Mel B’s seems to be causing trouble to the producers of America’s Got Talent. Now, they want to get rid of her and replace her with Queen Latifah by next season.
AGT production sources tell TMZ.com that Mel has been butting heads with people on set and producers think she comes with too much “baggage” for the amount of money the Spice Girl is getting paid. We’re told the situation worsened while Mel was entangled in her intense divorce from Stephen Belafonte.
She has previously fought on camera with Simon Cowell, tossing a drink at him, but apparently, even more tension behind the scenes.
When it comes to the replacement, there’s one hurdle. Latifah is under contract with the FOX series, Star.
