Sad news for former Spice Girls member and America's Got Talent co-star Mel B.

It seems the pop star's 10-year marriage to husband Stephen Belafonte has come to an end.

The 41-year-old singer filed for divorce on Monday, marking the end to a 10-year marriage that has had its fair share of controversy, including allegations of violence.

The two wed in 2007 in Las Vegas, and renewed their vows in front of family and friends one year later. In 2014, however, the troubles began as rumors of violence and physical abuse arose when Mel appeared on The X Factor UK with visible bruises and scratches on her face and body. Despite this, Mel always defended her husband, even when it emerged that he had a history of domestic abuse.

Mel cited irreconcilable differences as the reasoning behind the divorce. She listed joint-custody in the filing, choosing to share the responsibilities of the couple's 5-year-old daughter, Madison.
