Mel B Reveals Things Got 'Difficult' Between Her & Geri Halliwell After Admitted They Hooked Up

Spice GirlsMel B is revealing what happened in the aftermath of her reveal that she apparently hooked up with Geri Halliwell during their Spice Girls days.

If you don’t know, Mel B (aka Scary Spice) made the reveal about Geri (aka Ginger Spice) during an appearance on Piers Morgan‘s show.

“Things got really pumped up in the press and on social media, and yes, it was difficult between Geri and myself for a while,” Mel B told Mail on Sunday’s Event mag. “I texted her on the night I did the Piers Morgan show and explained what he’d said and how I’d answered and she was fine with it. The problem was it then got hyped up into a much bigger story, and it didn’t help that we were just about to begin rehearsals.”

Mel B continued, “It was awkward. We hadn’t been back in the situation of being together every single day, being on stage, rehearsing, getting ourselves back into Spice Girls mode, and then all the headlines about our relationship were thrown into the mix, which was pretty bad timing.”

She then added, “Geri is different. She’s married, she’s got kids, she’s not the same outrageous Ginger she used to be. That took a bit of getting used to for me. I’ve changed. I’ve been through ten years of a deeply abusive marriage. I’ve lived a lie for a decade and I’ve come out of it wanting to be so honest and so up front about everything.”

And finally, Mel B gave an update on how they’re doing today.

“Geri and I are in a good place now. On the last night at Wembley, Geri did something which, I think, meant more to me than any of the other girls. She said sorry for leaving the group back in 1998. We had been so close and then she just left and never really said why and never really said sorry until a few weeks ago,” Mel B explained. “She gave me a massive hug after she said it and both of us had tears in our eyes because we knew, deep down, it had needed to be said for a long time, something that had rankled between us.”

If you missed it, at the time, here’s how Geri Halliwell reacted when Mel B said they had hooked up.
