Mel B Storms Off 'AGT' After Simon Cowell's Insult

Mel B Storms Off 'AGT' After Simon Cowell's Insult

Mel B threw a cup of water on Simon Cowell during America's Got Talent on Tuesday and walked off the stage after he cracked a crude joke at her expense. That sort of behavior from Belafonte has reportedly been going on since 2007, when he would "beat me down to let me know he was in charge". Not only is it a touchy subject, it's still fresh and yet to be resolved.

Mel did not appreciate the jibe, and expressed herself by standing from her chair at the judges' table and flinging her glass of water at the former "American Idol" judge before storming off the set. The official Twitter account of the reality show wrote that Mel B just left the building.

"America's #got talent" is now in the second week of quarterfinals, with more superb talents gracing the stage.

However, this isn't the first time Mel B. dumped her drink on Cowell.

After the show, Mel told "Extra's" Terri Seymour, "The act before made me cry, because it's all about dads and cancer and I just lost my dad". He responded, "Oh whatever". And an expensive one at that.

Brown married Belafonte in Las Vegas in June 2007. The star has three daughters - five-year-old Madison with Stephen, Phoenix, 18, from her first marriage to Jimmy Gulzar and Angel, 10, from a relationship with Eddie Murphy - and she and Stephen are now locked in a custody battle.
