell apart.

“We stand behind Lorraine and support her no matter what but I wonder what was going on in Mel B’s head. Lorraine was 18 at the time and Mel was 35.

“Her own daughter is 18 now. Would she want her to be in a position our daughter was in?”

Lorraine and Mel were so close that Mel and her children, Phoenix, Angel, and Madison, once travelled to Germany as guests at Lorraine’s sister’s wedding, with Angelika adding: “When she started working for Mel B and her family I thought she was in good hands. We spoke via Skype almost every day and also talked to Mel B a lot.

“At the time she was very nice to us and praised my daughter’s work. She told us that Lorraine is such a great babysitter, takes care of her children very well and is a loving person. She could not have asked for a better nanny for her kids.

“During all these years in which Lorraine has worked for her, Mel B had nothing but positive things to say about her.”

A stark contrast to Mel’s public allegations against Lorraine, with the star blaming the nanny for ruining her marriage to Stephen, with Mel also accusing her estranged husband of sexually and physically abusing her throughout their 10-year marriage.

In response, Lorraine filed a 128-page libel lawsuit against Mel, claiming that she and the star had sex “multiple times a week” and the sexual relationship between herself, Mel and Stephen made her feel “very uncomfortable”.
