Geri Horner may have revealed her lesbian fling with Mel B years ago, during an interview with US shock jock Howard Stern.
Horner admitted that he’d ‘had lesbian sex’ with a ‘famous woman’ during their chat back in 2003, foreshadowing the claims from Mel that emerged over the weekend.
She told Stern: “I had lesbian sex once. I realised quickly I was not a lesbian. I don’t mind boobs but the other bit is not my cup of tea.
“I didn’t like the lesbian thing. It is part of experimenting. I was drunk at the time.
“I could never ever say who it was. I don’t think she was a lesbian either. I’m going to leave the rest to your imagination.”
Mel told Piers Morgan that she had slept with Geri while filming an episode of his show Life Stories for ITV, explaining that she had ‘great boobs’.
“She (Geri) is going to hate me for this because she is all posh in her country house and her husband, but it’s a fact,” she told Morgan.
“It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it. We were best friends. Have you ever done that? She is going to kill me and so is her husband.
“Hopefully when Geri gets asked that, which hopefully she will after this, she won’t deny it, because it was just a thing, a fun thing.”
But according to The Sun, the revelation has ‘damaged’ the pair’s relationship.
Horner hasn’t spoken publicly about the claims yet, but sources claim that the singer, now married to Formula One mogul Christian Horner, is angry.

“This is typical Mel, running her mouth, but Geri is more than a bit miffed,” said the source.
“Mel messaged the girls to tell them about what she had said after filming the interview, but she didn’t even say sorry. She needs to do some serious grovelling to make up with Geri. This isn’t something she’s going to forget easily.
“Mel insists it’s true, but Geri says she’s blown it out of all proportion and needs to keep her mouth shut.
“It’s not ideal as rehearsals for the tour begin within weeks and they are going to be spending a lot of time together.
“It’s not going to derail the reunion and they’re all still excited about going back out on the road together, but it’s done damage to their personal friendship.”
