Moments after murdering his boyfriend in a Bronx walkup, Marcus Bellamy, a Broadway dancer who once performed in “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark,” left a chilling confession on Facebook.
“Forgive me,” the 32-year-old wrote Friday after beating and strangling his partner, Bernardo Almonte, to death.
“I did it for love. I did it because I love you. He told me love and hate are the same emotion.”
Bellamy is now facing murder and manslaughter charges for killing the 27-year-old freelance IT technician.
“I am God,” he wrote on his Facebook page, which is rife with Scripture verses, as well as pictures of himself shirtless and striking different dance moves. “I give life and can take it away.”
A law enforcement source said Bellamy strangled his lover as they brawled inside the W. 174th St. home in Morris Heights. Police said Almonte was found in the fifth-floor apartment face down, bleeding from a blow to the head.
Bellamy bit both of Almonte’s shoulders during the fatal fight, cops said, though it was not disclosed what they were arguing over.

Then — apparently after posting his confession — he left the apartment and divulged to a neighbor he had just killed his roommate. The neighbor called police, who arrested Bellamy at the scene.
Even before cops arrived, the alleged killer, standing on the sidewalk, raised his hands in the air and stared at the sky, a witness said.
“The way he was standing outside, he looked like he was praying,” said Lisa Turner, 51.
Bellamy identified Almonte as his partner, but refused to say anything more, police sources said.
He was taken to Lincoln Hospital Saturday evening after complaining of chest pains, a source said. His arraignment was pending.

Police said that Bellamy has been arrested four times stretching back to 2007, but not for anything violent.
Bellamy was a backup dancer in 2011’s “Spider-Man,” according to a resumé he posted on his Facebook page, and listings on playbill.com and broadway.com.
Before joining the accident-addled production by renowned director Julie Taymor, he was an ensemble member of Broadway’s “Tarzan” in 2006, his resume posted on Facebook says.
Bellamy has an IMDB page, which says he danced in NBC’s television series “Smash” and the movies “Across the Universe” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” also directed by Taymor.
He also created and starred in a YouTube video in 2010 titled “Hollywood.”
Bellamy admitted his feelings after murdering Bernardo Almonte on a Facebook post.
Bellamy grew up in Port Charlotte, Fla, he told Broadway.com in a 2012 interview.
He told the site that before attending the Juilliard School, he would hang out every day after school at his local dance studio.
“Dance was kind of all I had,” he said in the interview. “It was my after-school activity. It was my best friend. I had so much energy. I just wanted to get it out. It was the perfect solution.”
In a rambling video posted on YouTube in January, Bellamy said he planned to move to Hollywood and become a screen actor and comedian.
