Whoa. So last week, former Spice Girl Mel B (real name Melanie Brown) missed a taping of the British version of "X Factor" after heading to the hospital because of stomach pains. But now it turns out that was a bit of a fib. A source tells Radar Online that Brown "was hospitalized because she mixed tranquilizers, including Xanax, with alcohol. It was absolutely accidental and not intentional. She wasn't suicidal, but the pressure of being back in London brought a lot of unresolved issues to the surface concerning being estranged from her mother, Andrea, and the rest of her family." Dang, source, ease off with the over-sharing. You could've just left it at "not intentional." Brown has reportedly been holed up in a London hotel with her daughters since leaving the hospital and has been cleared by doctors to return to the U.S.
