She’s in the middle of a messy split from her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte which has included allegations of domestic violence.
And ex Spice Girl Mel B, 42, has now applauded Hollywood actress Nicole Kidman for highlighting the subject during her winner’s speech at Sunday night’s Emmy Awards.
Nicole, 50, picked up a Best Actress prize for her role in Big Little Lies, in which she plays a victim of domestic abuse.
Accepting her award, Nicole told the star-studded audience the drama had ‘shone a light’ on domestic abuse, describing it as a ‘complicated, insidious disease’.
Nicole’s powerful speech clearly struck a chord with Mel B, who was watching from home, as the former pop star took to Instagram to praise Nicole’s words and share her own message.
Alongside a screengrab of Nicole delivering her speech, Mel wrote: ‘We are not alone remember that, “the light is shined” again thanks to [Nicole Kidman] at the [Emmys] and always has been.
‘So please trust and believe, you don’t have to be a victim no more, you do have the power and support to stand up to this, leave all your shame and pain with your abuser,if not the “Diablo” WILL kill you.’
She added hashtags including ‘domestic violence survivor’, domestic violence awareness’ and ‘women empowering women’.
