Mel B breaks her silence and takes it out on Cowell
Mel B is really mad at Simon Cowell. After storming offstage following a spat with him during the live broadcast of U.S. talent show America’s Got Talent on Tuesday night (Aug 22), the former Spice Girls star has broken her silence and told Extra how she feels about what happened.
That’s the story: after a performance, in which one of the contestants suffered a technical malfunction , Simon Cowell said “I kind of imagine this would be like Mel B’s wedding night – a lot of anticipation, not much promise or delivery.”
A joke that clearly crossed a line, as Mel is currently going through a messy divorce with husband Stephen Belafonte. Mel looked outraged, before grabbing her cup of water and throwing it at her boss. She then walked off the stage.
The singer, who returned to her seat on the judging panel before the next performer took to the stage, has now addressed the drama, admitting Simon’s remarks threw her off on a night full of mixed emotions.
“The act before made me cry, because it’s all about dads and cancer and I just lost my dad and then he goes and says something stupid like that, so then I got angry,” Mel said, adding “How do you know what my wedding night was like all those years ago?”
