“[Halliwell] would like you to know that what has been reported recently is simply not true and has been very hurtful to her family,” Halliwell’s spokesman Alan Edwards explained to USA Today. “It has been very disappointing to read about all these rumors again.” [source]
Despite the adversity Geri did want to assure concerned fans this incident will not cause tension between the ladies on their forthcoming reunion tour (set to kick off in May).
“Geri can’t wait to see the girls and all the fans on the tour, have an amazing time with everyone, and make some new memories.”
