Mel B takes a swipe at Victoria Beckham with insulting Halloween costume
Spice Girl Melanie Brown made her feelings more than clear towards her former band mate Victoria Beckham last night at a celeb Halloween party.
Mel’s anger towards Victoria and her refusal to take part in the upcoming Spice Girl reunion has been simmering for a while and she showed last night that the gloves are off.
Victoria Beckham gets into the Halloween spirit
Getting into the spooky mood after their holiday in Australia to attend the Invictus Games, the Beckham’s returned to London to mark Halloween but did so in a different manner to her ex pal Mel B who was celebrating in New York.
Victoria got into the spirit of the celebration by posing in a mask. The mum-of-four shared a photo of herself wearing a killer bunny mask, complete with a menacing smile and blood-smeared fur.
She wished her followers a ‘Happy Halloween. Fans were quick to comment that she’d turned into Scary Spice for the evening. One even joked that it’s the biggest smile they’ve seen Victoria give!
The Halloween celebrations continued at the Beckham household, as the fashion designer and former Spice Girl took part in pumpkin carving with Romeo and Cruz. She shared her own efforts before posting photos of Romeo’s and Cruz’s pumpkins. She captioned the shots with “Getting ready,” and “Never too old to carve pumpkins.”
Mel B tells Victoria to F*** off and Victoria threatens to sue
The feuding Spice Girls came to blows last month over Victoria’s refusal to take part in the upcoming Spice Girls reunion tour. It is the most hostile bust-up the 90’s girl band has known since Geri rocked the group by quitting in 1998. Mel B allegedly told Posh to ‘F*** off, you b***h!”
Scary was further infuriated by Victoria after she allegedly threatened to sue if the remaining members were to cash in without her next summer.
The other members of the group: Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm, Geri Horner and Melanie Brown have been working together in London for some time on perfecting their reunion tour.
Mel B previously hinted that one of the Spice Girls was proving ‘difficult’ to pin down for a reunion, but insisted her “sisters” will do everything to rope her in.
It is said that the UK tour could make them £8 million each which is far less than what they all could have earned as a five-piece.
The other Spice Girls are furious with Victoria
An insider said: “The girls are furious with Victoria for initially agreeing to reunite, then pulling out. At one stage she even threatened to go legal if the girls cashed in on the brand minus her.”
“They then took offence to her re-creating her Spice Girls look in a recent Vogue shoot saying that she was being a hypocrite.
Mel talks about the ‘sisterhood’ being let down
Known for speaking her mind, outspoken Mel admits that she says what she thinks. Back in the late 90’s, she was vocal in her sharing her anger at Geri’s shock decision to leave the group without discussing it with the other members first.
Speaking about the incident last month on Loose Women, 43 year old Mel shared:
“What bothered me was not the fact she left, although that did upset me of course, but the fact she didn’t come to me. I’m one of her best friends, I mean all of them we have strong friendships,”
“I felt angry and then sad. We’re all about our sisterhood and Girl Power so to think that one of our sisters got that bad to remove herself was really daunting.”
The girls were apparently “desperate” for the tour to include all five of them after the success of their 2007 comeback.
Don’t mess with Scary Spice on Halloween
Scary Spice – Melanie Brown took a major swipe at her former band member Posh after dressing up as her at Heidi Klum’s annual Halloween do. Celebs were out in full fright at the bash and stars included Lupita Nyong’o and Bella Hadid. Klum herself won the show with her transformation into Princess Fiona from Shrek.
The America’s Got Talent judge made a dig at Beckham’s apparent reluctance to sign up for a Spice Girl’s reunion tour in celebration of the group’s 20th anniversary.
43 year old Mel donned Posh Spice’s signature black look and wore a mask of her face while brandishing a sign reading: “NO I AM NOT GOING ON TOUR.”
She was accompanied by her friend Gary who was impersonating David Beckham, complete with an LA Galaxy football shirt.
Fans react on twitter
Some fans were fuming at Mel’s swipe at Victoria with one commenting: “Scary spice went as posh spice omg my life.”
Another branded her “disgusting” and claimed “she doesn’t have the right to be against her publicly”.
A third posted: “Nooooooooo!!!! Why!!??????”
However, her controversial Halloween outfit did gain the support of some. One fan replied to Mel’s Halloween post on twitter: ‘Ha! Sad we only see a Posh face mask these days. Thanks to legend Mel B for getting ready to remind us why she’s a superstar.
Victoria admits that she can’t sing
In recent years, 44 year old Victoria has openly shared that her microphone was turned off by the producers during the Spice Girls performances.
She has admitted she was often silenced to lip syncing so fans could only hear Emma Bunton, Mel B, Mel C and Geri Halliwell singing.
“They used to turn it off and just let the others sing. I got the last laugh — and now my mic is well and truly on, finally.”
Her attempts at a solo career never really took off.
Victoria is keen to shed her former image
It has been speculated that Victoria, formerly known as ‘Posh,’ has turned down A Spice Girl reunion as it is not compatible with her image as a fashion designer.
Previously known for her love of outrageous fashion, she has now toned down her style to a look more in keeping with the understated style of other fashion designers.
The mum of four admits to having ‘no formal training’ as a fashion designer. Instead, her method is to ‘drape material’ over herself and then direct a team of stylists to help achieve her collection.
