Ex-Spice Girl Mel B reveals that she did a suicide attempt during the live shows of the British X Factor in 2014. The Sun reports. At that time she was replaced on television for the semi-finals, but one day later she appeared before the final. Her visible injuries were then attributed to a stomach ulcer.

Mel B, real name Melanie Brown, tells in her autobiography that she swallowed more than 200 pills before she fainted and was taken to the hospital. She herself partly blames her ex-husband Stephen Belafonte for causing her mental state. The couple divorced in 2017, after which Brown sought help for a post-traumatic stress disorder.

At this moment the singer is busy with the reunion of the Spice Girls.
