Mel B’s got quite the support system! The 41-year-old America’s Got Talent judge has been going through a tough time -- first with the passing of her father earlier this month followed shortly by the announcement of her divorce from husband Stephen Belafonte after nearly 10 years of marriage.
But Mel’s AGT family has her back as they tape the show, which premieres on May 30.

“We are all there for you, you know, our hearts go out to her,” Howie Mandel told ET’s Denny Directo on Monday. “I knew about it before it got announced and some of the things that were happening in her life -- she lost her father, her marriage is over. But, you know, she is so strong as a mother and as a professional, and girl power wasn't just a brand, she lives and eats and breathes it.”
Judge Heidi Klum mirrored Mandel’s sentiment, and added that the busy schedule has been a blessing to the former Spice Girl.
“I think it was good for her that we are so busy and that we are here all day, and you see fun acts that make you laugh, so I think that was helpful instead of being on vacation because then you have time to think,” Klum told ET. “Sometimes in those moments it’s probably better not having time to think, and, you know, we are a family and we take care of each other we have- we all have each others’ backs, so I think that was good.”
Fellow Brit Simon Cowell noted that he greatly respects Mel’s professionalism in the face of adversity.

“She’s what we call a ‘trooper,’ you know, she’s holding up, [it’s] very difficult,” he told ET. “I've spoken to her, but I’m impressed with her.”
