Mel B, one of the judges of America’s Got Talent, has responded, after she threw a glass of water at Simon Cowell and angrily stormed out of the set of the reality TV show.
This happened after her fellow judge Simon Cowell made a joke about her wedding night as magician Demian Aditya attempted an escape trick involving a wooden box, fire and steel stakes.
The trick didn’t come off, leaving host Tyra Banks to explain that there had been a technical issue that was not Aditya’s fault.
It prompted Cowell to joke: “I kind of imagined this would be like Mel B’s wedding night. A lot of anticipation, not much promise or delivery.”
But Mel B didn’t see the funny side of the joke and hurled the content of her cup on the Cowell before she left.
Speaking about what happened later, Mel B said: “[Evie Clair] really made me cry because it made me think about my dad, and my dad recently passed away from cancer also, with an almost eight to nine years struggle. So a story like that from such a young girl really touches my heart,” she said. “She just sounded so beautiful and I couldn’t stop crying, so I go from that to Simon saying something so rude and inappropriate.”
Brown returned during the commercial break. “I told him he was an asshole and that was it and he goes, ‘Oh, whatever,’” Brown added.
The former Spice Girls singer is currently going through a contentious divorce with her husband of 10 years, Stephen Belafonte.
