Former Spice Girl, Mel B has revealed she is checking into rehab after battling issues with booze, post-traumatic stress disorder and sex addiction.
The America’s Got Talent judge admitted she has been struggling for the past few months, which has prompted her to check into rehab.
She told Sun on Sunday: “The past six months have been incredibly difficult for me.
“I’ve been working with a writer on my book, Brutally Honest, and it has been unbelievably traumatic reliving an emotionally abusive relationship and confronting so many massive issues in my life.
“I am being very honest about drinking to numb my pain but that is just a way a lot of people mask what is really going on.
“Sometimes it is too hard to cope with all the emotions I feel. But the problem has never been about sex or alcohol — it is underneath all that.
“I am fully aware I have been at a crisis point. No one knows myself better than I do — but I am dealing with it.
“I have made the decision to go into a proper therapy program in the next few weeks, but it has to be in the UK because I am very, very British and I know that will work best for me.
“I am still struggling but if I can shine a light on the issue of pain, PTSD and the things men and women do to mask it, I will do.
“I am speaking about this because this is a huge issue for so many people.”
She also added: “I am working on being a better version of myself for my kids – whom I love more than life itself – and for all the people who have supported me.”
