Mel B has attended the funeral for her late father.

The former Spice Girl bid her final farewell to her father Martin Brown on Friday (24.03.17) in a ''low-key affair'' which saw Mel's Spice Girls band mate Emma Bunton and Atomic Kitten member Kerry Katona amongst the guests.

Mel, 41, was spotted arriving at Los Angeles International airport on Thursday (23.03.17) with her three daughters - Phoenix, 18, whom she has with ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar, Angel, nine, from her fling with Eddie Murphy, and Madison, five, whose father in Mel's estranged husband Stephen Belafonte - as they prepared to fly back to the UK for the funeral, which took place in Mel's home city of Leeds.

A source told The Sun newspaper about the funeral: ''The funeral was planned to be a low key affair, but with the family all back on good terms it looked like things would be very peaceful and sensitively done.

''It's obviously been a very tough time after Martin's passing - but they're so pleased to be back together as a family.''

For Mel, the funeral comes just days after it was revealed she has filed for divorce from her husband and film producer Stephen, after citing ''irreconcilable differences''.

It was reported the pair - along with Mel's three daughters - had attended family therapy session in order to ''make sure their kids are OK'' in the wake of the split.

The pair were said to have travelled in separate cars to the session which took place in Mulholland Estates in Beverly Hills, at the home of Mel's long time psychiatrist Doctor Charles Sophy.

And all three children travelled in a third car with their nanny.

The reported family therapy session is believed to be the first session of this kind that the pair have attended, though it was previously reported they had tried couples therapy before their split to no avail.

A source said: ''They started from the beginning when they realised they were very different people, who would argue and row. Their personalities were like fire and ice, one minute it was pure adoration and the next it was an all-out war.

''It led to them having blow-out arguments non-stop. However, as they got further down the line, the stress of keeping things together proved too much. The therapy prompted more fights and bitterness. Their connection by the end was all but burned out.''
