Mel B’s ex-nanny has claimed the former Spice Girl acted as ‘cameraman’ to film their alleged threesomes with her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte.
Lorraine Gilles, 26, alleged that she had sex ‘multiple times a week’ with the 42-year-old singer and felt ‘very uncomfortable’ about being filmed romping with the couple.
The married German babysitter made the explosive claims in a 128-page libel lawsuit that hit back at Mel’s allegations that Lorraine had an affair with Stephen behind her back and aborted his baby.

Explosive claims: Mel B’s ex-nanny has claimed the former Spice Girl acted as ‘cameraman’ to film their alleged threesomes with her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte
Lorraine claimed that the couple have footage of their threesomes on their mobiles and that she is petrified they will be leaked online.
‘These recordings would be extremely embarrassing to me and my family… I do not want any of them to become public,’ she wrote in the lawsuit.
In the dossier filed by her legal team with California’s Superior Court on Friday, Gilles hit back after Mel portrayed her as a ‘homewrecker’.
Mel, who filed for divorce from Stephen after 10 years of marriage in March, has alleged that Lorraine fell pregnant by her husband and then had an abortion – but Lorraine denies that the baby was his.
The America’s Got Talent judge also accused music producer Belafonte, 42, and Lorraine of taking money from her.

Hitting back, Lorraine said in the papers: ‘My sexual and employment relationship with Melanie continued for approximately seven years until September 2016.
‘During my time with Melanie, she and I had sex sporadically, sometimes having sex multiple times in a week.
‘On the other hand I never had any sexual relations with Stephen without Melanie’s instruction and without Melanie’s actual or apparent consent. At no point did I represent to Melanie that I was pregnant with Stephen’s child.
‘The only times Stephen and I had sex was when Melanie instructed Stephen and I to do so. Or when Melanie herself invited her husband to join us in the bedroom, at which point Melanie would often serve as the ‘camera man’ and record the sexual encounter or take part in the menage a trois herself.’
Gilles admitted she told Mel B she was excited to share a sex act with the singer at the weekend, adding in the explicit email: ‘It has been too long!’

Defiant: Mel B was spotted leaving what seemed to be her lawyer’s office on Wednesday as her divorce saga with Stephen Belafonte rages on
Lorraine, who arrived in California from her native Germany in 2009 when she was 18, met Mel B and Stephen at a West Hollywood restaurant when she spoke little English.
She claims Mel B invited her back to their home within days of meeting, where they had booze-filled ‘consensual group sex together’.
She alleged that after she returned to Germany six months later, Mel offered her a $6,666-a-month job as a nanny for her three daughters Madison, Angel and Phoenix.
Lorraine claimed Mel B told authorities that she was ‘a full-time caregiver for her children’ and helped her get a US visa.
She was fired in September 2016 after getting ‘caught in the middle of intensifying marital arguments between the couple,’ and handed a $300,000 severance package, the documents alleged.

Lorraine also slammed Mel B’s claims that she aborted Stephen’s baby – which she says came from a one-night stand with a stranger. Gilles even claimed Mel B paid for the termination.
‘Stephen and I never told Melanie I was pregnant with Stephen’s child in 2014, as is stated in Melanie’s declaration,’ she said in the papers.
‘Rather, I discovered I was pregnant several weeks after I went out for drinks with a friend at The Den in West Hollywood and had a one-night stand with a man I met at the bar. I immediately sought guidance from Melanie and spoke to her privately about the pregnancy. I felt comfortable approaching her because of our close relationship.
‘At no point did I suggest or imply that I believed Stephen to be the potential father of the child. In fact, I had not had group sex with Stephen for several months prior to my unexpected pregnancy. Instead, Melanie herself assisted me with arranging a medical appointment, advanced the cash for the procedure, and booked a hotel for me to stay in to recover.
Shocking: Gilles has been at the center of Mel and Stephen Belafonte’s divorce after it was alleged the three had engaged in a threesome, but the nanny allegedly continued the affair with the singer’s husband
‘On several occasions, Melanie actually visited me in the hotel and brought her children to make my recovery more pleasant.’
As part of the original court order against Gilles – in what’s now become a bitter legal tussle – Mel was granted access to a storage locker rented in Gilles’ name.
She claimed the locker contains alleged sex tapes and private photos Gilles and Belafonte could make public, as well as Spice Girls memorabilia and photos of her late father, who died in March.
But Lorraine, who is now working as a waitress, denied the claims that she is holding tapes and photos in storage – adding that the locker is in fact in Mel B’s name.
Gilles, who has been at the centre of the explosive divorce case for months, also claimed she was sent death threats by online trolls.
‘I have been actively trying to move past my time and relationship with Melanie. I simply wish that she shows me the same respect I’ve shown her over the past seven years,’ she wrote in the documents.

