The former Spice Girl Mel B has confirmed that she once had a relationship with her female friend Christa Parker.
During an interview with US radio presenter Howard Stern, she was asked whether she was ever in love with Parker. Her reply was: “I would say so.”
Rumours of the relationship started in 2007, when tabloid newspapers alleged that the singer was having a "lesbian affair" with Parker after meeting at the school where both their children were pupils. It was also alleged that the pair had threesomes with sex-toy vendor Elizabeth Rodriguez.
At the time, Mel B said: “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.”
In an interview with the Sunday Mirror in 2007 Parker and Rodriguez talked about their relationship with Mel B, and said they were worried about the mental state of the singer after she married Stephen Belafonte (which they said was to get back at Eddie Murphy, who ended the relationship with the singer after five months).
In the radio interview, Stern also asked Mel B whether she was ever attracted to any of her fellow Spice Girls, to which she replied: “Always, they’re my homies."
“I’ve kissed all of them, yes. I got my tongue pierced and I wanted to try it out so I kissed all of them,” she said.
Mel B and Howard Stern were judges on the recent 'America's Got Talent' show, along with Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel.
Yesterday, the singer released her new music video for dance track 'For Once In My Life'. The video features the singer kissing an identical other version of herself (see below).
