Cape Town - Mel B just got candid about her health scare last week.

The 43-year-old Spice Girl took to Instagram on Tuesday to explain that she went blind in her right eye and her left eye went blurry before being diagnosed with inflammation in the eye.

In her post, Scary Spice thanked her followers for their support.

"Thank you so much for all the lovely support and messages I’ve had about my eye," Mel B wrote.

"Just so you know the real truth. I had an awful experience last week when I went blind in my right eye and my left eye went blurry."

Mel B went on to slam reports that said she was fine, Fox reports.

"Even though the stupid press said I’m ok and this has happened to me many times before, just to be clear I was NOT ok and this has NEVER EVER happened to me before," the singer wrote in part.

"I was actually in a lot of pain and very scared," she continued, explaining she was eventually diagnosed by an eye specialist with severe iritis in her right eye and uveitis in her left eye.

"I’m taking multiple prescription heavy duty eye drops and other medication the dr gave me that I have to take every day to keep the inflammation under control. Also, I’m being so well looked after by Team Spice special thanks to our paramedics too!!

"I’m still dealing with it and will be for the next 3/4 months to fully get it under control but I’m no longer worried that my condition will get worse (sic)," she wrote.


In November 2018, the Spice Girls announced that they’ll be going on a reunion tour this year.
