Spice Girls Attending Royal Wedding Not Performing, Though ... For Now

5/11/2018 5:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mel B might've played too fast and loose with the truth by implying the Spice Girls were performing at the Royal wedding, 'cause they're not -- at least for now ... TMZ has learned. 

Sources tell us that while Scary Spice and co. will, in fact, be attending Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's nuptials later this month ... there are no current plans to have the group perform at any point in the festivities. M&H haven't asked ... neither has Kensington Palace.

What's more ... we're told the Spice Girls haven't rehearsed anything for the wedding either, as of now, and with about a week or so before the Royal couple ties the knot ... it ain't likely they'll get an act together in time for a showstopper. The last time the Spice Girls performed together was in 2012 at the London Olympics ... so they're probably a little rusty.

As we reported ... Mel B led on that the Girls were hitting the stage together for the wedding while chatting with the ladies of "The Real." She didn't come out and say it outright, but she didn't deny it either ... which led everyone, including us, to believe just that.

Unfortunately, we're told she was getting ahead of herself ... 'cause there's simply no truth to that as of right now. Keep in mind ... the wedding is on May 19. 

Naughty but nice!!! #friendshipneverends #spicegirls #summernights #aperolspritz

All that said ... it wouldn't be implausible to see the Spice Girls possibly do something to entertain the crowd -- they're all gonna be under one roof for crying out loud, which doesn't happen all that often. Mel, Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton recently got together ... sans Victoria or Mel C, though.

Hopefully, they can give us a bow ... a note ... ANYTHING to tease this upcoming tour of theirs. 

Mel B Daughter's Therapy Was My Idea!! Belafonte's Full of Crap

4/20/2018 3:39 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mel B says Stephen Belafonte is trying to pull a fast one by making it look like he decided to get their daughter into therapy, and she adds his brainwashing allegations are desperate.

According to new legal docs ... Mel B says she reached out to Stephen in late 2017 to get counseling for their 6-year-old daughter, Madison. Instead of agreeing and helping out, Mel claims Stephen waited a few months to file docs in which he accuses her of brainwashing Madison.

In her docs, Mel says therapy for their daughter was her idea all along -- so, she's not opposed to it. In fact, she even has suggestions for possible doctors for Madison to see.

As for Belafonte's brainwashing allegations -- Mel B says they're all nonsense ... and he has absolutely no evidence to support his claims Madison is acting differently toward him. 

Mel adds, they already have a custody plan in place and they should stick to it, because she's done nothing to alienate their daughter from him.

Mel B Scary Hot!!!

4/12/2018 8:41 AM PDT

Mel B's grabbing life by the horns pigtails ... and clearly living her best life right now.

Mel's out on vacay in Desert Hot Springs, CA where she was hanging poolside in a pink print bikini and pink heels. She's there with her hairdresser bestie, Gary Madatyan, who had a clear view of her fit bod.

Smart move to get some R&R before the heavy lifting starts. Remember, Mel claims the Spice Girls will perform at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding on May 19 -- and, of course, they have a reunion tour kicking off later this year.

Bikini chillin' by the pool ... a much better look than feuding with your ex.

Mel B In Case You Forget ... I'm a Spice Girl!!!

3/20/2018 4:01 PM PDT

Mel B's so obsessed with being in the Spice Girls, you might say it's scary ... and if you didn't say it, her wardrobe spells it out. 

Mel was out in WeHo Tuesday wearing a pink coat emblazoned with her Spice name ... Scary. There were a few clues for anyone walking behind Mel, too -- the back of the jacket's bedazzled with the famous line "ZIGA ZIG HA" from their huge hit, "Wannabe." 

Mel was hanging with her hairdresser pal, Gary Madatyan, near BOA Steakhouse when she was photographed in the throwback uni, which is about to be all the rage again. 

We broke the story ... Mel and the rest of the Spice Girls signed with their old manager, Simon Fuller, and have agreed to reunite for a tour later this year.  

Spice Girls Contracts Signed for Reunion Tour

2/15/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Spice Girls have signed contracts for their reunion tour ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the group tell us, Mel B signed on the dotted line last Friday and we're told the other members signed as well.

TMZ broke the story ... the girls have agreed to reunite for a series of concerts in the UK and the U.S.  After our story posted, Victoria Beckham told Vogue there would be no reunion tour, but we know Mel B has signed the deal, as have others, and it spells out the specifics, including the number and location of concerts and compensation.

We're told there will be a limited number of concerts in the 2 countries and the group is gearing up to make a ton of cash on merchandise too. 

Spice Girls Reunion Screw Wannabe Merch ... We'll Be There w/ OG Stuff 'Til 2023!

2/7/2018 11:37 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Spice Girls have a major advantage leading up to their forthcoming reunion tour -- they can still hawk A LOT of gear bearing their name ... some of it old, but still new.

We did some digging, and it turns out the Spice Girls have a live trademark and exclusive rights to use their band name on a bunch of tour merch.

We broke the story ... the Spice Girls are planning to kick off a reunion tour by late summer that'll span across the UK and then the U.S. All 5 girls are involved.

Some stuff they can peddle includes your run-of-the-mill tour must-haves -- T-shirts, jackets, belts, books, binders and lots of other items like that. But get this ... the trademark is so old, they can also sell things like "cassette recorders," "compact disc players," and "video game joysticks."

They filed for this specific trademark back in 1997, and recently filed to renew it through 2023. Still ... they may want to add some of the latest technology.

These kids are WAY past the analog years ... and they have no problem telling you what they want ... what they really, REALLY want.

