Melanie Chisholm Splits from Her Boyfriend
It wasn't Viva Forever for
Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm and her partner of 10 years, property developer
Thomas Starr. Mel C's rep has confirmed that it's splitsville for the couple .
Mel and Thomas, who have a
three-year-old daughter Scarlet, first met while they were on holiday in
Barbados in 2002 and had been together ever since. The singer, 38, and Thomas,
44, lived in London.
Was there a hint
that the split was coming? In a recent interview with Good Housekeeping, Mel
confessed that "This year a new door has opened for me, and I’m
curious to know what’s going to happen next. But doing this feels
like my life has gone full."
She was, of course,
talking about reuniting with the Spice Girls to promote their musical Viva
Forever. In the interview, she'd added about Tom, "I’d like my
house to be run with military precision, but unfortunately someone else live
there – a man! So he scuppers that. We’re probably a good combination, though,
because he’s very spontaneous and I like to be organised."
Mel obviously changed her mind about that.
