Former Spice Girls singer, Mel B has reacted to reports that the recent temporary blindness she suffered was due to her having herpes.
The former singer and tv show host debunked the claims on Instagram where she revealed what really made her go temporarily blind.
Mel B shared:
“Thank you so much for all the lovely support and messages I’ve had about my eye. 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. 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,so who ever is selling this story “a close reliable source” is full of BS and needs to get their silly facts right big time, I was actually in a lot of pain and very very scared but thanks to the incredible eye specialists in A&E at London’s Moorfields Hospital…”
She added that she was diagnosed of a rare condition despite speculations saying it was caused by Herpes.
“…After at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital I was diagnosed by an eye specialist with severe IRITIS in my right eye and UVEITIS in my 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.”
She concluded by saying she has only one concern:
“My only problem now is I have to find a very cool Scary eye patch. Does anyone – apart from Madonna – know where I can get one ??
