Mel B Going To Rehab For Sex Addiction & Alcoholism

Mel B is checking herself into a facility to help her cope with alcohol and sex addiction. The Spice Girls singer recently shared the news in an interview stating,

I have made the decision to go into a proper therapy [program] in the next few weeks, but it has to be in the UK because I am very, very British and I know that will work best for me. 

Stephen Belanfonte & Mel B

Over the past year, she has had a messy divorce from now ex husband, Stephen Belafonte. She says that she’s relived traumatic moments while writing her new book.

The past six months have been incredibly difficult for me. I’ve been working with a writer on my book, Brutally Honest, and it has been unbelievably traumatic reliving an emotionally abusive relationship and confronting so many massive issues in my life.

She continued,

Sometimes it is too hard to cope with all the emotions I feel. But the problem has never been about sex or alcohol– it is underneath all that. I am fully aware I have been at a crisis point. No one knows myself better than I do — but I am dealing with it. I am still struggling but if I can shine a light on the issue of pain, PTSD and the things men and women do to mask it, I will do. I am speaking about this because this is a huge issue for so many people.

Mel B will check into the facility next month. Kudos to her for having the courage to share her journey with the public.
