Mel, Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Geri Horner (Ginger Spice), and Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice) flew to London on Friday to shoot promotional photos to announce their upcoming tour. They spent 14 hours in Hackneys Alva studios to film clips for social media, doing photo shoots, and recording song clips. But Victoria, 44, will not be a part of the tour at all because she got into a nasty fight with Mel, 43.

“The girls are furious with Victoria for initially agreeing to reunite, then pulling out. At one stage she even threatened to go legal if the girls cashed in on the brand minus her,” an insider revealed to Sun on Sunday. “They then took offense to her recreating her Spice Girls looks in a recent Vogue shoot, and basically said she was being a hypocrite.”
“By the end of the exchange, Melanie told Victoria: F–k off, you b—h! And that was pretty much the end of the conversation,” the source continued.
If the Spice Girls had reunited as their original five-piece group, they would have made £30 million (or $39,462,000) each for the tour. But since they are going on as a four-piece without Victoria, they will only be making £8 million (or $10,523,200) each.

Victoria has remained adamant that she had no interest in touring with her former bandmates, as shes got her hands full as a fashion designer, businesswoman, wife, and mother of four.
“Im not going on tour. The girls arent going on tour,” she told Vogue after she reunited with the other four Spice Girls earlier this year, and revealed what they talked about. “Theres something so strong in the message of what the Spice Girls stood for. What is that in the future? What does that look like? We were just bouncing ideas around. Brainstorming.”

London: Singer Mel B made a furious jibe at Victoria Beckham during an argument over Spice Girls reunion as the group announced that the reunion tour will start in May next year. Mel B told Victoria Beckham: “F*** off, you bitch!” during a heated bust-up over the Spice Girls reunion, according to The Sun. News of the row emerged as the remaining quartet — Mel, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner and Melanie Chisholm — flew in to London to make promotional material, announcing a UK tour. They spent 14 hours at a studio, filming clips for social media, plus photoshoots and song clips.
The much-awaited tour will begin in the UK next May, with extra dates in Europe. But Victoria, who was known as Posh Spice, will not be in the line-up following fiery exchanges with Mel B. The Sun quoted an insider as saying: “The girls are furious with Victoria for initially agreeing to reunite, then pulling out. At one stage she even threatened to go legal if the girls cashed in on the brand minus her. They then took offence to her recreating her Spice Girls looks in a recent Vogue shoot, and basically said she was being a hypocrite.
During the appearance, her fellow guest, Olivia Munn, jokingly suggested that the girl group should have different celebrities replacing Victoria.
“By the end of the exchange, Melanie told Victoria: F*** off, you b****!. And that was pretty much the end of the conversation.” The tour is set to feature dazzling costumes, dancers and pyrotechnics.
