If you grew up in the 90s, you may want to stop reading because your childhood/teenage dreams are about to be shattered.

Melanie C (a.k.a. ‘Sporty Spice’) revealed that she was bullied by the group back in the day.

In a new interview with Attitude magazine she revealed that her album, ‘Version of Me’ “is about being bullied.”

She added, “It’s About being in a situation as a young adult where I felt bullied and how that has affected me, and molded me in a way. Unfortunately, being bullied can really damage people and even when you are stronger and over it, it can still be in the background — undermining you.”

She was then asked specifically if the bullying occurred while she was with the group, she answered, “Yes. I’m not going to name names. But yes.” Has it all been resolved? “It’s been addressed, they were aware of what they’d done. They apologized…Now I’m older, I’m a lot more confident and I will not be shat upon,” she says somewhat cryptically. “But when I was younger I let people s**t on me. What’s done is done but I’d have liked to have been a bit stronger.”

She added, “When we were kids we were so hard on each other and so determined to succeed that if anybody fell out of line they were quickly brought back in…That was quite a lot of pressure to live under.”

While she says those issues are now resolved, it does add to the story that Mel C wouldn’t be joining the girl group on their upcoming reunion next year.
