Melanie Brown is opening up about her 2014 suicide attempt.
In an excerpt from her memoir, “Brutally Honest,” the former Spice Girl admitted to taking “nearly 200 aspirin pills” in an attempt to escape her tumultuous marriage to producer Stephen Belafonte.
“I’ll be wearing a beautiful dress, my hair and make-up will be perfect. But if you want the absolute truth, I don’t care about any of it. My life is a mess and I want out,” she wrote in an excerpt published in Britain’s The Sun.
On Dec., 11, 2014, the night before filming the U.K.’s “The X Factor,” Brown said she started popping over-the-counter pills in her London home bathroom after returning from dinner with Belafonte.
“As each pill goes into my mouth, I ask myself: ‘Are you sure?’ And I take another one. Ten, 20, 50, 100. ‘Are you sure?'” she wrote. “One hundred and 20. ‘Are you sure?’ 150. ‘Are you sure?'”
She continued: “Behind the glitter of fame, I felt emotionally battered, estranged from my family. I felt ugly and detested by the very man who once promised to love and protect me, my husband and manager Stephen.”
