How old is Mel B, what has she said about her mental health and when did she have Eddie Murphy’s daughter Angel?

MEL B is one fifth of the world's most famous girlbands - the Spice Girls.

And she's also known for her shock revelations including letting spill that she slept with her bandmate Geri Horner. Here's everything you need to know about the pop star...

What has Mel B said about her mental health?

The Spice Girl first opened up about her mental health in 2018 and continues to speak openly about her battle.

Mel — who accused her ex-husband Stephen Belafonte of abuse — revealed to The Sun On Sunday in August 2018 that she was going to rehab.

The America’s Got Talent star told the Sun on Sunday: “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.

“I am being very honest about drinking to numb my pain but that is just a way a lot of people mask what is really going on.

“Sometimes it is too hard to cope with all the emotions I feel. But the problem has never been about sex or alcohol — it is underneath all that.

"I am fully aware I have been at a crisis point. No one knows myself better than I do - but I am dealing with it.

“I have 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.

“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.

“I am speaking about this because this is a huge issue for so many people.”

She was also snapped next to a book about mental health issues in August 2018.

What did Mel B say about sleeping with Geri Horner?

In March 2019 reports claimed that Mel B and Geri Horner née Halliwell were in a YEAR-long relationship during their Spice Girls heyday.

The revelation came after Scary Spice shockingly admitted that the pair enjoyed a one-off romp.

But that is only part of their romantic story, according to a bombshell report.

A close pal told the Mail On Sunday: "It was in the very early days of the Spice Girls and their relationship lasted far longer than one night – it was at least 12 months.

"They deeply bought into the whole Girl Power phenomenon – they wanted to lead it.

"They felt what better way was there to do that than for girls to enjoy one another?
