With unforgettable earworms like “Wannabe” and “Who Do You Think You Are,” as well as infectious personalities, the Spice Girls might be the most iconic pop group of all time. Now, the group plans to reform and go on tour, without Victoria Beckham. Still, even the news of an incomplete Spice Girls reunion has many talking about the stars’ incredible net worths…
Mel B: $10 million
As much as everyone rooted for Scary Spice, real name Mel B, she encountered more than a few problems after leaving the Spice Girls. Reportedly, her spending habits smashed her once-great net worth to $10 million. Hey, still not too bad! While this sum is still a lot, Mel B could have so much more in her savings if she didn’t spend money on expensive purses, jewelry, and other luxuries. According to sources, she even had to sell her Hollywood Hills home to generate some cash. Thankfully, we’re sure this Spice Girls tour will earn everyone quite a bit.
Melanie Chisholm: $33 million
Melanie Chisholm, better to the world as Sporty Spice, has done very well since her time in the group. When the group broke up, she debuted solo albums, just like everyone else, selling more than 12 million worldwide! From there, Chisholm decided to settle down, taking TV jobs that allowed her to spend more time with her family. Sporty Spice also showed her dramatic side as well, performing in TV musicals like Jesus Christ Superstar and the show Blood Brothers.
Geri Halliwell: $40 million
Like many of the members of Spice Girls, Ginger Spice, real name Geri Halliwell, did very well after the group ended. Unlike others, however, Halliwell truly worked hard at diversifying her creative portfolio. She started with a solo music career, even earning four singles that topped the charts. However, before long, Ginger Spice transitioned to writing and acting. Within a few years, she was even guesting on hit TV shows, like Sex and the City.
As an author, Halliwell authors books for children, and has also completed two autobiographies! Still, she set herself apart from the other Spice Girls the most by becoming a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations!
Emma Bunton: $40 million
Just like Halliwell, Baby Spice (Emma Bunton) tried the solo career first. Unfortunately, the move did not work out for Baby the same way it did everyone else. Still, she managed to find a job that suited her better. Today, Baby Spice hosts the Heart Breakfast Show in London with Jamie Theakston, as well as a Sunday evening show. True to her name, she also earns some side money from her company, which makes ecologically-friendly baby products!
Victoria Beckham: $450 million
The iconic Victoria Beckham – aka Posh Spice – remains the most successful of all the Spice Girls, with her $450 million net worth. Of course, her marriage to all-star soccer player David Beckham certainly helped her obtain a new level of stardom. However, Beckham has managed to stay independent and establish her own identity. She runs multiple fashion lines with her name attached, as well as being a world-renowned model. And Posh Spice still manages to find time to raise four kids! No wonder she can’t join the Spice Girls Reunion Tour!
