Geri's secret new nightmare...

She’s had a difficult few months after her husband, Red Bull boss Christian Horner, was embroiled in a scandal after being accused of inappropriate behaviour by an employee. And now insiders say that Geri Halliwell Horner has a new drama in her life, after reports claimed that she and her husband had been at loggerheads with neighbours over extension plans.


Geri, 51, and Christian, 50 – who share six-year-old son Monty, as well as Geri’s 18-year-old daughter Bluebell and Christian’s 10-year-old daughter Olivia from previous relationships – have reportedly been criticised by neighbours for their plans to build a second swimming pool at their Oxfordshire mansion. Locals have called the proposal for an open-air pool “greedy”, and fear it will disturb the village church next to their house.

And sources say the drama has been getting Geri down, as recent pictures of her looking glum suggest. A source says, “Christian’s scandal has been enough to deal with and Geri is in a fragile place – even the smallest thing can send her spiralling.”

The drama comes just months after Christian was accused of misconduct by a female employee, who claims he sent her “inappropriate text messages” that amounted to “coercive behaviour”. While WhatsApp screenshots went viral, Christian denied the accusations and was exonerated after an internal investigation – but his complainant has appealed.

Now, the source adds, “This latest drama with her neighbours is the last thing Geri needs. She's trying to put on a brave face, but it’s easier said than done when she feels like it’s one hurdle after the next. Her friends are rallying round in an attempt to lift her spirits and ensure she prioritises her mental health, which she’s struggled with in the past.
