Former Spice Girl Mel B says she had romantic experiences with women before marrying husband Stephen Belafonte in 2007.

In an interview with British TV host Alan Carr, the 39-year-old singer, who is currently an "X-Factor" judge, said she was "just one of those ladies" who had sexual experiences with women, according to the Daily Mail.

As E! Online pointed out, however, she stopped short of using the terms "lesbian" or "bisexual," noting, "I would not call it that ... Now I'm happily married."

Earlier this year, "Scary Spice" made headlines after photographs of her hugging and kissing a female friend while vacationing in Australia surfaced.

In 2013, she reportedly told Howard Stern that she'd had a five-year relationship with another woman, but that the pair eventually split because "women are crazy."

As to whether she'd ever been attracted to any of her Spice Girls bandmates, she noted, “I kissed all of them, yes. I got my tongue pierced and I wanted to try out my tongue piercing and so I kissed them all.”

“Back in the day I had fun,” she coyly added at the time.
