Heidi Klum says Mel B will tell her side of the story in her new memoir

Heidi Klum says close friend Mel B’s explosive new memoir will give the former Spice Girl an opportunity to ‘tell her side of the story.’ 

The German-born model voiced her support for her fellow America’s Got Talent judge and her upcoming book Brutally Honest, at the amfAR Gala in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Speaking from the red carpet to DailyMailTV, Klum, 45, admitted she has not yet read the draft, but said it was ‘important’ that Mel gets things ‘off her chest.’

The supportive supermodel revealed she’s witnessed the singer struggle with the pressures of her very public divorce and bitter custody battle, two topics that will be discussed in her memoir. 

‘I mean it is definitely not the easiest of things when you have personal things that are dragged through for the entire world to see,’ Klum told DailyMailTV.

‘It is definitely not easy and I have been there right by her side witnessing how hard that is for her. It is not easy to step out all the time and people look at you.

‘I cannot wait to read it myself. I think it is good, I guess, when you want people to know what really happened, so you have that opportunity in a book to get your side of the story. 

‘A lot of the times, obviously tabloids change things, they get amped up or a lot of lies are being told. So I think it is important that she gets it off her chest and she can tell her side of the story.

‘I cannot wait to read it.’ 

Brutally Honest, will be released on November 27, 2018

Mel, 43, is set to release her tell-all on November 27 and lift the lid on some of her darkest moments in the past decade including her suicide attempt in 2014. 

In drafts obtained by DailyMailTV, Mel – real name Melanie Brown, discusses hitting rock bottom the night before the UK X Factor grand finale in 2014 and swallowing 200 aspirin.

She will also detail her struggles with drinking and cocaine addiction, her threesomes, her controversial relationship with Eddie Murphy, and her fractious relationship with the Spice Girls.

DailyMailTV previously reported that Mel admits to having a string of cosmetic surgeries and even a vaginal rejuvenation to get over her divorce to ex-husband Stephen Belafonte.  

Klum, dressed in a red ruffled gown, also weighed into another star drama: the reboot of her hit reality show Project Runway.

With her and Tim Gunn’s departure, Bravo hired supermodel Karlie Kloss as the show’s new host and executive producer, and CFDA fashion designer Christian Siriano as a mentor. 

Klum gave the new cast a seal of approval and said she believes she left the show in ‘great hands.’

‘I think they are going to do a good job. I can’t wait to see how they will change it,’ she said. 

‘It needed some change but it’s been stale [after] 16 years. It was great, but it needed something new, and I feel with new people it will have that so I am excited for that.’
