‘I did have a four-year relationship with a woman’ Mel B discusses same-sex dating
Mel B has opened up about her four year relationship with a woman
The mother-of-three confirmed she was in a relationship with a woman for four years before she met her husband of seven years.
Speaking to the Guardian, she said: “I did have a four-year relationship with a woman. But I’ve been very happily married for seven years to a p****. Ha ha! An amazing guy.”
It’s reported the woman in question is Crista Parker, a woman with children at the same LA school as Mel’s daughter Phoenix.

The news isn’t a shock to Mel B fans, as the star admitted to American radio host Howard Stern in 2010 she had been in a relationship with a woman.
During the interview the star said: “People call me lesbian, bisexual or heterosexual, but I know who’s in my bed and that’s it… I have a huge libido and a great sex life.”
Mel married her “soul mate” Stephen in 2007, but prior to that had a brief relationship with Eddie Murphy and was married to Jimmy Gulzar for two years from 1998.
Mel’s honest personality means she’s been very open with the details of her life, and this latest revelation hasn’t knocked her confidence.

The star spoke about her sexuality on Alan Car’s Chatty Man at the beginning of the month.
In response to a question about straight women becoming lesbians, Mel said: “Yeah, I was one of those for a few years.”
When asked if she was a lesbian, Mel said: “I would not call it that. I was just one of those ladies. Now I’m happily married.”
