Brown listed the date of separation as Dec. 28 in court papers, and requested joint legal and physical custody of her daughter with Belafonte, 5-year-old Madison. She also asked to terminate the court's ability to award spousal support.

The Spice Girls singer married Belafonte in 2007 after five months of dating. She had dedicated a loving post on Instagram to the Thank You for Smoking associate producer in February.

"My baby boo @stephenthinks11 we have been through everything that would normally tear couples apart and we have come out on the other side stronger,you loved me before I even new how to really love myself,you are my world honey," she wrote.

Brown is best known as a member of the Spice Girls, and will reunite with Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell on a 20th anniversary tour this year. She also serves as a judge on America's Got Talent.
