Leeds singer Mel B has said a video she features in which highlights the horror of domestic abuse is important because it is “every woman’s story, it’s everybody’s voice”.
The former Spice Girl appears in a video that explores domestic violence through dance and has been made in collaboration with Women’s Aid, the charity of which she is a patron.
Mel B split from producer ex-husband Stephen Belafonte in 2018 after a decade, she claimed in her 2018 memoir Brutally Honest that she had suffered abuse – allegations Belafonte has repeatedly denied.
Speaking to ITV’s Good Morning Britain, she said: “You know that’s why this video is so important because it’s not just my story, (it’s) bits and pieces of my story, but it’s every woman’s story, it’s everybody’s voice, because we are dealing with an epidemic.”
The video sees the Spice Girls star recreating a woman’s escape from an abusive relationship and was inspired by the stories she has heard while a patron of Women’s Aid.
