BANG! NEWS – An argument with Victoria Beckham pushed her towards depression, according to Mel C.
The 46-year-old pop star was threatened with being sacked from the Spice Girls after she was seen arguing with Victoria at the BRIT Awards in 1996 and Mel – who was read the riot act by the group’s manager – admitted the incident had a detrimental impact on her mental health.
Appearing on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs, the singer confessed, “I was so hurt and embarrassed. On the way out there was a little scuffle between myself and Victoria.
“We can’t say this on air but I asked her to go away. I was told if that behaviour ever happened again, then I would be out.”
Mel – whose real name is Melanie Chisholm – knew she could have easily thrown away her career.
As a result, Melanie became more self-disciplined than ever before.
