SPICE Girl Melanie Chisholm has split from her boyfriend of seven years Joe Marshall.
He became her manager and the couple moved in together in North London along with Scarlett and his two children.
But yesterday a source said: 'Mel has an incredibly busy career between her book deal, DJ-ing and other plans.
“The little free time she does have is devoted to her daughter Scarlett, and that doesn’t leave much time for a relationship.”
They said the split was “amicable” but added that Mel was “not afraid to be single if she thinks it’s for the best”.
