Spice Girls reunion canceled as Victoria Beckham 'refuses to go on the road'
Spice Girls reunion idea comes to an end after Victoria Beckham refuses to perform on stage with the girls.
A Spice Girls reunion has been reportedly called off after Victoria Beckham refused to perform again. All the members of the band, Geri Horner, Mel B, Mel C and Emma Bunton were getting paid £150 million for the world tour but it looks like Victoria is not interested in the money. While all the fans were excited to see the girls take the stage once again, a source close to the band confirmed the news to The Sun that there will not be a reunion happening any time soon.
"They had a £150 million proposal in the offing — with a headline performance at Wembley — and even Mel C, who had previously been reluctant, was signed up," the source explained. "With things still up in the air, there were a few heated debates between the girls and Victoria. Simon was brought in to convince her to take the offer but now he’s failed they feel he’s used them to put his name back on the map.”
The report claims that the band members confronted Victoria and asked her to make a choice but her decision seemed to be unmoved. Another factor that affected the reunion was the question of money. Even though Mel B and Mel C were eager to cash in, Victoria did not seem to like the sound of that idea. Previously, in an interview with The Sun, Mel spilled the details about how Victoria is not too happy about getting back on the stage.
"Victoria has been quite vocal, it’s really not something she wants to do at this time," she said when asked about the reunion rumors that have been making rounds ever since the picture of all five of them surfaced on the internet. "I think it has to be all five, so it’s tricky," she further added. However, later, there were rumors that the band might just perform with the four members, leaving Victoria out. But it does not look like it will happen.
Rumors about the girls reuniting emerged when Victoria took to Instagram to share a picture of the girls. Everyone wondered if it was their way of announcing they were coming back for a show. Mel also spoke about the reunion stating that the girls just planned on meeting up and reliving their old days but had no plans of composing new music or setting off on a tour. "It’s very early stages, we’re not talking about new music or going out on the road together at this time," she said.
"It was just getting together to reignite all the things that we have had together and to work with Simon," she further added. Previously, there were rumors that the Spice Girls will be coming together to perform at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding but we know now that it was untrue.
