Mel B made it clear that the reports about her eyes were false and she was definitely "Not OK" when she started going blind in one eye last week.


In a lengthy Instagram post, Spice Girl member Mel B thanked fans for their support after she "went blind in [her] right eye and [her] left eye went blurry" last week.

Denouncing the resulting press coverage, she wrote:

"Even though the stupid press said I’m ok and this has happened to me many times before, just to be clear I was NOT ok and this has NEVER EVER happened to me before."


The singer encouraged news outlets to "get their [sic] silly facts right big time." She further revealed that she experienced lots of pain and was very fearful at the time.

Her diagnosis from two hospitals was that she had severe Iritis in her right eye and Uveitis in her left. She's using eye drops to alleviate the inflammation.

She continued:

"Also I’m being so well looked after by Team Spice special thanks to our paramedics too!! I'm still dealing with it and will be for [sic] the next 3/4 months to fully get it under control but I’m no longer worried that my condition will get worse."


The Scary Spice asked fans, making sure to exclude Madonna, if they could make suggestions about where to find an eye patch. In addition to the suggestions, the 43-year-old received more words of support in the comments.

Meanwhile, Mel B will join Baby Spice (Emma Bunton) Sporty Spice (Mel C) and Ginger Spice (Geri Halliwell), for a reunion tour that begins in Dublin on Friday.


The tour will reportedly have 13 shows and will end at London's Wembley Stadium in mid-June. Posh Spice (Victoria Beckham) was unable to participate because of commitments elsewhere.

Like her old bandmates, Mel B has pretty much taken her career after Spice Girls in stride. She co-judged "America's Got Talent" at one point, and her 2017 split from Stephen Belafonte was well-publicized.

The singer also puts a lot of focus on her three children, who she had by three different men in as many decades. Still, Mel B is balancing her busy life as both a parent and a superstar.

The hot momma proved it last month when she showed off rock hard abs on her Instagram. Wearing a leopard print bikini and gold sunglasses, one might not believe the singer's age.
