Mel B is reportedly ready to reconcile with her mother, father and sister after six years of estrangement.
Mel B is ready to reconcile with her family.
The former Spice Girls singer hasn't spoken to her mother Andrea, father Martin or sister Danielle for six years because they disapprove of her marriage to Stephen Belafonte, but now she has returned to the UK - after being based in the US and Australia for work - to judge 'The X Factor', she is ready to heal their rift.
A source said: ''Mel feels it's time to let bygones be bygones.
''She's feeling very positive about her career at the moment, and so doesn't want this family rift to keep rearing its ugly head.
''Hopefully by the end of the year they will all be on good terms again.''
However, Mel - who has two-year-old daughter Madison with Stephen, and daughters Phoenix, 15, and Angel, seven, from previous relationships - is said to have an ulterior motive for reconciling with her family; she doesn't want them speaking negatively about her.
The source added to the Daily Star newspaper: ''It has crossed Mel's mind that there's going to be a lot more attention on her once 'The X Factor' properly kicks off.
''And the last thing she needs will be having family members airing her dirty laundry in public.''
It was recently claimed Andrea had been bombarding her daughter with messages to reunite, but had had no response.
A source said: ''Andrea is scarred by what has happened with Mel. They used to be so close.
''She is desperate to be part of her life again and in the last few days and weeks she has been trying to reach her on Twitter.
''So far Mel hasn't replied, but Andrea is hoping that now she is in the UK then she might relent and finally let her back in her life.''