Mel B I Have a Spice Girls Reunion Secret That U Really, Really Want

2/6/2018 4:41 PM PST

Mel B is so damn good at the promotion game, she's giving Spice Girls fans some serious hope for a reunion tour by dropping a few well-chosen words.

Mel B was walking out of Fred Segal Tuesday in WeHo when we asked, point-blank, if the group's hitting the road again. Of course, she's fully aware of the rumblings that started when all 5 Spices posed for a photo last week in the U.K.

Watch Mel's sly reply when we attempted to grill her -- arguably she played it perfectly.

We also asked her about the tension at her "America's Got Talent" gig ... and Queen Latifah possibly replacing her. The woman of few words definitely had one for Queen. 

Spice Girls We're All Here!!! Yes, Even Victoria

2/2/2018 8:56 AM PST

12:44 PM PT -- The group just released a statement, saying, "We have enjoyed a wonderful afternoon catching-up and reminiscing about the amazing times we have spent together. We are always overwhelmed at how much interest there is across the whole world for The Spice Girls.

The time now feels right to explore some incredible new opportunities together. We all agree that there are many exciting possibilities that will once again embrace the original essence of The Spice Girls, while reinforcing our message of female empowerment for future generations."

The Spice Girls are 5 again ... Baby, Sporty, Scary, Ginger AND Posh are all officially under the same roof.

Victoria Beckham posted a pic of the girl group and she certainly teased some type of possible reunion with the caption, "Love my girls!!! So many kisses!!! X Exciting x."

We got pics of Mel B, Mel C and Emma arriving at Geri Halliwell's London pad early Friday, but there were no signs of Posh ... which dampened hopes for a full reunion.

Turns out she must've ducked in the back, keeping hope alive!

Geri's reportedly down for a reunion as long as it doesn't require a full tour ... ditto for Victoria.

Girl Power!

The Spice Girls Making Headlines with Reunion ... But, Where's Victoria?!

2/2/2018 7:20 AM PST

The Spice Girls wanna talk reunion ... so a bunch of them got together, sans Victoria Beckham.

Mel B pulled up fashionably late to Ginger Spice's London crib Thursday with Mel C not far behind. 

Ginger, who is hosting the affair, is reportedly down with the reunion so long as the group doesn't sign up for a full-on tour, citing family reasons. Ditto for Victoria, who wasn't seen at the reunion. TMZ broke the story ... Victoria's NOT down for a reunion.

It seems like the group's incredibly serious about getting the band together. Even the group's original manager, Simon Fuller, made the meeting.

Victoria Beckham on Spice Girls I Won't Be There for a 'Reunion' ... Don't Wannabe Either!

11/14/2017 9:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Spice Girls are inching closer to a full-on comeback, but it's gonna be tough -- 'cause Victoria Beckham doesn't wanna be part of it ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Victoria tell us she will not be involved in any possible Spice Girls reunion, if one happens. According to a U.K. report, they're said to be releasing a new album in 2018, and making an appearance on a TV special.

We're told Victoria and her camp have not been part of the talks, and no one's reached out to them to join negotiations. It's no skin off Posh's back, because our sources say she's busy working on her fashion line.

So, it'll be Spice minus 1 if they put the group back together. No matter what you really, really want. 

KFC I'm #1 Herb, Show Me Them Spice Girls ... Says L.A. City Councilman

10/24/2017 6:59 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

One of the KFC's now-famous 11 "Herbs and Spices"  is an L.A. City Councilman, who's totally down for an original recipe hookup with the Spice Girls and the other herbs. Make it happen, Colonel!

We got L.A. City Council President Herb J. Wesson Jr. -- 1 of the 6 Herbs KFC follows on Twitter, along with all 5 Spice Girls -- and he says there's nothing fowl about his newfound fame. 

He also made it clear ... he's not afraid to sell out for chicken, as evidenced by his suddenly booming social media.

Herb's not sure which ingredient he is in the secret recipe, but he's already declared himself the #1 Herb -- apologies to music legend, Herb Alpert -- and he has big plans, if Colonel Sanders cares to listen.

We can see it now -- ya can't fry KFC without Wesson!!

Or something like that.

Victoria Beckham Smile? On My Birthday? Don't Be Silly!

4/18/2017 10:10 AM PDT
Exclusive 360 Video

Victoria Beckham has never been big on smiling for anything, not even when a pack of strangers sing 'Happy Birthday' for her.

Posh Spice turned 43 on Monday and got a serenade from photogs when she arrived at LAX. It was a sweet gesture, and Vicky seemed like she was gonna be into it. You gotta see her primp for the big moment.

But once the singing started, well ... let's just say she doesn't seem impressed.

We think she'd say her daughter, Harper, did it better.

🙏🏻 I love u @davidbeckham @brooklynbeckham @romeobeckham @cruzbeckham 💕💕💕💕

Victoria Beckham I'm Done With Spice Girls ... Forever

1/13/2016 11:39 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Victoria Beckham will never ever ever be getting back together with the Spice Girls ... despite what you may be reading. 

Several media outlets reported the entire group will be reuniting in 2016 for a 20th anniversary ... but Posh's rep tells us she will categorically not be appearing with the Spice Girls, now or in the future. 

Her rep says Beckham "has been very respectful about the fabulous time they had together in the past, however her focus is now very much her family and fashion business."

No word on what that means for the rest of the girls ... Mel B aka Scary Spice has said she wouldn't perform unless everyone's in, so it seems this is a deal breaker.

Sad day for the Spice World.
