Spice Girls Emma Bunton finally spoke out about Mel B’s bombshell claim that she slept with bandmate Geri Halliwell. Mel B spilled the alleged secret lesbian fling to Piers Morgan in a clip that aired on March 25. Scroll below to find out Emma’s reaction!
Emma, 43, went on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show on April 5 and he grilled her about the alleged fling. Chris Evans told Emma, “I think Mel B dropped a gossip bomb in a sort of vintage Hollywood PR style.”
He continued, “Don’t tell me this is not good for business!” The Spice Girls are set to embark on a U.K. tour beginning in May 2019.
Emma laughed as she responded, “Out of anyone I've spoken to, you know the girls more than me! Mel B sometimes I think oh my goodness. It's the first I've heard of it.”
The Spice Girl admitted she’s not too sure if Mel B, 43, was trying to be funny or the bandmate fling with Geri, 46, actually happened. “That’s how I feel, it's a laugh and also with Mel you take everything with a pinch of salt. She’s great fun,” she said.
