Melanie Brown, a.k.a. Mel B a.k.a. Scary Spice, is standing up for her husband Stephen Belafonte in the wake of rumors that he abused the pop sensation.

After weeks of Internet and media speculation about their marriage and whether Stephen Belafonte abused Mel B, she addressed the uproar on Instagram.

"This is for my fans havin problems with my Twitter ... will be back soon!" Brown, who was also hospitalized for an overdose, if you believe the tabloids, wrote.

"I'm very good was very polly but much better now and for the record my hubby never would lay a hand on me sorry took so long but any response fuels rumors."

This was alongside the photo above, in which she and Belafonte look very happy and content. So how did such scandalous rumors get started then?

Fans began to question the possible abuse of Mel B after the X Factor judge appeared to be bruised and cut in the reality show's live finale in the UK.

She had missed an earlier episode due to a hospital visit and wasn't wearing her wedding ring when she returned, celebrity gossip sources reported.

On Christmas Day, the singer said it all when she posted a picture with Belafonte and their little girls, writing, "Have a merry Christmas! #familytime #funday."

Here's hoping she did, too.

Belafonte has spoken out several times recently on social media and in the press, defending his marriage and insisting he has not abused his wife.
