Mel B - Mel B's ex-husband: I wanted to kill myself

Mel B's ex-husband claims their rows made him want to commit suicide.

The former Spice Girls singer split from Jimmy Gulzar in 2000 after just two years of marriage, and he admits the subsequent disputes they had over the custody of their daughter Phoenix, now 15, were so bad, he considered taking an overdose.

He told The Sun newspaper: ''There's been many a time when I thought, 'Nope, this is it, I'm giving up. I am gonna take this bunch of pills and goodbye people, because this is too heavy.''

Jimmy - who met Mel when he was a backing dancer for the Spice Girls - admits he is still desperate for his former wife to get her comeuppance.

Talking about his difficult relationship with the 39-year-old star, Dutch-born Jimmy said: ''I always think about Goliath facing David, that story is pretty much how I have always felt.

''I am still waiting to throw that one rock that will get Goliath down.''

Following their divorce, Jimmy moved to America to be nearer his daughter as Mel's career took off over the pond.

But it wasn't easy for the family and Phoenix filed a battery report with police in 2011, after Jimmy refused to let her leave after his custodial time with her.

Mel, who has just joined the judging panel of UK TV show 'The X Factor', is now married to Stephen Belafonte and the couple have two-year-old daughter, Madison together, as well as raising her seven-year-old daughter Angel - whose father is Eddie Murphy - and his eight-year-old girl Giselle.
