Mel C admits: 'I was bullied in the Spice Girls'

Mel C has admitted that she was bullied when she was in the Spice Girls.

In an interview with Attitude promoting her new record 'Version of Me', she admitted that “Version of Me is about being bullied. About being in a situation as a young adult where I felt bullied and how that has affected me, and moulded me in a way.”

“Unfortunately, being bullied can really damage people and even when you are stronger and over it, it can still be in the background – undermining you. I hope people will identify with that track,” Mel C continued.

She was then asked whether it actually happened in the Spice Girls too: “Yes. I’m not going to name names. But yes. It’s been addressed, they were aware of what they’d done. They apologised.”

“Now I’m older, I’m a lot more confident and I will not be shat upon. But when I was younger I let people shit on me. What’s done is done but I’d have liked to have been a bit stronger,” she continued. “When we were kids we were so hard on each other and so determined to succeed that if anybody fell out of line they were quickly brought back in. That was quite a lot of pressure to live under.”
