44-year-old Melanie Brown (Mel B) became famous as part of the Spice Girls.
After the crisis in the group in 1998, Melanie, like other soloists, began a solo career, releasing a joint single with Missy Elliott I Want You Back. However, her fame began to fade.
Taking a hiatus from the Spice Girls, Mel B took up her personal life. From 1998 to 2000, she was married to dancer Jimmy Gulzar, the ex-wife has a daughter, 20-year-old Phoenix. In 2007, Mel B gave birth to her second daughter Angel from actor Eddie Murphy - this happened after the breakup. From 2007 to 2017, she was married to producer Stephen Belafonte, seven-year-old Madison is growing up with them. Angel recalls life with Belafonte as hell - the girl claims that he beat her mother and forced her stepdaughters to eat on the floor.
In 2018, Mel B was again among the characters of scandalous news: she honestly admitted that she would be treated for alcoholism and sex addiction. At the end of the same year, a misfortune happened to her: the singer fell down the stairs, after which she needed an urgent operation.
Evidence that Melanie B was in a same-sex relationship also regularly surface in the press: the ex-nanny of little Madison named Lorraine Gilles claimed that she had a seven-year affair with Brown, who later accused her of abortion from her husband, and this spring Mel B herself admitted that she was in an intimate relationship with ex-Spice Girls colleague Jeri Halliwell. True, Mel did not ask Jeri herself whether she agreed to such revelations.
In 2019, Melanie Brown had a reason to pull herself together - along with other ex-spices (excluding Victoria Beckham, who left music), she participates in the nostalgic concert tour of the Spice Girls, which began in May, took a break for the summer and will again shake the UK in the fall.
