Mel B explains why she threw a drink at Simon Cowell on 'America's Got Talent'



The show "America's Got Talent" took a unusual turn Tuesday night when the singer Mel B threw a drink at Simon Cowell after he made a comment about the former Spice Girls star's wedding night with her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte.

The incident occurred after the illusionist Demian Aditya failed to complete his magic act called "the death drop."

The host, Tyra Banks, explained that it was not the magician's fault and asked for the judges' opinions.

"Well, I kind of imagine this would be like Mel B's wedding night, a lot of...a lot of anticipation, not much promise or delivery," Cowell said.

The crowd burst with laughter, however, Mel B did not. She immediately got up and threw her cup of water at Cowell.

Mel B reportedly left the building after the incident.

"[Evie Clair] really made me cry because it made me think about my dad, and my dad recently passed from cancer also, with an almost 8-9 years struggle. So a story like that from such a young girl really touches my heart…She just sounded so beautiful and I couldn't stop crying, so I go from that to Simon saying something so rude and inappropriate," Mel B told E! News.

"So, my journey tonight was all over the place. But I'm a very real, honest person, so what you see is what you get," she added.

Mel B reportedly filed for divorce from Belafonte earlier in March. A month later, she was granted a restraining order from him after claiming that he had abused her for years.
