Mel B's Mum Denies Impoverished Childhood
Estranged parent takes issue with X Factor judge's claim on show...
Viewers saw Mel, 39, telling hopeful Kayleigh Manners that she grew up in the same deprived Harehills area of Leeds that the contestant hailed from.
But Mel's mum Andrea told The Mirror: "Melanie was brought up in Harehills? Well, that's news to us. It's always been Kirkstall, the other side of town."
And her sister Danielle twisted the knife, adding: "That's what happens when you forget your roots. I might start saying I grew up in Buckingham Palace."
Mel has apparently been feuding with her family since 2008.
