SPICE GIRL Melanie Brown has protected her assets from new husband STEPHEN BELAFONTE - by removing his name from the lease on their $5 million (GBP2.5 million) home, according to reports. The singer reportedly ordered Belafonte to sign a form confirming she is the sole owner of the Hollywood Hills home. A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "She is smart enough to know she has to protect herself and her children. "Stephen was happy to sign the form giving up rights to the property. He is not after Mel's cash." Brown and Belefonte married in Las Vegas in June (07).
