When Mel B stormed off the Sunrise set on Monday morning, the audience wasn’t quite sure whether she was serious.
In response to the millionth comment about her supposed “feud” with fellow X Factor judge Iggy Azalea, the singer flung her arms up in mock horror, got up from her seat, and said: “Oh gosh. I’m leaving. Like, what is all this?”
At first, the former Spice Girl laughed off the Sunrise hosts’ insinuation she and Azaelea didn’t get along.
When presenter Natalie Barr asked if Azaelea felt “scared and a bit threatened” by Mel B’s late addition to the programme, the 41-year-old responded, “Oh God, no.”
“She’s got a massive career, she’s highly, highly successful. And we get on, so…”
But the questioning about her relationship with Azalea was unrelenting.
“Do you? Do you really?” pressed Barr, to which she responded, “I know you’re trying to get some rivalry between me and Iggy, but there isn’t any.”
Koch even asked Mel B whether Azalea would be a good addition to the Spice Girls (?!?!), receiving a stern reply: “There’s only five Spice Girls in the whole entire world, and that’s it, so ZIP IT.”
Literally every single time the made-up feud between the artists was brought up, Mel B articulately refuted it and tried to change the topic.
But that didn’t stop Koch from ending the interview with a reference to it, prompting Mel B’s walk out.
