Wow. And we thought it was news that Bruce Willis has a new girlfriend named Karen McDougal.

Spice Girl Melanie Brown has shot that piece of celebrity news off the front page by actually getting married to music producing boyfriend Stephen Belafonte. Two months ago. We can’t say we saw this one coming.

The couple apparently tied the knot on June 6, according to a marriage license filed in Clark County. This was before Brown went off on Eddie Murphy for failing to pay child support for the daughter they created together.

In a statement to People, Brown’s rep said: “Regarding the marriage, Mel and Stephen have know each other for many years and were great friends first. Now they are deeply in love. The two are very happy together.”

Well, that’s good. We just wonder how Blake Fielder-Civil feels about Belafonte perhaps taking over as the most popular, random husband in Hollywood.

According to Scary Spice, all the celebrity gossip attention doesn’t bother her new beau: “We don’t really play into that world. We just have our own little thing going on.”

And that “thing” is now a union as official as that of Usher and Tameka Foster.
