Mel B: 'I'll never let Halliwell forget she walked out on my birthday'

Spice Girls star Melanie Brown insists she'll never let former bandmate Geri Halliwell forget the fact she quit the band on her birthday.

Scary Spice has forgiven the singer for walking out on the band in the middle of an international tour in 1998 - but she always finds a way of reminding her whenever they meet up.

She tells newsman Larry King, "When Geri left the group, it was bad. She left on my birthday, and didn't tell anybody... Just didn't show up. We had the rest of the tour. The American part of the tour."

Mel B admits she felt bitter towards Ginger Spice for "a long time", but now they're friends again.

But she admits, "I still remind her of it... I saw her a couple weeks ago and I said, 'Do you remember when you left on my birthday?'

"She just felt the pressure too much, so just decided to take a break."
