Mel B is opening up about a suicide attempt in 2014 where she claims to have taken 200 aspirin.
In an excerpt from her book, “Brutally Honest,” the Spice Girls star talks about a suicide attempt on December 11, 2014, while she was in the middle of shooting for “The X Factor.”
“It will be the red-carpet launch for the final weekend. I’ll be wearing a beautiful dress, my hair and make-up will be perfect,” she wrote in an excerpt published by The Sun. “But if you want the absolute truth, I don’t care about any of it. My life is a mess and I want out.”
She delved into her reasoning for wanting to take her own life, writing, “I felt ugly and detested by the very man who once promised to love and protect me, my husband and manager Stephen. A man who after ten years of marriage now had a library of sex tapes that could — as we both well knew — ruin my career and destroy my family.”
After she says she took the 200th pill, she came to her senses: “Now what’s going to happen, Melanie? STOP! As soon as I’d swallowed that last pill, I knew I didn’t want to go anywhere. ‘Melanie! What the f*** are you doing? Get a grip!'”
She says she eventually lost consciousness and woke up at the hospital.
As The Blast first reported, Mel B and Stephen Belafonte finally came to an agreement in their long-running, and incredibly ugly, divorce battle.
