Geri apologises for quitting in 1998
Geri Horner has apologised for quitting the Spice Girls in 1998, as the band played the last date of their reunion tour.”I need to say something I should have said a long time ago,” she told fans and her bandmates at Wembley Stadium.”I’m sorry. I’m sorry I left. I was just being a brat. It is so good to be back with the girls that I love.”Geri, aka Ginger Spice, walked away from the band at the height of their fame 21 years ago.At the time, she said she was suffering from exhaustion and needed a break.Years later, in the documentary Giving You Everything, she explained she’d become distanced from the rest of the band.”I felt I didn’t belong any more. They didn’t need me any more, really, and I definitely felt very redundant.”Geri’s apology came on the 13th and final date of the Spice Girls’ UK stadium tour, just before the band played Goodbye, the number one single that addressed her departure.
