Mel B has hit out at social media rumours that claimed she was a victim of domestic abuse.

The X Factor judge, who grew up in Leeds, West Yorkshire, denied her husband hit her after several X Factor viewers claimed they spotted bruising and an absent wedding ring after she returned to the show.

Mel B wrote on Instagram: “This is for my fans havin problems with my Twitter will be back soon! I’m very good was very polly but much better now and for the record my hubby never would lay a hand on me sorry took so long but any response fuels rumors”.

The 39-year-old was forced to miss the Saturday show of the X Factor final because she was in hospital suffering from a mystery illness.

However, several viewers took to social media claiming Mel B had bruising to her face and an absent wedding ring when she returned.

Mel B’s husband Stephen Belafonte also took to Twitter saying the accusations were “disgusting and untrue”.
