Emma Bunton raked in £6 million for the Spice Girls tour.
The ‘Wannabe’ singer – known as Baby Spice in the band – brought home the most amount of money from touring the UK and Ireland with her bandmates, Geri Horner, Mel B and Mel C.
Monsta Touring Limited and Monsta Productions Limited were set up by Emma earlier this year and she raked in no less than £4 million and £1 million respectively. The girl group also banked £4.5 million in one group company, which would give Emma another £1 million to add to her own pot.
A source told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “Emma’s not just a talented singer, she’s a shrewd businesswoman. She set up the two new companies for the tour earnings and the paperwork has shown just how hugely successful this has been for her.
“Emma and the girls also banked £4.5million for the tour in a group company run by all of them, so she also made just over a million from that.While the tour was massively lucrative, the best bit for Emma was just being back on stage with her bandmates, which she absolutely loved.”
And there may be more money to make as Melanie C recently revealed she would love to tour the United States with the Spice Girls following their 2019 reunion.
She said: “We love being in the USA and have had so many great times there doing TV shows and promotional stuff. And we so want to get back there. We do not have any plans, but we are hooking up quite soon and that needs certain discussion. We need things to look forward to and we can make good plans for something positive in the future.”
