Spice Girls sex scandal: Geri Halliwell furious after Mel B lesbian sex claim, asks her to 'keep her mouth shut'
The band's reunion, however, is still on and will be the band's first tour without Victoria Beckham slated to kick off at Dublin's Croke Park on May 24
Spice Girls fans don't need to get all riled up, because the band's upcoming reunion is still on, despite all the bad blood between Mel B and fellow bandmate Geri Horner. Horner is apparently mad at Mel over claims that the duo had sex.
And now, Ginger Spice has said that Mel "needs to keep her mouth shut", while also admitting that she will not back out of the tour for the sake of fans. According to The Sun, Scary Spice did message bandmates Geri, Melanie C, along with Emma Bunton, after telling TV host Piers Morgan that the pair got intimate during the group’s early days.
However, in her messages, the Spice Girls member forgot to apologize for her actions. Mel was pictured landing back in Los Angeles late on Saturday with daughter Phoenix, after her interview with Piers that took place in London on Friday.
A source close to Geri said: "This is typical Mel, running her mouth, but Geri is more than a bit miffed. Mel messaged the girls to tell them about what she had said after filming the interview, but she didn’t even say sorry. She needs to do some serious groveling to make up with Geri."
"This isn’t something she’s going to forget easily. Mel insists it’s true, but Geri says she’s blown it out of all proportion and needs to keep her mouth shut. It’s not ideal as rehearsals for the tour begin within weeks and they are going to be spending a lot of time together."
The source concluded, "It’s not going to derail the reunion and they’re all still excited about going back out on the road together, but it’s done damage to their personal friendship." According to reports, the group will begin rehearsals next month for their 13-date tour.
This will be the band's first tour without Victoria Beckham, and it is slated to kick off at Dublin’s Croke Park on May 24. During the interview for Piers Morgan’s 'Life Stories', which will be broadcast this summer on ITV, Mel said: "She is going to hate me for this because she is all posh in a country house but it wasn’t a 'thing'. It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it."
Discussing how Geri and her husband, Formula 1 mogul Christian Horner, might react to the revelation, Mel told her host: "She’s going to kill me and so’s her husband." The bisexual former 'America's Got Talent' judge refused to answer further questions about her sexual escapade with Ginger Spice, including whether or not it was "good", but said it was a "fun thing".
