Halliwell 'annoyed' by fellow Spice Girl's wedding snub

Halliwell 'annoyed' by fellow Spice Girl's wedding snub

Geri Halliwell was "annoyed" that Mel B didn't attend her wedding.

The 42-year-old singer tied the knot with Christian Horner, 40, at Woburn Abbey yesterday and had made her former Spice Girls bandmate's three-year-old daughter Madison a bridesmaid, but found out only hours before that they wouldn't be able to attend the ceremony, giving her "hardly any notice".

An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Mel called Geri with hardly any notice to say she couldn't make it. This is despite jetting into London from LA this weekend to meet with 'X Factor' bosses and discuss other future projects.

"Geri was annoyed but just rolled her eyes and blamed it on 'typical Mel'.

"All the events she's involved in end up full of drama."

A source added that the reason for the 39-year-old Scary Spice's cancellation was her "daughter's schooling", and she sent a public Twitter message to Geri during the ceremony, sending her love.

She wrote: "@GeriHalliwell wishing you the most beautiful special day of your life, I love you xxxx"

Ginger Spice probably didn't care about her friend not turning up too much, as her 40-year-old F1 boss husband gave her a £350,000 James Bond-style retro Aston Martin as a wedding gift, which she'd previously told him was her favourite car, after seeing it in 'Goldfinger'.

While Emma Bunton was the only Spice Girl able to make the wedding, Mel C was judging 'Asia's Got Talent' and Victoria Beckham was at Singapore Fashion Week.
