The solo career of Scary Spice, Melanie Brown, becomes quite difficult after the 2007 Spice Girls reunion. Despite proving herself as a successful TV talent judge, on formats such as X Factor and Americas Got Talent, Mel B has struggled in her personal life with accusations of Domestic Abuse and Drug addiction. Mostly connected to her marriage with Stephen Belafonte. Although Pod of the Pops is a light hearted podcast, and we are reloving these popculture moments, it would be amiss of us not to cover this indepth. As such, this episode does come with a trigger warning. Mostly, we are proud the Mel B found the courage to leave a situation that was clearly distressing and problematic for many involved. We think this can be a beacon of light for many people who feel trapped in their own situations and hope we can make a new episode, in many years time, that shows her going from strength to strength.
