She previously told us: “Yo, I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want.” It turns out, perhaps what Mel B. wanted all along was a girlfriend.
Spice Girl Mel B. spoke recently to the Gay Star News and explained that she was previously in a five-year lesbian relationship with another woman.
She explained: “It wasn’t experimentation. I fell in love with a woman for five years. An experiment doesn’t last five years.”
Mel B., who has been married (to a man) since 2007, also commented on her children being LGBT. She said: “Between me and my husband we have four girls. What’s the ratio, one in five? So I’m hoping probably one of them will be. It’s not something I’d push, but it’s not something I’d push under the carpet… Whatever my kids want to be, I would celebrate. Whether they were gay, bisexual, transgender, I wouldn’t care. I would love and support them as my daughters.”
She also explained that when she was in her previous relationship with a woman, homophobia didn’t impact her. Mel explained that “if it did, I didn’t let it register… Because that would have been someone else’s problem, not my problem. I was happy.”
