Mel, also known as Scary Spice, allegedly recalled the events through legal documents obtained by TMZ.

The former couple split in December before filing for divorce in January this year.

In the legal documents it is alleged that Stephen, 41, "placed both of his hands around her neck, began choking her and slammed her down onto the hardwood floors" at the start of their marriage in 2007.

In another claim Mel accused Stephen of "punching her with a closed fist in the face and splitting her lip".

The former X Factor judge claimed she tried to leave him many times but he "threatened me with violence and threatened to destroy my life in every possible way...destroy my career and take my kids from me".

"I’m really really distraught in my brain how this is going to affect our children.

"I think someone’s set me up to look like a bad guy.

"It’s accusation after accusation. But we’ll have our day in court."
