In a new Guardian interview, former Spice Girl Mel B opens up about the four-year relationship she had with another woman before her marriage to Stephen Belafonte.

The singer, who was known as "Scary Spice" during her initial pop reign and is a judge on the British version of "The X Factor," says the woman in question is Crista Parker, a woman whose children attended the same school as her own daughter, Phoenix Chi Gulzar, who is now 15 years old.

People call me lesbian, bisexual or heterosexual, but I know who’s in my bed and that’s it," she told The Guardian's Simon Hattenstone. "I have a huge libido and a great sex life.”

The star then added, "Well, I did have a four-year relationship with a woman. But I’ve been very happily married for seven years to a penis. Ha ha! An amazing guy.”

While she stresses that she and Belafonte have a "very tight and solid" relationship that isn't open, she added, "But I will be the first one to compliment a woman, to say to my husband, ‘Oh my God, look at her legs;’ or ‘Doesn’t she look stunning?’ I do think women are gorgeous. Crazy but gorgeous."

Earlier this year, Mel B. told British TV host Alan Carr that she was "just one of those ladies" who had sexual experiences with women, according to the Daily Mail.

In 2013, she told Howard Stern that she'd "kissed all" of her Spice Girls bandmates.

"I got my tongue pierced and I wanted to try out my tongue piercing and so I kissed them all," she said at the time. “Back in the day I had fun."

CLARIFICATION: This article has been updated to specify that Mel B. is a judge on the British and not the U.S. version of "X Factor."
