The Sun: Mel B Races to Hospital after 'Going Blind' in Right Eye
Mel B was rushed to the hospital last Friday after losing the sight in her right eye, making the future of the upcoming and much-publicized Spice Girls tour uncertain.
“I can’t see anything — I am totally blind,” Mel B reportedly screamed as she arrived at the hospital wearing an eye patch. Sources also told the UK celebrity news site that Mel, otherwise known as Scary Spice, was in a lot of pain.

An insider added:
“Mel was in a really bad way. The other girls [Spice Girls’ bandmates] and their managers were really worried. Mel was frantic and screaming that she couldn’t see a thing. She went to the hospital in a chauffeur-driven car with an assistant, who was holding her hand. No one knew what brought it on but she had very swift, and very good treatment.”

The 43-year-old was transferred to Luton and Dunstable Hospital’s ophthalmology department where she received specialist treatment and left against doctor’s orders as soon as her sight was restored.
Mel reportedly left in a hurry because she wanted to join her Spice Girls bandmates -- Geri Horner, Emma Bunton, and Melanie Chisholm -- for rehearsals in preparation for their upcoming Spice World 2019 tour.
