Geri Halliwell Calls Spice Girl Mel B's Claim They Had Sex 'Hurtful'

Geri Halliwell and Melanie Brown

Halliwell claims Mel B lied about a hookup they allegedly had at the height of Spice Girls' fame in the '90s. 

Social media exploded when Mel B (Scary Spice) revealed she and her former fellow Spice Girl Geri (Ginger Spice) Halliwell Horner had sex in the 1990s. But Halliwell says that Mel B's assertion is a lie and called the statements "hurtful," according to People.

"It had been very disappointing to read about all these rumors again, especially on Mother's Day of all days," Halliwell said via a representative.

It "is simply not true and has been very hurtful to her family," the representative wrote in a statement.

Halliwell was responding to an assertion Mel B made on Piers Morgan's upcoming Life Stories that was shown in a clip on Good Morning Britain last week.

In the clip, with Morgan's prodding, Mel B nodded affirmatively that she hooked up with Halliwell.

"It was just that once," she said. "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."

"[Geri's] going to hate me for this because she's so posh in her country house with her husband," she said. "But it's a fact. It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it."

After rumors that Ginger and Scary Spice had sex at the height of the Spice Girls' popularity in the '90s blew up on social media, Mel B appeared on 2Day FM Breakfast With Grant, Ed & Ash, where she hinted at their hookup again.

"We've known each other for 20-plus years. It was just one of those things that happened one night," Mel B said.

Despite being disappointed at Mel B's assertion, Halliwell expressed that she is looking forward to the upcoming Spice Girls' U.K. reunion tour.

"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," according to her rep.
