"I had a girlfriend. So what?" - Mel B

Mon 1 Dec 2014 In: International News View at Wayback

Former Spice Girl Mel B has spoken about her four year relationship with a woman, saying "I had a girlfriend. So what?" The 39-year-old reality TV judge has told The Guardian she had a long-term relationship with Christa Parker, a mother-of-two she met at her daughter Phoenix's school in Los Angeles. "People call me lesbian, bisexual or heterosexual, but I know who's in my bed," she says. "I have a huge libido and a great sex life." She adds: "I had a girlfriend. So what? I did have a four-year relationship with a woman. But I've been very happily married for seven years to a penis. An amazing guy." Brown is married to director Stephen Belafonte, who she says is the love of her life. "But I've definitely not been shy or been one to hold back. If I wanted to try something, I did. I had a girlfriend. So what?" She says she and her husband are “very tight and solid” but she will be the first one to compliment a woman. "I do think women are gorgeous. Crazy but gorgeous."
