The Spice Girls reunion tour has officially begun, but the road to show time hasn’t been entirely smooth. Melanie “Mel B” Brown ended up in the hospital after temporarily going blind in one eye. She revealed in a new Instagram post that she was diagnosed with iritis and uveitis.
“Thank you so much for all the lovely support and messages I’ve had about my eye,” Mel B wrote. “I had an awful experience last week where I went blind in my right eye and my left eye went blurry.”
Mel B added that she was in “a lot of pain” and “very very scared.”
Thanks to eye specialists, the issue is under control. Mel B went on to ask her followers for recommendations for a “very cool Scary eye patch.”
“Anyone — apart from Madonna — know where I can get one?” she asked.
Initial reports said that Mel B had experienced this eye issue before and that it was “nothing major.” She denied those reports.