‘However this lawsuit became necessary after she refused to leave me alone and spread a number of lies about me and my relationship to her family on an international scale, all to benefit herself in her divorce proceedings.’
Talking about vile trolls, she said in the dossier: ‘I have received countless messages, threats and insults from random persons all over the world, shaming and degrading me based on the false image of me created by Melanie.’
Lorraine claims she was portrayed as a ‘conniving and backstabbing homewrecker who has extorted mass sums of money from Melanie’ in the divorce case.
She said people were now ‘viewing me as an ‘evil woman’ based on the statements made by Melanie’, in the papers.

Elsewhere in the shocking dossier, Lorraine claimed Belafonte paid $60,000 to her husband Michael Bleau to help his start-up business a nd not as a pay-off.
She also alleged that in late 2014, Mel B took ‘an entire bottle of aspirin’ and was hospitalised while filming the last stages of The X Factor in the UK.
Mel B previously said their relationship ended on bad terms – but Gilles refuted this and said she was invited to Mel’s daughter’s pre-school event after being sacked.
Lorraine detailed how Mel B apologised in a note to her. She said one of the singer’s daughter gave her a handwritten message that read: ‘I write this to say not only thank you for everything you have done for my kids, but also sorry.’
Her claims come after she ducked out of a seven hour ‘tell-all’ deposition with the former Spice Girl’s lawyers, claiming she was unwell, DailyMail.com can reveal.
Lorraine was due to sit down with Mel’s attorneys last week in her divorce case but cited illness for her no show.
In April, Mel was granted a restraining order against Gilles who was ordered by a judge not to harass the singer and to stay 100 yards away from her.

The same month, Gilles sued Mel for portraying her as a ‘home-wrecker’ and ‘prostitute’ in a declaration in support of a request for a Domestic Violence Restraining Order against estranged husband Stephen Belafonte.
The singer had alleged that Gilles carried on an affair with Belafonte, whom she also accused of physical and emotional abuse for much of their 10 year marriage, and claims the nanny became pregnant with his child and Belafonte convinced her to get an abortion.
But Gilles said the entire story was a lie and sued Mel – also known as Melanie Brown – for defamation, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress, asking for unspecified damages.
Gilles, 25, claimed that Mel, 42, and Belafonte, 42, targeted her when she first arrived in America from Germany aged 18, got her drunk and they had a threesome.
She claims she never slept with Belafonte without Mel knowing or participating and maintains she has ‘nothing to do’ with the couple’s divorce.
But in court papers filed last month, America’s Got Talent judge Mel slammed Gilles’s ‘improper and unsupported damages’ claim saying her declaration was ‘absolutely privileged’ and the complaint should be dismissed under anti-SLAPP rules.

The singer adds that the only purpose of airing their dirty laundry was to protect herself and the welfare of her young children.
Sources claimed Gilles had sex tapes in a private locker – and a a source close to the case told DailyMail.com that Gilles has refused to cooperate.
The source said: ‘Lorraine posed a huge threat to Melanie throughout the marriage. On one occasion she told Melanie she had tapes of her having sex with Stephen.
‘When the marriage ended, 15 boxes which contained Spice Girls memorabilia and personal effects belonging to Melanie’s recently deceased father went missing.
‘They had been put into storage and Melanie had been given a combination.
‘They were then moved to a different storage facility and the combination changed. Melanie was not able to access the new code because all her effects had been put into a unit in Lorraine’s name.’
‘Lorraine has been asked to hand over the codes. She has also been asked to give assurance over sex tapes, but has so far refused on both counts.’
In April, Mel was photographed trying to access a storage unit in Los Angeles but was turned away when she realized she didn’t have the correct codes.

The source says Mel’s camp is now suspicious about why Gilles didn’t turn up for her deposition last week.
‘Now she has refused to turn up for a seven hour questioning session with Melanie’s lawyers, surely this is not the behavior of someone with nothing to hide,’ the source said.
But when DailyMail.com asked Gilles’s husband Michael Bleu about her absence and he denied she had ‘trumped up’ being sick, saying his wife had food poisoning.
Bleu, founder of a tech start up in the events industry, said: ‘She was sick from food poisoning the whole week, she had to be driven to the doctor and she had medicine and she missed several days of work, this is not some trumped up thing, my dad said it was probably from the barbecue we had on Tuesday night.’
The source added: ‘Something isn’t right, maybe there is no physical threat (from Gilles) but the emotional distress and the emotional threat is huge.
‘Not only is Melanie deprived of hugely personal and emotional possessions from her father as well as all her Spice memorabilia, but the issue of the sex tapes is like a bomb waiting to explode.
‘Lorraine has made a career out of coming across as a sweet, hard-done by girl but she knows what she is doing.’
