Mel B Sparks Cosmetic Surgery Rumours at MTV VMAs
Mel B prompted speculation that she has submitted to an undisclosed cosmetic procedure after looking notably different during a recent red carpet appearance in Beverly Hills.
The former Spice Girl, 42, revealed what appeared to be a smoother, tighter complexion while posing for photos at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, suggesting she may well have gone under the knife in the weeks following her acrimonious separation from husband Stephen Belafonte.
Mel’s shorter hair drew further attention to her features at the event, which she attended while fulfilling her current role as a judge alongside Simon Cowell and Heidi Klum on America’s Got Talent.

Sources previously claimed the mother-of-three looked markedly youthful after returning to the show’s Los Angeles studio after a summer break.
An insider told The Mirror: ‘When Mel came back to the show after a break in filming, she looked incredible.
She is well known for taking care of herself but she looks so much younger now. We’ve seen Ryan on set a number of times and he is incredibly handsome.’

The claims come as Mel’s estranged husband fights to block her attempt to keep their divorce hearings private, accusing her of ‘unimaginable havoc and damage’ to his reputation.
The former Spice Girl was granted a temporary restraining order against Belafonte, 42, after accusing him physically and emotional abuse throughout their 10 year marriage, as well as claiming he got their nanny pregnant.
In court papers filed in LA on Monday, he claimed Mel’s attempt to ban the press from covering the upcoming trial is to prevent the full extent of his claims against her – including allegations that she was addicted to cocaine and booze – from being made public.

A source told DailyMail.com that Mel’s drug and alcohol abuse were the real reason for the separation and that Belafonte was blind-sided by the star’s subsequent allegations of domestic abuse – something which he had denied and referred to as a ‘smear campaign’.
In the declaration, Belafonte says: ‘The biggest reason for my concern with respect to the safety of the children was due to the Petitioner’s habitual and consistent addiction to and abuse of cocaine and alcohol.
‘To make matters worse, my fear for the children’s safety was amplified due to the fact that Petitioner had fired the children’s nanny, who had been in the children’s lives sine 2010 and I did not want Petitioner using drugs and drinking around the children especially without anyone else present to care for the children.
‘Petitioner’s drinking and drug abuse had been a major issue throughout our marriage and was witnessed by the nanny, the children, and her own therapist, Dr Sophy.’
