Melanie Chisholm was "Sporty Spice" in the Spice Girls, in case you were on the moon in the 90's. With that moniker brought depression and pressure to stay thin.
So she has now opened up about rumors of Bulimia, and rumors of being a lesbian:
"Being in the Spice Girls was amazing, but also very tough. I was young and impressionable, and I found it hard to read about myself. The tabloids were cruel about my appearance, and nothing can prepare you for that. You just have to fight your way through it.
"There were a lot of lies printed and questions about my sexuality."
All of this caused her to be both depressed and bulimic, sadly. But she has moved on and gotten better. She now has a daughter and has been with her man since 2002!
We're so happy to hear you're in such a better place, Mel. We hope everything is just splendid!
