Former Spice Girls singer Mel B has revealed how she once felt the need to slap multi millionaire music mogul Simon Cowell and it appears that he deserved it. Simon was pushing his lucky with the feisty star and when he eventually over stepped the mark, Mel attacked.
Mel and Simon were enjoying an evening out together and went to a restaurant to have a meal together when the wind ups began. Mel was pregnant at the time and she recalls how Cowell decided to continually order food for her so that it looked like she was eating way too much.
Mel B is known to be a bit of a fierce character at the best of times, hence the Scary Spice name, so the fact that she was pregnant and hormonal would surely heighten this. However, this did not deter Simon, who eventually called her fat and received a slap for his rudeness.
Mel explained, “I kept saying to him, ‘Excuse me, I’m pregnant – do not be like that with me’ and then at the end of the meal he called me fat. So I just slapped him.” Mel B and Simon Cowell have been friends for many years and Mel appeared as a guest judge on The X Factor earlier this year.
