The plot thickens.
Now, a resurfaced interview from 2000 reveals that Mel B denied ever having sexual relations with Ginger Spice.
“Sexual partners, you mean? Nah. We were the best of mates for a long time. But we never had sex,” Mel says in the piece.
She then explained that she kissed her fellow bandmates only to test out her then-new tongue piercing.
“Well, the first thing I did after getting it pierced was snog the other Spice Girls,” she said. “I wanted to know what it felt like to have a snog from a woman with a pierced tongue. They said it felt all right.”
“They were all good,” she added. They all blended into one. I couldn’t say that anyone really stood out.”
When asked in the same interview about being a sexual person, Mel said, “Always have been. But, even when I feel very sexual, I’m not warped with sex everywhere I go. That only switches on when my man’s in the room.”
In March, Mel B said she and Horner, 46, had a one-time fling.
“It just happened, we just giggled at it and that was it,” she said. “We were best friends. It just happened.”
