It was claimed that they ‘flirted and kissed in a Hollywood club’ as a distraction technique, in light of her alleged relationship with a Los Angeles police officer.
But rumours of the apparent romance between Mel B and her hairdresser Gary Madatyan gained traction on Friday when she shared a snap of him kissing her neck in a seemingly intimate Instagram post.
The former Spice Girls singer, 42, who is embroiled in a bitter divorce battle with ex Stephen Belafonte, said in the caption to the photo shared with her one million followers: ‘The love of my life, thank you for believing in me.’
Her followers were quick to speculate that things had become ‘official’ with the hairdresser in the steamy new social media selfie.
Tattooed entrepreneur Gary, who has been known to donate proceeds from his hair salon to aid charities for victims of domestic abuse, was filmed kissing Mel as they partied at an MTV VMAs after party in August.
