Mel B: I had a four-year relationship with a woman
Former Spice Girl Mel B has revealed that she had a four-year relationship with a woman before meeting her husband.
The 39-year-old singer is currently appearing as a judge on the 11th series of The X Factor.
She told the Guardian: “I did have a four-year relationship with a woman. But I’ve been very happily married for seven years to a penis. Ha ha! An amazing guy.
“I’ve definitely not been shy or been one to hold back. If I wanted to try something, I did. I had a girlfriend. So what?”
She also denied rumours that she has been ‘intimate’ with women since marrying current husband Stephen Belafonte in 2007.
She said: “No, me and my husband are very tight and solid. But I will be the first one to compliment a woman, to say to my husband, ‘Oh my God, look at her legs’, or, ‘Doesn’t she look stunning?’
“I do think women are gorgeous. Crazy but gorgeous.”
When asked if she was a lesbian, she said: “I would not call it that. I was just one of those ladies . Now I’m happily married.
“People call me lesbian, bisexual or heterosexual, but I know who’s in my bed and that’s it … I have a huge libido and a great sex life.”
