Spice Girls favourite Melanie ‘Mel B’ Brown is grieving today, announcing the tragic news that her beloved dad Martin has passed after a tragic battle with cancer.
The star, 41, shared her grief on Instagram with a highly emotional photo showing herself and sister Danielle holding their father’s hand.
‘It is with great sadness after a 5yr battle to multiple myeloma cancer our loving father Martin Brown passed away age 63 peacefully yesterday,’ Mel wrote. ‘Both of us his children were by his side and would like to say thank you to St Gemma’s and all the doctors and nurses for there amazing care and support over the years.
‘Be Free Dad.’
The tragedy forced something of a family reunion for the star, after her sister revealed just last month that she hadn’t seen Mel in eight years.
