Mel B reveals the Spice Girls are supporting Geri who is ‘leaning on Victoria Beckham’ as husband Christian Horner faces ‘inappropriate behaviour’ allegations – despite unfollowing the fashion designer


Mel B has revealed the Spice Girls are supporting their bandmate Geri after her husband Christian Horner was accused of inappropriate behaviour.  

Former racing driver Christian, 50, is currently being probed over claims that he sent ‘sexually suggestive’ texts to a female employee on his Red Bull F1 team – allegations which he has vehemently denied.

Geri, 51, was said to be ‘devastated’ over the scandal with a source telling MailOnline she had not felt able to engage with her bandmates – even going as far as to unfollow all of the Beckham’s on social media. 

She also deleted Red Bull star Max Verstappen, however later appeared to have a change of heart when she re-followed David, Victoria and Max sometime later. 

Now, Mel B has insisted the girls have been in touch with Geri, and is leaning on Victoria for support, with Posh ‘supporting her in any way she can.’

Speaking to The Sun on Saturday, Scary Spice said: ‘We have a WhatsApp group and we have sent messages.’

It was also revealed Geri is ‘leaning on’ Victoria for support as she previously helped the designer through her own marriage troubles. 

A source told OK! Magazine: ‘They always got on well and have been there for each other through the difficult times. 

‘When Geri was having a bit of a stormy relationship with some of the other Spice Girls, Victoria supported her and helped her through. It’s the same now Victoria wants to support Geri any way she can. 

‘Victoria and David have had some really low points together as a couple and Geri was there for her.’ 

MailOnline has contacted Geri’s representatives for comment.  

It comes just days after Geri unfollowed her Spice Girls bandmate Victoria – and David and Brooklyn Beckham – as the fall-out from the scandal turned toxic.

At the the time, a source told MailOnline: ‘There have been hundreds of fall outs between Geri and Mel B over the years, not least when Mel let slip that she and Geri had slept together a few years ago.

‘But Geri has never had a problem with the Beckhams until now.’

They continued: ‘You get different accounts of what is going on from different people but the bottom line is that she seems to be taking Christian’s problems very hard. 

‘All of the girls have reached out to her but she’s not felt able to engage with them. She is devastated and it’s possible that she feels that the Beckhams could have given her – and Christian – more public support.’ 

It indicated some extraordinary infighting, with F1 insiders saying that the current allegations, relating to alleged bullying and ‘inappropriate behaviour’ made by a female colleague appear to be part of a ‘power struggle’ within the team. 

While Christian denies the claims a Dutch paper De Telegraph claimed to have seen messages at the heart of the probe, and alleges that they were ‘sexually orientated’. 

When the news broke on February 6, it was said only that he was accused of ‘incredibly controlling behaviour’ by a female colleague. He denied it fully and appeared relaxed at a media event when he said that he had a ‘very supportive wife’ in former Spice Girl Geri, who is standing by him.

Two weeks later De Telegraaf reported that Horner allegedly sent sex messages to the woman employee ‘over an extended period of time’.

The source of the leak has caused a sensation: Red Bull’s star driver, Max Verstappen, is Dutch, as is his influential father, Jos.

It is perhaps unfortunate that Geri, ‘unfollowed’ Verstappen on Instagram soon after the De Telegraaf story was published. 

After the unfollowing became public, Geri swiftly re-followed Verstappen and David and Victoria. It’s not clear what the Beckhams have done to get dragged into the scandal.

Geri’s publicist claimed – despite screen shots which appear to show the opposite – that it is ‘inaccurate’ to say Geri had unfollowed anyone.

One friend told the Mail: ‘Geri worked very hard to get that marriage — there is no way she is letting it go. She always said she was determined to find her prince, and she felt she had with Christian.’

With her husband and children, she has carved out an idyllic country life at their Cotswolds estate.

Sources say Geri has been ¿flattened¿ by the scandal - especially as the alleged recipient is a colleague she knew well - and the nature of the messages

But sources say Geri has been ‘flattened’ by the scandal – especially as the alleged recipient is a colleague she knew well – and the nature of the messages.

A friend added this week: ‘Geri is devastated and has been struggling to eat and sleep. Her family and fellow Spice Girls are worried about her.

‘I hear Christian is trying to pep her up to stay positive, but she has gone to ground in the way she did after she left the Spice Girls. She’s not speaking to anyone.’

The source believes Geri may skip the trip to Bahrain for the Grand Prix, as she cannot face the scrutiny.

Christian refused to comment on the investigation into his own alleged ‘inappropriate behaviour’ on Thursday but said he hopes there is a ‘resolution as soon as possible’. 

Horner was carrying out his Red Bull team principal as usual in Bahrain, amid the investigation launched earlier this month.

During the press conference at F1 testing, Horner said he was unable to talk about the ongoing investigation because he was a ‘part of it’ but said the ‘process was under way’. 

Horner, who was reluctant to elaborate further, finished by saying he hoped a resolution could be found as soon as possible. 

The 50-year-old said: ‘There is a process underway and since I am part of it, I cannot comment on it. We hope there is a resolution as soon as possible.’

The allegations against Horner have overshadowed the run up to the 2024 F1 season – which got off to an inauspicious start when the morning’s session was abandoned after Lewis Hamilton hit a drain cover.

Horner denies the claims emphatically and his wife Geri, formerly Halliwell, is standing by him as he fights for his reputation.

Mail Sport understands a determination on the inquiry may be made by the end of the week.
