Mel B Hospitalized after Fracturing Ribs and Hand, undergoes 3-hour Surgery

Mel B has been hospitalized in New York after she fractured her ribs and hand, an incident that made her undergo a 3-hour emergency surgery.

Mel B who shared a photo of her arm in a purple foam protector and a video of other Spice Girl group members – except Victoria Beckham – visiting her in the hospital, was on a whirlwind tour promoting her new book Brutally Honest, an autobiography exposing her allegedly abusive marriage to former husband Stephen Belafonte.


However TMZ gathered that she was staying at a friend’s house on Saturday night. She was asleep in an upstairs bedroom when she woke up and decided to go downstairs. The staircase was narrow and Mel lost her footing and fell.

The 43-year-old singer who confirmed that she fractured her ribs and hand via an Instagram post, disclosed that she had to cancel her latest signing but promised to reschedule.

She wrote;

Suffering two broken ribs, a severed right hand needing emergency care, to having had to have over a 3 hr surgery to repair the damage hence the purple sling.

I’ve had to unfortunately cancel my book signing today in NY, I apologise to each and everyone of you who bought their tickets to meet me today. I’m absolutely gutted but I can assure you it WILL happen at a later date. I promise.

For now my right hand/arm is all stitched up and I’m trying to keep still to heal my broken ribs, ohhh the pain, but I’m in super safe hands with the care of everyone here at the hospital!!!!! thank you all for understanding, I love you all #accidentshappen #hospital #needtimetoheal.
