The former Spice Girls star shared the sad news of her father's passing on her social media back in March.

In a statement posted to her Instagram account, Mel wrote: 'It is with great sadness after a 5yr battle to multiple myeloma cancer our loving father Martin Brown passed away age 63 peacefully yesterday.

'Both of us his children were by his side and would like to say thank you to St Gemma's and all the doctors and nurses for there amazing care and support over the years. 

'Please respect our privacy and let us as a united family grieve. With love and respect. Melanie and Danielle Brown x Be Free Dad (sic)'.

Mel is said to have had a fractious relationship with her mother and sister over the past years after they reportedly fell out over her relationship with Stephen Belafonte.

However, they seemed to have put their differences aside and spent some quality time together in London earlier this year when Mel was in the British capital to film a TV show.

Asked how her and her mother got on and if she was in contact with Danielle, Mel said: 'Yes, she came down yesterday, saw the kids and watched the show. Then we hung out and went for dinner with the kids ... Yes. Family is family. There's no point talking about that.'

Mel has claimed she was told to 'suck it up' when her father Martin Brown finally lost his five-year battle with cancer, last month.

The death, which is said to have prompted Mel's moment of clarity about her 'abusive' 10-year marriage, reportedly garnered little sympathy from husband Stephen Belafonte, the explosive divorce papers state.

The 41-year-old allegedly withheld the former Spice Girl's passport, stopping her from travelling to the UK where Martin was on his deathbed.
