Geri Halliwell, who many have dubbed as the leader of the Spice Girls, has finally responded to Mel B‘s shocking allegation that the pair banged back in the band’s heyday.

Ginger Spice issued an official statement to Daily Mail where she vehemently denied the claims and said that she’s “hurt” by her band-mate’s story.

“It has been very disappointing to read about all these rumours again, especially on Mother’s Day of all days. 

“Geri loves the Spice Girls: Emma, Melanie, Melanie and Victoria. She would like [the fans] to know that what has been reported recently is simply not true and has been very hurtful to her family. 

“Moving forward, Geri can’t wait to see the girls and all the fans on the tour, have an amazing time with everyone, and make some new memories.”

Mel B spilled the ~alleged~ tea on Piers Morgan’s upcoming TV show Life Stories.

“She’s going to hate me for this because she’s all posh in her country house and her husband. But it’s a fact,” Brown said.

“It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it,” she added. “It just happens one time, you talk about it, and it doesn’t really happen again.”

After admitting she once kissed other members of the gang just so they could road-test her tongue piercing, Brown said “hopefully when Geri gets asked that, which hopefully she will after this, she won’t deny it.

“Because it was just a fun thing.”

Welp, the reunion tour won’t be awkward at all then, will it?
