Scary Spice Mel B may have been overly enthusiastic about sharing her secret involving Geri Halliwell to the world, but it seems Geri isn’t as eager to tell their story.
In an interview with Piers Morgan on his show Life Stories, Mel B openly admitted that she and Geri hooked up one night during the Spice Girls’ heyday. “She’s going to hate me for this because she’s all posh in her country house and her husband,” she said. “But it’s a fact. It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it.”
Mel C, who was in the audience during the taping, claimed she “didn’t know anything” and that it was her first time hearing the story.
“It was just that once,” Mel B continued. “And hopefully when Geri gets asked that, which hopefully she will after this, she won’t deny it. Because it was just a fun thing.”

However, Geri didn’t share the same sentiment with Mel B. According to Geri’s rep, Geri was “disappointed” over Mel B talking about something that “is simply not true.” The rep also says that, ever since Mel B shared the story, it “has been very hurtful to [Geri’s] family.”
The interview was filmed just a few weeks before the Spice Girls, sans Victoria Beckham, are set to rehearse for their reunion tour. Despite the issue, said Geri’s rep, “Geri can’t wait to see the girls and all the fans on the tour, have an amazing time with everyone, and make some new memories.”
