A comment from Simon Cowell has made his fellow America’s Got Talent judge Mel B storm off set on live TV, but not before throwing her drink in his face.
After an anti-climactic audition from a hopeful magician who was a victim of a mechanical malfunction, Simon Cowell gave this feedback:
“I feel like this would be a lot like Mel's wedding night, a lot of anticipation… not much promise or delivery.”
Before Simon even finished his sentence, Mel stood up shocked, threw her cup of water at him and walked out, leaving host Tyra Banks awkwardly shouting, “This is live TV, Y'all. Live TV!”
There was a number of reasons why Mel was taken aback by the comment, besides it just being straight up rude.
The performer’s show centred around the theme of cancer involving a father, which Mel B recently experienced when her father sadly lost his battle with the disease.
She is also currently going through a messy divorce from her husband, Stephen Belafonte.
“The act before made me cry because it’s all about dads and cancer and I just lost my dad," Mel told Extra after the show.
“He goes and says something stupid like that, so then I got angry. How do you know what my wedding night was like all those years ago?"
“Mel B walked off and I wasn’t sure she was going to come back," Tyra added after the show. "Yeah, I don’t think it was an act. I mean, they are like brother and sister that tease each other, but brothers and sisters also get really pissed too."
