Mel B

Melanie Brown, a.k.a. Mel B, made a name for herself as a member of the Spice Girls. The popstar assumed the nickname Scary Spice in the girl group. The Spice Girls were formed in 1994 and disbanded in 2001. The pop group reunited for a world tour from 2007-2008 and again in 2012 for the Closing Ceremonies at the Summer Olympic Games in London. Mel B has also released solo albums. Mel B was a finalist on Season Five of “Dancing With the Stars.” She was partnered with pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy in the ballroom. The entertainer is a judge on “America’s Got Talent” and has sat on the panel of “The X Factor” in the U.K. and Australia. Mel B lends her notoriety as an ambassador to brands and causes, has served as a host of beauty pageants and entertainment news programs, and appeared on numerous reality series. She starred on stage as Mimi in “Rent” on Broadway and appeared in “The Vagina Monologues” in London. Born on May 29, 1975 in Leeds, England, Mel B now calls Los Angeles home. She is mom to daughters Phoenix (with ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar [1998-2000]), Angel (with ex-boyfriend Eddie Murphy), Madison (with estranged husband Stephen Belafonte), and stepdaughter Giselle (Belafonte’s child from a previous relationship). Mel B filed for divorce in 2017 from husband Stephan Belafonte, alleging domestic violence and infidelity. The former couple married in 2007.
