WE’VE ALL BEEN there, right? Spending £38 million and having nothing to show for it. That’s certainly what it feels like on the second last week of every month, anyway.

After a recent divorce, Mel B is struggling a bit financially and is worried that she’s set to lose a six-figure deposit that she put down on a house if she does not get a lend from friends to help her out.

According to The Mirror, she has also even asked Simon Cowell to make sure that she’s guaranteed work on America’s Got Talent as her contract only lasts another year.

To raise some cash, she’s selling the house she shared with her ex-hubsand Stephen Belafonte in Beverly Hills. Since entering the market, the price has been cut from £7.2m to £6.4m.

During divorce hearings, it was revealed that Mel B and Stephen Belafonte had accumulated a considerable amount of outstanding tax debts.

The £50m that she earned during the Spice Girls is gone and it’s reported that she has now got only £961 in one of her bank accounts.

Unfortunately, this is something that happens to regular people very often and there is nowhere for them to turn in order to get a dig out. Time will tell if celebs are willing to rush to financially aid the 42-year-old singer.
