BUMUHOS ang suporta kay Melanie “Mel B” Brown habang nasa gitna ng sigalot sa pakikipagdiborsiyo sa dating asawa na si Stephen Belafonte.
Nakapanayam ng ET ang dating co-star ni Brown sa America’s Got Talent na si Nick Cannon nitong Lunes at inaming nagkapalitan sila ng ilang emails ng 41-anyos na singer, na nakakuha ng temporary restraining order kamakailan laban sa dating asawa na inakusahan niya ng pambubugbog at pananakot sa loob ng kanilang sampung taong pagsasama bilang mag-asawa.
“We’ve both been so busy, but more than anything, just wishing her well and praying she’s in the best place she can possibly be,” saad ng 36-year-old Wild ‘N Out host sa ET.
Inihayag din ni Cannon ang kanyang pagkagulat sa alegasyon ng physical abuse, dagdag niya, “I haven’t been paying that close of attention to it, but we just want her to be as happy as possible and in the safest place possible.”
Nagsalita rin si Simon Cowell na isa sa judge ng America’s Got Talent, at sinabi sa British publication na The Sun, “She’s under pressure, but I think she’s in a good place,” ani Cowell, 57, at dinagdag na hindi nakukuha ni Brown ang “recognition she deserves.”
“If you think about what she’s gone through, how hard she works and how I saw her try to handle this situation, it was astonishing,” pag-amin ng X Factor judge. “It really made me think about her as a person, what she’s achieved as a working mum and how she’s managed to balance everything.”
Ayon sa sources na konektado kay Brown, si Cowell ang nakakumbinsi sa singer na tuluyan nang hiwalayan si Belafonte.
Nagpakita rin ng suporta ang iba pang mga miyembro ng AGT family ni Brown.
“Our hearts go out to her,” saad ng kasamang judge na si Howie Mandel sa ET. “I knew about it before it got announced and some of the things that were happening in her life — she lost her father, her marriage is over. But, you know, she is so strong as a mother and as a professional, and girl power wasn’t just a brand, she lives and eats and breathes it.”
Sinang-ayunan ito ng AGT judge na si Heidi Klum, “I think it was good for her that we are so busy and that we are here all day, and you see fun acts that make you laugh, so I think that was helpful instead of being on vacation because then you have time to think. We are a family and we take care of each other. We all have each others’ backs, so I think that was good.” (ET Online)
