Mel B. Claims She Hooked Up With Geri Halliwell During Spice Girls Years

During a taping of Piers Morgan’s new ITV show Life Stories on Friday, Mel B, aka Scary Spice, confirmed longstanding rumors that she once had a sexual encounter with fellow Spice Girl, Geri Halliwell Horner.

The Daily Mail posted a full transcript of the interview, and when Morgan asked her point blank if anything happened with her bandmate, the singer tried to skirt the question. But after a little push, she couldn’t help but nod and smile. “She’s going to hate me for this because she’s all posh in her country house and her husband. But it’s a fact. It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it,” she divulged.

According to the Mail on Sunday, which posted a transcript of the interview, Piers, who is a columnist for the paper, had asked Mel B, “Did you or didn’t you with Geri Halliwell…did you sleep with her?”

“Yeah, we all slept in a bed together but not ‘like that’ all of us,” the 43-year-old singer replied.

“Did you sleep with Geri ‘like that’? Piers asked.

Mel B nodded and smiled, and said, “She’s going to hate me for this because she’s all posh in her country house and her husband. But it’s a fact. It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it.”

“It was just that once,” Mel B continued. “And hopefully when Geri gets asked that, which hopefully she will after this, she won’t deny it. Because it was just a fun thing.”

The alleged incident supposedly happened when the newly formed Spice Girls moved into a shared house in Maidenhead, Berks, in the mid ’90s. Halliwell would go on to leave the group in 1998, and return in 2007.

Though an inner-group hookup may be shocking, both women have been open about having same-sex relationships in the past. “‘You fall in love with whoever you fall in love with. I just don’t have a preference,” Mel B stated when Morgan asked about her sexuality. “I had a great experience with a woman for five years and that showed me that there are other options out there. My mum will tell you [that period] was one of the happiest times she has ever seen me.”

Ginger Spice has been married to Formula 1 racing team boss Christian Horner since 2015, and as The Sun reports has been trying to keep her previous promiscuity in the past.
