Mel B. Ain't Scared to Sue for $7 Million

8/31/2009 12:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If you wannabe Mel B.'s business partner, you better not allegedly screw her out of a bunch of money ... cause she won't think twice about suing the pants off you.

According to a new lawsuit, Scary Spice and her husband Stephen Belafonte are suing a guy named Dan Catullo for $7 million -- after they say a big business deal with him went real sour real fast.

Scary and Stephen claim they tried to join forces with Catullo in 2008, by setting up a company to profit off Scary's "music, touring, merchandising [and] public appearances."

The couple claims Catullo not only backed out of the $2 million deal, but that he also defrauded her in a number of ways ... including forging Scary's signature on a financial document.

Scary and Stephen are suing Catullo for $7 million for fraud, breach of contract and a number of other alleged offenses.

Why would anyone want to do business with this talentless woman? Like the rest of the Spice Girls, they're all well and truly over the hill.

Scary seems like a proper name, all this talk about girl power, yet she seems to live of money from men, no girl power here in my opinion just a lot of crap talk.

Mel and her husband are money-greedy losers. Stephen "I am not a Belafonte" Stansbury is the biggest con artist of them all. Can't wait to see how this unfolds, as I am sure something is fishy here. She is a talentless woman and I pray for anybody who does business with her. I am sure that they are lying here. I know of at least 5 people Stephen screwed over before he "cashed in" by marrying Scary

This washed up skank ho ain't got no chance, I don't know of a lawyer in his right mind who would take the case. Unless they pay upfront. Then they are still gonna loose, and the only one that ends up with money would be the lawyer...No Free Rides....

Don't know who is worse. Mel B and Stephen, or the manager. Dan Catullo is a sleeze and con artist himself.
