The former nanny of the star filed a surprising defamation lawsuit on April 21, claiming that Mel manipulated her into having threesomes with her and her husband Stephen Belafonte, 41, when she was just 18 and an exchange student in America.
In the documents, Stephen claims Angel has never seen Eddie since she was born and had no idea he wasn't her biological father.
After a fraught relationship, Brown fired Gilles, then rehired her when Belafonte "went ballistic" and things "fell back into the same old pattern", according to Brown's declaration.
Brown claims that Belafonte would blackmail her with their sex tapes, threatening to release them if she didn't "participate in sexual intercourse with him and random women". Somebody is really spicing up their life. "Brown terminated Lorraine before the items were placed in storage".
In her suit, Gilles says that Mel portrayed her as "a homewrecker, prostitute, and extortionist".
According to TMZ, Gilles' lawsuit centres on this declaration, as well as Mel B's allegation that she and Belafonte were stealing money from her and had control over sex tapes Mel and Belafonte made during their marriage.
The former Spice Girl was not present for the hearing.
Belafonte has denied all Brown's allegations. "Lorraine felt empowered by this and became manipulative and demanding of me, knowing that I could not fire her", Brown said. Pictured: Mel B at the Creative Arts Emmys in Los Angeles on September 10, 2016.
MEL B emerges smiling from a lunch with friends, apparently unfazed by claims she seduced the nanny at the centre of her divorce storm.
Her restraining order against her ex, however, will remain in place. She says that over time, she and Brown "developed a friendship and sexual relationship with one another that was separate and apart from Brown's relationship with her husband".
While Gilles is seeking unspecified damages for alleged libel, invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, Belafonte has filed new papers in a bid to gain access to the children.
Addressing the judge, Mel B's lawyer Larry Bakman said: "We are developing new evidence against Mr Belafonte each and every day with respect to. the use of assets for various illegal nefarious activities".
The film producer, accused of hurting Mel in a string of domestic incidents, has been banned from contacting them since Mel was granted a restraining order.
