Grieving Mel B has dashed back from her father’s funeral to the US and Simon Cowell .

The former Spice Girl’s life has been thrown into turmoil by the death of her dad Martin and plans to divorce Stephen Belafonte . She is likely to be quizzed about her heartbreak on Monday at the launch of America’s Got Talent , which she judges. But at least Scary Spice will have the support of music mogul Cowell, 57.

On Thursday Mel, 41, flew in for Martin’s ­funeral after ending a 10-year rift with her family. Our exclusive Sunday People pictures show sister Danielle and mother Andrea leaving the service in Leeds. Pals say she is desperate to thrash out divorce terms with Belafonte, 41, who was pictured wearing a ring on his wedding finger on Friday.

A friend said: “Mel wants to sort things out and move on. She faces a tricky Monday with the AGT launch.

“Journalists from around the country attend and her divorce and recent loss are sure to come up.
