Spice Girls members Mel B, Geri Horner and Emma Bunton are reportedly red-faced after a private chat between them was exposed in court documents. The trio allegedly had a conversation about a reunion gig where Mel B is said to have told her bandmates that "charity doesn't pay the bills".

These leaked messages, part of a defamation case in the US, have reportedly left the singers fuming. Allegedly, there are several emails discussing Victoria's behaviour at the Viva Forever! West End musical premiere in 2012, reports the Mirror.

Victoria, the fashion designer, arrived 15 minutes late due to traffic, causing a delay to the start of the show. She sat two rows behind the rest of the group with her husband David and their children when she arrived.

Despite this, they all came together last month to celebrate Victoria Beckham's 50th birthday, showing their close-knit friendship. A source told The Sun: "This is highly embarrassing for the girls as it doesn't exactly chime with their core messages.

"But obviously it was a fair few years ago now and they've all kissed and made up since then. Just look at how happy they were together celebrating Victoria's 50th birthday back in April, belting out their greatest hits together after a few drinks."

They insisted the "hatchet is well and truly buried." The excitement was palpable weeks after the Spice Girls' sensational reunion where they performed together for the first time in ages. Geri, Emma, Mel C, Victoria, and Mel B stood shoulder to shoulder, looking as chic as ever, as they sang their hearts out to the 1997 classic 'Stop' in front of an ecstatic crowd.

In the thick of it all was David Beckham, who couldn't hide his joy as he captured the moment on video, with the ladies nailing the song's legendary choreography. David shared the nostalgic video adorned with eight heart emojis, captioning: "I mean come on x @victoriabeckham @melaniecmusic @officialmelb @emmaleebunton @gerihalliwellhorner."

The iconic group burst onto the scene in 1994, quickly ascending to global fame before Geri Horner's (then Halliwell) departure in 1998 left fans heartbroken, as she stepped away from the group mid-Spiceworld Tour.

While the remaining four members carried on as a group, they all also embarked on solo careers and announced an indefinite break in 2000. The Spice Girls made a comeback in 2007 for a global tour that concluded in 2008.

They took another break until the 2012 Olympics, where they performed a stunning medley of Spice Up Your Life and Wannabe. Fast forward to 2019, Mel B, Mel C, Emma and Geri reunited without Victoria for the sold-out Spice World 2019 Tour.

The Mirror has reached out to representatives for Victoria, Mel B, Geri and Emma, as well as the Spice Girls.
