A Los Angeles judge is understood to have granted film producer Belafonte's request for emergency spousal support to cover basic amenities including food, housing and phone bills, TMZ claim. The former Spice Girl also requested to terminate the court's ability in granting Belafonte spousal support in her filing.
The America's Got Talent judge is also responsible for a one-time payment of $140,000 to cover Stephen's attorney and forensic costs.
Brown and Belafonte split in February (17), but came face to face in court last week (07Jul17) for the latest hearing in their divorce battle. She was granted a temporary restraining order in April, after claiming Stephen cheated on her with their nanny.
This news comes shortly after the 42-year-old filmmaker recently claimed he is broke and has been couch surfing with friends after being kicked out of the home he shared with the "Goodbye" hitmaker, their daughter Madison, five, and the singer's children from previous relationships, 18-year-old Phoenix and Angel, 10.

"I am in fear of my safety and I am in fear of being irreparably harmed as a result of [Belafonte's] threats", she wrote in her court documents obtained by Us Weekly. "She said: "[He] threatened me with violence and threatened to destroy my life in every possible way". "When something good would happen for me, he would beat me down to let me know that he was in charge".
The exes secretly tied the knot in Las Vegas in 2007 after just weeks of dating and separated in December a year ago before the singer filed for divorce in April.
