It’s since been reported by ET that Scary Spice had been staying at a friend’s house in London over the weekend when she fell down a narrow set of stairs. Her friend took her to hospital where she has since undergone surgery for her injuries.
Mel was due to arrive in L.A on Monday to take a court-ordered drug and alcohol test, however, she is currently still recovering in London.
ET is also reporting that when the singer arrived at the hospital in London they performed a drug and alcohol test but it came back with negative results.
Her representative has since said that this test was mandatory per the doctors request and was not related to her court-ordered test that was due to take place in L.A. They have also told ET that neither drugs nor alcohol played a role in Mel’s fall.
During her Instagram post on Monday, Mel thanked the doctors, other hospital staff and her fans for their support during this time.
“For now my right arm/hand is all stitched up and I’m trying to keep still to heal my broken ribs, ohhh the pain,” she wrote. “But I’m in super safe hands with the care of everyone here at the hospital!!!!! Thank you all for understanding, I love you all.”
In a second post to her Instagram account, Mel showed off a few of her visitors, the rest of the Spice Girls! In the post, Mel B is seen lying in a hospital bed while surrounded by Mel C, Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton.
“when your bestie show up to the hospital with hugs and laughter and A LOT of love, ahhhh I love my spice girls yipppeee #family #spicegirls,” Mel captioned the post.
This comes as Mel B has just released her memoir, Brutally Honest and as she prepares to go on tour with the Spice Girls next year.
