MEL B has reportedly been placed 'under investigation by police' after allegedly intimidating a witness in her divorce battle with estranged husband Stephen Belafonte.

The former Spice Girl is currently locked in a bitter dispute with Stephen after she claimed he physically abused her.

A law enforcement source claimed to TMZ that Siya - a rapper who has appeared on TV show Sisterhood of Hip Hop - showed police officers the messages and a felony witness intimidation case was opened.

Mel allegedly sent the texts last Saturday, with Siya then filing her report on Monday.

TMZ also claims Siya was prepared to testify threesomes Mel and Stephen reportedly shared with others during their marriage and that the singer frequently used illegal drugs.

However, sources close to the singer - known as Scary Spice in her girl band days - deny Siya was even a close friend of hers and refute any claims of witness intimidation.

The claims come just days after Mel was pictured for the first time with her Beverley Hills Cop 'boyfriend'.

The star was rumoured to have grown close to married policeman Ryan Lawrence, and have now been seen together for the first time in a snap taken by her daughter Phoenix.The 18-year-old uploaded the picture, taken three months ago, to Snapchat and shows Mel speaking into her phone while Ryan opened his food as the trio enjoyed lunch together.It was claimed last month the 40-year-old had found love with Ryan, who is a crisis and hostage negotiator.TMZ claimed that the former Spice Girl has been dating the policeman in secret for the last few months, amid her bitter divorce battle.According to TMZ, Mel, who met the cop through mutual friends, is ‘nuts’ about him and he regularly stays at her house ‘5 or 6 nights a week’.However Mel recently denied she was dating the policeman - who is 10 years her junior - insisting she was "happy" and "single" while filming America's Got Talent.After watching an Air Force Academy group's performance and telling them how impressed she was with their efforts, Mel said: “And yes ...The MP told the Ham&High this morning: “I have reported the crew to police.I cannot say much about the incident as they are investigating. I am only 4ft 11 and the reporter was 6ft.” This comes as Channel 4 has lodged a complaint about Ms Siddiq with the Labour party over comments she made to pregnant producer Daisy Ayliffe at an incident on Friday.The incident, which was filmed and shown on Channel 4 news on Tuesday night, showed Ms Siddiq being fronted by correspondent Alex Thomson over a story about the MPs aunt Sheikh Hasina, prime minister of Bangladesh.Mr Thomson had fronted the MP during a rally to free her constituent Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe from Iran.
