Mel B just admitted that she'll be entering a rehab facility next month to deal with a myriad of issues in her life including PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and booze addiction.
She spoke with The Sun about the entire ordeal, where the America's Got Talent host said that "The past six months have been incredibly difficult for me."
“I’ve been working with a writer on my book, Brutally Honest, and it has been unbelievably traumatic reliving an emotionally abusive relationship and confronting so many massive issues in my life," she said in a statement. The relationship she is speaking on is with her tumultuous ex Stephan Belafonte, who Mel just won a restraining order against back in June.
Mel is making the move to enter a rehab facility after revealing that she's been diagnosed with PTSD and admitting to drinking heavily following a very rough time in her life. The relationship with Stephan played a big part in this, as she's accused him of several things in the past including abuse and infidelity.

She'll start treatment after the AGT finale. "I have also made the decision to go into a proper therapy programme in the next few weeks, but it has to be in the UK because I am very, very British and I know that will work best for me," she said.
"I am still struggling. But if I can shine a light on the issue of pain, PTSD and the things men and women do to mask it, I will do," Mel continued in the statement. "I am speaking about this because this is a huge issue for so many people."
Mel's reasonings for going include her children: Phoenix Chi Gulzar, 19, Angel Iris Murphy Brown, 11, and Madison Brown Belafonte, 6. "I am working on being a better version of myself for my kids, for my family and for all the people who have supported me in my life."
