Mel B’s recent injuries are the result of a fall down the stairs.
After saying that she was distressing from a severed hand and broken ribs Monday morning on IG, more facts are coming to brighten how the 43-year-old Spice Girls singer’s injuries occurred.
It was learnt that Mel was residing at a friend’s house in London, England, over the weekend and, when she woke up and decided to go down the stairs, she fell down a thin staircase. Her friend took her to the hospital where doctors resolute she needed a surgery, which she has already undertaken.
Mel was planned to fly back to Los Angeles, California, on Sunday, but is still recuperating in London. She was supposed to be in L.A. on Monday to take her court-insisted drug and alcohol test.
Nevertheless she won’t be in L.A. for the Monday test, it was learned that, when she reached the hospital in London, doctors did a drug and alcohol test, of which all of the results came back negative. Her rep says the drug and alcohol test at the hospital was compulsory per the doctors, not a part of her court-ordered test that she was obviously suppose to take on Monday.
Her rep earlier opened that the songster has tested negative on her last 14 drug and alcohol tests. Her rep claims that neither drugs nor alcohol played a role in Mel’s fall.

As an outcome of the summersault, Mel annulled a New York signing of her book, Brutally Honest, which she said would be rearranged. Additionally, on Monday’s Today, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb exposed that Mel’s scheduled co-hosting gig of the morning show’s fourth hour on Tuesday’s episode was canceled before gracing her the best.
Mel publicized her injuries in an IG post Monday morning, where she acknowledged the hospital staff and her fans for their support.

“When your besties show up to the hospital with hugs and laughter and A LOT of love, ahhhh I love my spice girls yipppeee #friendship #family #spicegirls,” Mel captioned the lovely post.
The injuries come in the middle of a busy time for the singer, who lately released her memoir, Brutally Honest, and is set to journey with the Spice Girls next year.
