London: Spice Girls are reportedly divided over plans to release an album of previously unheard songs.
While Mel C and Mel B are in favour of putting out 60 tracks that have been recorded over the last 15 years, Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell - are against the idea, according to the Mirror.
Beckham, known as Posh Spice, is said to be against the idea as she wants to concentrate on her fashion career.
But Bunton - Baby Spice - and Halliwell - Ginger Spice - have taken their former manager`s Simon Fuller`s stance and agreed that it`s not the right time.
“The plans have caused friction between the five girls,” the Daily Mail quoted sources as saying.
“Even though the album would make millions, it`s not about the money for the two Mels.
”Both Melanies want to open up the band to a new generation of fans and keep the memory of the Spice Girls alive.
“They also believe it`s sound commercial sense to keep options open for new work down the line.
“But Victoria has a hugely successful career as a designer and is pregnant. She’d rather distance herself from the group to concentrate on that. She’s not keen to revisit the Spice Girls days.
“Also, if Simon Fuller doesn’t feel the timing is right, Emma and Geri don’t want to go against him. But it is safe to say this divide is causing friction within the group.”
