Mel B was spotted taking a walk with her hairdresser, Rory McPhee, who she’s rumoured to be dating.
The Spice Girl, 44, and the stylist, 31, were spotted on Wednesday, August 25, for the first time since rumours began swirling that they are an item.
They were seen strolling in Leeds with Mel’s new guard dog, a Rottweiler, on a lead.
Rory held the Rottweiler while Mel walked alongside him, carrying her other dog, a Yorkshire Terrier.
They were joined on their walk by two staff members from the company Total K9, who provide guard dogs and dog training.
In 2019 news emerged that Mel had enjoyed a string of dates with handsome hairdresser Rory and in May this year she hinted that she had found love.
They are said to have been dating “on and off for the past two years” and went to a friend’s wedding together five weeks ago, making their romance official.
A source told The Sun that Mel “can’t stop smiling when she’s around” the hairstylist.
The pair are said to have met through Mel’s cousin, the actor Christian Cooke.
Hairstylist Rory splits his time between Leeds and London while Mel B recently swapped her Hollywood home for Leeds.
She told Jonathan Ross: “[I’m] back in Leeds.”
Rory often shares snaps on his Instagram account of him cutting Mel B’s hair and the pair laughing together.
Mel B was married to Stephen Belafonte but they separated in December 2016, with the TV presenter accusing Belafonte of “emotional and physical abuse”.
Just last week Mel revealed she is haunted by a terrifying nightmare in which her ex-husband Stephen Belafonte cuts her finger off.
She said she had to be calmed down by her mother Andrea after waking up from the haunting dream, which was triggered by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Mel was diagnosed with PTSD after she accused Stephen, 44, of emotional and physical abuse during their 10-year marriage.
