Mel B's 'Peep Show' Exposes Her to Lawsuit

9/14/2010 7:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel B's booty shaking -- on the Las Vegas strip and in exercise videos -- just got her sued by a company looking for a share of her financial pie.

BMEDIA filed the lawsuit today against Mel, her husband Stephen Belafonte, and their business partners for fraud and breach of contract.

According to the suit -- filed in L.A. County Superior Court -- BMEDIA struck a deal in 2008 to invest in upcoming Mel B projects to the tune of $500,000. In the docs, the company claims it was assured -- by team Mel -- that she had concerts, producers, and an album lined up that would reap big money.

In the suit, BMEDIA claims team Mel bailed on their deal and instead went on to perform nearly nude in "Peep Show" at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas and make her "Totally Fit: Mel B" exercise vid. BMEDIA thinks it contractually deserves a cut of those moneymakers, according to the suit.

BMEDIA is suing for a big chunk o' change -- its $500 grand investment plus interest, and the 12.5% cut it says it was promised in the original deal.

Calls to Mel's rep have not been returned.

Mel B should thank dancing with the stars for the life they gave her. When Spice girls ended she was doing nothing in LA and her only claim to fame was she got knocked up by Eddie Murphy, who found her so annoying he never even spoke to her again.

Hum, 12.5% of $2.00.....yeah, worth a lawsuit. But for the thousand units team mel probably purchased (and after spending investors cash), I'd go for the initial investment.

if the reporters did their research they would know that mel did have an album completed, with the help of amazing producers like timberland and darkchild, missy elliot and ludacris- however 2 of the record big wigs fell out, which meant the album could bot be released untill the red tape was picked up!!!........since then she has recorded over 20 new songs for a new album, which would be quicker than waiting for the legal matters of the first to be resolved! GO MEL!!
