Mel B has revealed the “real truth” about her ill health after losing her sight in one eye, just days before heading out on tour with the Spice Girls.
The 43 year old will join bandmates Emma Bunton, also 43, Geri Horner, 46, and Melanie C, 45, in Dublin for the opening night of their 13 date UK tour on Friday.
But Mel threw fans into a panic over the weekend when it was reported that she had been hospitalised after losing her sight.
Taking to Instagram, she cleared up the hearsay to her 1.4million followers.
Alongside an image of her showing off her bandaged eye, she wrote: “Thank you so much for all the lovely support and messages I’ve had about my eye. Just so you know the real truth. I had an awful experience last week when I went blind in my right eye and my left eye went blurry.
“Even though the stupid press said I’m ok and this has happened to me many times before, just to be clear I was NOT ok and this has NEVER EVER happened to me before, so who every is selling this story ‘a close reliable source’ is full of BS and needs to get there silly facts right big time. [sic]
“I was actually in a lot of pain and very very scared but thanks to the incredible eye specialists in A&E at London’s Moorfields Hospital and after at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital I was diagnosed by and eye specialist with severe IRITIS in my right eye and UVEITIS in my left eye. [sic]
“I’m taking multiple prescription heavy duty eye drops and other medication the dr gave me that I have to take every day to keep the inflammation under control.
“Also I’m being so well looked after by Team Spice special thanks to our paramedics too!! im still dealing with it and will be fir the next 3/4 months to fully get it under control but I’m no longer worried that my condition will get worse. [sic] ”
She quipped: “My only problem now is I have to find a very cool Scary eye patch. Does anyone – apart from Madonna – know where I can get one?”
Mel’s army of fans were quick to wish her well, with one writing: “Love you Mel! Hope you get better soon.”
A second added: “Absolute trooper. You are one woman who goes through thick and thin and still comes through it all standing. You deserve a medal, Mel.”
