Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown is reportedly not ready to call a truce with her mother Andrea or sister Danielle, despite their efforts.

The 39-year-old singer moved back to the UK from Australia earlier this year when it was announced she would appear as a judge on the latest series of The X Factor, but is yet to make up with her estranged mother and sister, reported Star magazine.


Mel grew apart from her family six years ago after they labelled her film producer husband Stephen Belafonte “controlling” and has had little contact with the pair as well as her father Martin ever since.

“Mel’s family is keen to put past rows behind them — this rift has gone on too long and they used to be so close. Andrea would like to make amends, but Mel’s not sure that she is ready,” a source said.

Andrea, 58, even tried to reach out to the star on Twitter to wish her a happy birthday when she turned 39 last month.
