Stephen Belafonte has spoken out following Melanie "Mel B" Brown's restraining order taken out against him.
Belafonte, who was married to Brown for almost 10 years, has denied her allegations of physical and emotional abuse.
"What matters most to Mr. Belafonte is the safety and well-being of his daughters and step-daughters," the 41-year-old's lawyers told ET on Thursday. "It's a shame that Ms. Brown elected not to proceed in a respectful and amicable fashion in this very private matter. In due course, Mr. Belafonte will be filing his response to the outrageous and unfounded allegations made by Ms. Brown, which allegations he vehemently denies."
"Mr. Belafonte is confident that the truth will come out when he has his day in court at which time he looks forward to being reunited with his children," the statement reads.
Belafonte must stay 100 yards (91 metres) away from Brown and her three children until the former couple's next hearing on April 24.
Brown alleges that Belafonte hired a German exchange student to be their nanny in 2010, and quickly began to pit the two women against each other. She claims that Belafonte would degrade her in front of the nanny, comparing their looks.
Then in the spring of 2014, Brown alleges that the nanny and Belafonte announced their pregnancy, and stated that they wanted “all three of us to live together.” Brown says that Belafonte later demanded that the nanny have an abortion, and used Brown’s money to pay for it.
