Pop star and Tv personality Melanie Brown's husband Stephen Belafonte has been hospitalised in Los Angeles after complaining of back pain.

Mel B had to drive her man to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was tended to by doctors in the emergency room early on Tuesday (20Jan15), reports Tmz.com.

Brown herself previously spent time in doctors' care in her native U.K. last month (Dec14), when she had to be treated for an undisclosed but "serious" ailment.

Her hospital stay sparked unfounded rumours suggesting she had become a victim of domestic abuse, but Belafonte slammed the allegations and Brown subsequently took to Twitter.com to dismiss reports her marriage was in trouble.
