Mel B looks frustrated as she 'fails to get into a storage unit in LA'... after claiming THAT nanny is extorting her over sex tapes kept in a lock up
Mel B was spotted arriving at storage unit in LA on Tuesday amid claims her former nanny is keeping sex tapes in a lock up.
The former Spice Girl, 41, obtained a court order to see the contents inside of a storage locker of Lorraine Gilles, TMZ reported.
Mel B claimed that Gilles was keeping between 12 to 15 boxes that includes sex tapes, photos of Gilles and Belafonte and Spice Girls memorabilia at the Public Storage facility.

What's in store? Mel B was spotted arriving at storage unit in LA on Tuesday amid claims her former nanny is keeping sex tapes in a lock up
According to reports, the singer pulled up to the lock up and entered a code, which failed to open the door.
Looking frustrated, the star kept checking her phone before she decided to drive away.
When Mel B first showed up with her lawyers, officials at the storage facility reportedly wouldn't let her in. Mel B then went to police for help entering the storage locker, but she left a second time empty handed after obtaining access.
Mel obtained a restraining order against the nanny, who her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte reportedly 'got pregnant during an affair'.
Police didn't find anything after they raided the Public Storage facility on Tuesday in Hollywood, TMZ reported.
A judge ordered Gilles to stay 100 yards away from Mel B and not to harass her or remove any property from the Public Storage locker, TMZ reported.

Court documents revealed that the singer accused Gilles and Belafonte of extortion.
The documents also state that in January 2015, Mel B fired the nanny, but her husband lost it calling Gilles his 'ride or die b****.'
Mel B said that Belafonte threatened to release their sex tapes unless she rehired the nanny with a raise.
He looked at Lorraine and said, 'Isn't that right, Lorraine,' and Lorraine responded, 'Yes,' according to court documents.
Mel B said that Gilles admitted to having the videos and said she'd give them to 41-year-old film producer, who allegedly got her pregnant during an affair. However, Gilles reportedly had an abortion.
Earlier on Tuesday it was revealed that Belafonte is 'fighting to maintain contact' with step-daughter Angel Iris, estranged wife Mel B's daughter with Hollywood star Eddie Murphy.
TMZ claimed Belafonte hopes to win visitation rights with the 10-year old, who was born in April 2007, two-months before he married the former Spice Girl Mel in Las Vegas.
Belafonte allegedly believes Murphy, 56, has played a limited role in Angel's life while he has acted as the child's stepfather, sharing parental responsibilities with Mel B throughout their decade long marriage.
Mel B said that Gilles (pictured above with Mel B) admitted to having the videos and said she'd give them to 41-year-old film producer, who allegedly got her pregnant during an affair. However, Gilles reportedly had an abortion.
It is understood that Belafonte enjoys a close relationship with Angel, although his estranged wife is 'strongly opposed' to the producer maintaining contact with her second child.
The former couple are already embroiled in a legal battle over joint custody of their only biological child, five-year old Madison as they are involved in a seemingly nasty divorce.
Extracts from a letter reportedly delivered to Mel B's lawyer on March 31 read: 'Stephen would like to schedule a meeting as soon as possible to discuss the resolution of temporary issues including his ability to see Madison and Angel, whom we would appreciate continuing to have contact with.'
Belafonte is based in Los Angeles, and California Law stipulates a stepparent can win 'reasonable visitation rights' if it is deemed to benefit the child in question.
Mel B is reportedly making a huge change to her petition to divorce estranged husband Stephen - asking that she get permanent sole custody of Madison, having previously asked for joint.
Belafonte's lawyer, Grace Jamra, told TMZ that he and his estranged wife had agreed to put the Spice Girls items in storage while their house was sold.
She claimed the couple's former nanny was not involved and had been sacked before the storage locker had been rented.
Jamra added: 'Unfortunately, it appears that Ms. Brown is creating further hysteria and seeking meaningless Court orders. It will be clear to everyone that there are no sex tapes in the storage.'
