Mel B has been open about the being bisexual, but now one of her former female lovers has blabbed to a tabloid that she had a sexual tryst with Mel B in a public bathroom at Planet Hollywood Hotel in Las Vegas. In an interview published by The Sun on July 6, 2014, former Playboy model Luann Lee said that her hookup with Mel B happened when Lee was performing at the Peepshow at Planet Hollywood. According to Lee (who is 53), Mel B (who is 39) aggressively seduced her in a bathroom stall.

Mel B (whose real name is Melanie Brown) is also known as Scary Spice of the Spice Girls. In more recent years, she has reinvented herself by starring on reality shows, including being a judge on "The X Factor" Australia (in 2011 to 2012), "The X Factor" U.K. (as of 2014), "America's Got Talent (as of 2013) and "The Voice Kids" Australia (as of 2014). She has also been on "Dancing With the Stars" in America (as a contestant in 2007) and "Dancing With the Stars" in Australia (as a co-host in 2012). In 2010, she starred in the reality show "Mel B: It's a Scary World," which aired in the U.S. on the Style Network, and she hosted the dance/weight-loss contest "Dance Your Ass Off" on the Oxygen network.

Mel B has three children (all daughters) by three different men. Her first husband, Jimmy Gulzar (a former backup dancer for the Spice Girls), is the father of her eldest child Phoenix Chi Gulzar, born in 1999. Eddie Murphy (who never married Mel B) is the father of her middle daughter, Angel Iris Murphy, born in 2007. Her second husband, Stephen Belafonte (no relation to Harry Belafonte), is the father of her youngest child, Madison Brown Belafonte, born in 2011. Mel B and Belafonte have been married since 2007, the same year that Murphy and Mel B had a nasty and very public paternity dispute in which Murphy refused to pay child support for Angel until it was proven that he was her biological father. A DNA test proved that he is the child's father.

Mel B and Kelly Monaco were the first star performers at the Peepshow when it opened at Planet Hollywood in April 2009. Mel B and Monaco starred in the burlesque show form April to June 2009, The show closed in September 2013. Other star dancers in the Peepshow pver the years included Holly Madison (a former Playboy model also known as one of Hugh Hefner's ex-girlfriends), Josh Strickland (a former "American Idol" contestant), Aubrey O’Day (of Danity Kane fame), Coco Austin (also known as the wife of rapper/actor Ice-T).

Lee told the Sunday Sun how Mel B seduced her by following her into a public bathroom at the hotel while Belafonte waited outside: "It was very passionate and sensual. She’s like a man in that way — very assertive, very determined and very wanting. I can see why they call her Scary Spice.

"I went into the handicapped stall because it’s bigger and I wanted to put my purse down — and she just popped in with me. She said, ‘Do you mind?’ and came right in. Then she just threw me up against the wall and started kissing me. She was a good kisser. Her lips are very soft and full and she has a tender touch. It was maybe a five-minute kiss and after that she started going for other areas."

Lee says that the encounter lasted about an hour until a security guard went in the bathroom and interrupted their tryst. According to Lee, she and Mel B wanted to continue their fling but decided against it because of her marriage. Belafonte no doubt knows about Mel B's bisexuality because she has said in interviews that she and Belafonte like to go to strip clubs to enjoy the company of female strippers.

In 2013, Mel B told her "America's Got Talent" co-star Howard Stern on his radio show that she had a five-year romance with her close friend Christa Parker. In 2007, Parker told Closer magazine that Mel B also had a two-year affair in the mid-2000s with a movie executive name Christine. More recently, in February 2014, paparazzi photos were published of Mel B and two other bikini-clad women partying on a yacht in Sydney, with Mel B and one of the women kissing and groping each other, while Belafonte was nearby.

Mel B has often been quoted as saying: "People call me lesbian, bisexual or heterosexual, but I know who's in my bed and that's it. I have a huge libido and a great sex life."
