With the onset of the Spice Girls reunion tour, we can expect a lot of press coverage in the upcoming months. One story which has definitely garnered a lot of interest is Mel B’s claim she slept with bandmate Geri at the height of the group’s fame.
During an interview for the Piers Morgan fronted Life Stories, the controversial host asks Mel B flatly if there were any truth to the rumours she had slept with Horner. She acts cagey for a while, laughing and asking fellow Spice Girl, Mel C, who is in the audience of the show, for assistance.
Mel C seems dumbfounded, saying she had no clue anything had happened. Morgan continues with his questioning, saying “Did you sleep with her?” Scary saying, “Yeah, we all slept in a bed together,” gesturing towards Sporty, “but not like that, all of us.” Morgan follows. “Did you sleep with Geri ‘like that’.”
A smile breaks across Mel B’s face before she nods, apparently confirming the rumour, before blurting “She’s going to hate me for this because she’s all posh in her country house with her husband. But it’s a fact. It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it.”
She follows ““It was just that once. Hopefully when Geri gets asked that, which hopefully she will after this, she won’t deny it. Because it was just a fun thing.” Alongside the tour, Mel was also publicising her new biography, Brutally Honest, all though the claims don’t appear in the book.
On Good Morning Britain, Morgan described the aftermath in the studio after the claims: ‘There was a lot of flurried activity after the recording. I said ‘Where’s Mel?’ They said ‘She’s just making a call to try and smooth things over’.”
While Brown has been very open in the past on relationships with other women, reports are Horner is upset by the revelation.
