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

During their time in the Spice Girls, Mel B and Geri Halliwell sparked rumors that they were an item. It was so hush-hush that Scary Spice failed to mention it in her tell-all autobiography Brutally Honest; however, she may have spilled the tea during a recent taping of Piers Morgan's new show Life Stories.
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.
"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, however, 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.
"Since marrying Christian, Geri has worked hard to shake off her old playgirl image and sort of reinvent herself as this perfect Stepford Wife. Mel immediately rang Geri to try to repair the damage," a source told the outlet. And with a Spice Girls reunion coming up fast, Mel B doesn't want there to be any weird feelings. "The tour is just two months away they don't want anything jeopardizing it, but there were real fears this would upset Geri's husband and causes serious issues," the source explained.
