The Spice Girls singer was ordered in September to pay $400,000 in legal costs and an additional $100,000 in accounting fees to Stephen Belafonte, her ex-husband but she has now asked a judge to lower the sums because she cannot afford to make the payments.

In a written declaration, Mel explained that if Los Angeles Superior Court doesn’t “modify” the order, she’d be left “insolvent.” Mel B wrote: “I will effectively be insolvent and will in all likelihood have to file for bankruptcy. I simply do not have the ability to pay such an exorbitant sum.” Mel B bankrupt.

Former President and current presidential candidate John Mahama is blaming the Akufo-Addo government for the surge in highway robbery cases across the country.

This, he said, has reduced the high morale of security officers who have sworn to protect lives and properties. The NDC’s flagbearer addressing a mammoth rally at the Koforidua Prison’s park promised to resource the security services to fight crime when he recaptures power.

Harry Kane marked his 300th appearance for Tottenham with his 200th goal as Jose Mourinho’s side dominated a Europa League mismatch in Bulgaria.

Only 1960s legends Jimmy Greaves and Bobby Smith stand ahead of him in the club’s records and if he stays fit – and at the club – the England captain looks set to break record after record.
