If you wannabe in a girl group, you better watch your mouth!
Despite the Spice Girls always singing about how friendships never end, two members in the group definitely did NOT get along early on!
Melanie Chisholm, AKA Mel C, AKA Sporty Spice, is revealing that before the girls even released their first single Wannabe, she almost got kicked out of the group…
Because of a feud she had with Victoria Beckham!
It all started at the 1996 BRIT Awards. Sporty and Posh got D-RUNK and then got into a shouting match! Mel C explained:
"We all got a bit tipsy. By the end I was really pissed and told Victoria to f*ck off. It was so over-dramatised but it really upset her."
It upset Posh so much that she went to the band's management and told them to FIRE Melanie!
Wowee Zowee!!! Hell hath no fury like a Spice Girl scorned!
Top brass took action and called in
Drunky Spice Sporty Spice for a serious sit-down. Mel remembers:
"The next day I was called in by management and they threatened to kick me out of the group due to my behaviour. I can’t remember why we were even arguing now but I can remember telling her to ‘F’ off’.”
In the end, the two buried the hatchet and the fierce fivesome went on to become one of the biggest musical acts of the '90s.
But we're sure Mel C still thinks twice to this day before ever knocking a few back and giving Becks a piece of her mind!
