Mel B says she 'cut off' tattoo of ex-husband – but keeps it in a jar


The controversial star is set to reunite with her fellow for a much-awaited UK tour in 2019.

Geri Horner, Mel C, and Emma Bunton will all be hitting the stage to perform some of their biggest hits, although Victoria Beckham won’t be joining them.

And in typical Scary Spice style, Mel B dropped some bombshell news on fans this week.

During a guest appearance on Loose Women, the 43-year-old revealed she went to extreme lengths to have a tattoo of her ex-husband Stephen Belafonte removed following their split last year.

But while most people would opt to have the inking painstakingly lasered away, Mel decided to have it cut off.

Even scarier though, she decided not to dispose of the piece of skin, opting instead to keep it.

“[The surgeon] did a cut of just his name and I keep it in a jar, which I know is a bit strange, but it’s at the top of my wardrobe and I know it’s off my body”, she revealed.

Mel B admitted that she knows it sounds “horrific,” but she just didn’t want any reminder of her ex emblazoned on her body.

She explained: “This particular tattoo read: ‘Stephen until death do us part, you own my heart’.”

As the audience let out a gasp, the mum-of-three continued to explained the reasoning behind her bold decision to get the inking cut off.

“I just thought I can’t go through the pain of getting it lasered so I convinced a doctor to cut it off my bod”, she told the show.

Mel was married to producer Stephen from 2007, in what was to become a high-profile relationship that saw them hitting headlines on multiple occasions.

They divorced in 2017 following a bitter custody battle, a subject she speaks candidly about in her new book, Brutally Honest.

Mel also spoke openly about her reasoning behind having surgery on the show.

She divulged: “A lot of my surgery was to do with getting out of my relationship. ‘It was almost like a cleanse. I just wanted to feel fresh and new again and untouched by that person.”.
