Spice Girls Reunion Tour: What Have They Been Doing Since Their Split?

Playing Spice Girls Reunion Tour: Where Have They Been Since 2000 Split?

The Spice Girls are reuniting!

Sporty, Baby, Ginger and Scary will kick off a UK tour June 1, 2019, they announced in a video Monday. Only Victoria Beckham – Posh Spice – will be missing from the lineup.

 

 

So what have the '90s British pop stars been up to since their hit debut single "Wannabe" debuted in 1996?

They each went on to record solo albums after they broke up in 2000, and have remained in the news for other, non-musical achievements. 

Melanie Brown / Scary Spice

Mel B, recognizable in the band for her animal prints and fierce attitude, released two solo albums after the Spice Girls went their separate ways in 2000. In 2013, she launched another single, "For Once in My Life."

She has appeared on multiple U.S. TV shows, including "Dancing With the Stars" in 2007. She came in second place with her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Other TV appearances included her own show on the Style network, "Mel B: It's a Scary World," and as a celebrity mentor on Australia's version of "The X Factor." She joined "America's Got Talent" as a judge in 2013.

She also appeared as Roxie in "Chicago" on Broadway in December 2016, and this year, her voice can be heard in the animated film, "Blazing Samurai."

While in the Spice Girls, Mel B married dancer Jimmy Gulzar and their daughter, Phoenix Chi, was born February 1999. She and Gulzar split the following year.

She later dated Hollywood funnyman Eddie Murphy, who was proven to be the father of her second child, Ange — born in 2007 — following a court-ordered DNA test.

She married film producer Stephen Belafonte in 2007 and had a child, Madison, in 2011. But last year, she and Belafonte divorced.

Emma Bunton / Baby Spice

After the band members went their own ways, Emma released a solo album, "A Girl Like Me," in 2001. She released two further solo albums.

Her TV appearances included a stint as a judge on the British celebrity skating competition, "Dancing on Ice," in 2010.

Since 2009, she has enjoyed a career as a radio host in London, even being named "Radio Presenter of the Year" at the 2017 Television and Radio Industries Club. In January, she took the helm of a new Sunday night show.

In 2004, she reunited with on-again-off-again boyfriend, British singer Jade Jones, and they went on to have two children in 2007 and 2011. They are currently engaged.

Along with Victoria Beckham, she's godmother to Geri Halliwell's daughter.

Geri Halliwell / Ginger Spice

Geri, known for her ginger locks, Union Flag dresses and platform shoes, was the first to leave the group in 1998. 

She scored three U.K. No. 1 hits with her debut solo album, "Schizophrenic." Her rendition of "It's Raining Men," which was released in 2001, was the biggest hit of her career.

In 2013, she was announced as a judge on "Australia's Got Talent" and released a new song, "Half of Me," that year. It reached No. 281 in the Australian charts.

Her 1999 autobiography, "If Only," became a best-seller. She donated some of the proceeds from the book to a Breast Cancer charity.

Three years later, she released a second autobiography, "Just for the Record." She's also signed a six-book deal for a children's series that details the adventures of Ugenia Lavender, a character based on Geri.

She also served as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations.

Her first child, Bluebell Madonna, was born in 2006. In 2015, she married British race car chief Christian Horner. They have one child together, Montague, who was born in 2017.

Happy anniversary! @christianhornerofficial 3 years! I ❀️you. 😊

Melanie Chisholm / Sporty Spice

Mel C, known in the band for her tracksuits and high pony tails, also enjoyed a hit solo career. She first branched off in 1998, when she released the worldwide hit "When You're Gone" with singer Bryan Adams.

She released her solo debut album, "Northern Star," the following year and it reached No. 4 of the U.K. albums chart. Since the Spice Girls disbanded, she has released seven solo albums and, as a solo artist, has sold 20 million albums.

She made her acting debut in a U.K. production of the musical, "Blood Brothers," earning a Lawrence Olivier Award nomination, and then played Mary Magdalene in a production of "Jesus Christ Superstar."

She's been public about her battles with clinical depression and an eating disorder. 

She had a daughter with property developer Thomas Starr in 2009. Three years later, after 10 years together, she and Starr parted ways. She is currently dating Joe Marshall, who is now her manager.

In February, she generated buzz of a Spice Girls reunion when she shared a photo of the band.

Victoria Beckham / Posh Spice

Victoria, known in the band for her pout and trademark LBDs, enjoyed a solo career — scoring four U.K. top 10 singles — before entering the world of fashion.

After collaborations with other brands and even a stint as a catwalk model, she launched her own fashion label, Victoria Beckham, in 2008. Her sleek designs have been worn by celebrities that include Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, Claire Danes and Viola Davis.

She's also appeared on U.S. TV shows like "Project Runway" and "American Idol," as a judge.

Victoria married British soccer star David Beckham in 1999 and they have four children together: Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper Seven.
