We’ve been reporting about Mel B.’s breakup and divorce from her husband for months now. And while we know more than we probably should, we haven’t really heard Mel B.’s side of the story. While she can’t say too much, as she’s still in the midst of divorce proceedings and her soon-to-be-ex-husband has proven himself vindictive, she did take some time out to share this Instagram post, that shed just a little bit of light on the whole thing.
The post speaks not only about the divorce but about the death of her father and how it helped give her strength to finally leave.
