Victoria Beckham, who will performing with her Spice Girls bandmates at the London Olympics, agreed to the reunion only on the condition that the band will never reform again, it has been revealed.
The news that the fashion designer is keen to distance herself from the group that found her fame may not come as a huge surprise given the seemingly obvious tensions between her and the rest of the Spice Girls at the Viva Forever launch, where she posed for pictures standing away from the group.
“After the Olympics I can’t imagine even talking to her again, let alone being on a stage with her,” the Daily Mail quoted a friend close to Geri Halliwell as saying.
“Mel B. was right, she has lost the spirit of the band,” the friend added.
Mel C and Mel B had recently voiced frustration at being left off the bill for the Diamond Jubilee concert last month and it appears the girls blame Victoria.
“The Spice Girls have received some amazing invitations to perform over the last few years, however personal family and professional reasons mean this has not been possible, the Olympics is one more amazing opportunity but no announcement has been made or confirmation given, so this is nothing more than speculation at this time,” a spokesperson for Victoria said.
While there has been no official announcement about the girls taking part in the official Olympics closing ceremony a source revealed that the girls will be singing two numbers one of which will be their 1997 hit Spice Up Your Life, the other is thought to be Wannabe.
