Mel B and her husband Stephen Belafonte are reportedly calling it quits just months shy of her 10-year wedding anniversary.

According to court documents, obtained by ‘People’ magazine, Mel called off the relationship citing "irreconcilable differences" and is requesting for spousal support to Stephen to be terminated while requestist joint legal and physical custody of the 5-year-old couple's daughter, Madison Brown Belfonte.

The documents cite their separation date as December 28, 2016.

The divorce comes as a surprise since Brown posted an Instagram photo of herself and Belafonte in February captioning the picture:  "We have been through everything that would normally tear couples apart and we have come out on the other side stronger. You loved me before I even new how to really love myself, you are my world honey and let's not forget you are a bit of a d---head too.” She added the hashtags: "#tenyearsmarried #fightfortheineyoulove #theysaiditwouldntlast #bitcheswishtheyhadthis #nowtalkaboutme (sic)"

The couple married in Las Vegas in June 2007.
