Mel B Secretly Married in Vegas!

TMZ has confirmed that Scary Spice Melanie Brown was secretly married to beau Stephen Belafonte last month!

As first reported by Perez Hilton, Scary and Stephen were married in a quickie Vegas ceremony on June 6. A clerk at the Clark County Marriage Bureau confirms there is a marriage certificate.

Brown was supposed to appear on tonight's "Larry King Live," but was a no-show because Mel and her baby are sick.

Mel's rep tells TMZ the couple are "very happy" and "very much in love. They have had a deep friendship for a number of years," adding, "that has developed into a loving relationship." As to the reason for secrecy, Mel's rep says there was none. "They just value their privacy."
