Mel B, is NOT happy that Geri Halliwell has publicly denied their sexual relationship in the Spice Girls heyday.
Mel first made the confession about their sexual history on Piers Morgan‘s Life Stories in Britain. Piers asked Mel,
“You were coming here to be brutally honest – did or didn’t you sleep with Geri Halliwell? Did you sleep with her?“
Mel first tried to dodge the question, saying,
“Yeah. We all slept in a bed together, but not like that, all of us.“
But Piers continued,
“Did you sleep with Geri like that?“
Mel smiled and nodded. Piers said,
Mel then said of Geri who is married to Formula 1 team boss Christian Horner,
“She’s going to hate me for this because she’s all posh in her country house with her husband.“
The camera then cut to Mel C in the audience looking shocked, with her mouth wide open.
Piers confirmed that Mel B. quickly made a phone call to Geri after filming wrapped to explain the confession. Piers said,
“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.‘”
Geri then released a statement insisting that what Mel said was
“Simply not true.“
Geri also reassured fans she couldn’t wait to tour with Mel, Emma Bunton and Mel C later this year but supposedly a worldwide tour is no longer happening. The Mail On Sunday said that plans were being drawn up to stage a series of lucrative concerts before Mel B let the lesbian fling bombshell drop.
Gigs were lining up in America, Australia and the Far East but sources say,
“They agreed that they had to do the British dates because they are under contract and they don’t want to let their fans down, but there won’t be any more. There had been plans to keep it going but no more.“
According to Grazia, for the sake of their die-hard fans, Mel C and Emma Bunton are trying to smooth things over between their bandmates but are “prepared for more epic rows” during their upcoming Spice Girls tour rehearsals.
A source told The Mirror,
“Mel is totally perplexed by Geri’s denials… [she] feels Geri is making her out to be a liar. She said, ‘It’s almost as if she is trying to erase our history.‘”
Mel B still says,
“It wasn’t like a big deal, we’ve known each other 20 plus years, it was just one thing that happened one night. I didn’t go into detail about it, at all… It was a little thing and we giggled about it the next day, that’s that. It’s not a big deal, especially not in this day and age.“
Apparently to Geri, it is.
