Mel B hits out at Tom Meighan being eligible for BRIT Awards 2024 after abuse conviction

Mel B has hit out at former Kasabian member Tom Meighan being eligible for the 2024 BRIT Awards, despite him being convicted of domestic assault.

The Spice Girls singer voiced her disappointment in a statement to The Independent – saying that she feels let down by the decision to have a singer convicted of abuse being eligible to win a BRIT Award.

It comes after Meighan was among the acts included on the form for the voting academy for the 2024 edition.

Meighan parted ways with the Leicester group in July 2020, shortly before being charged with assaulting his partner Vikki Ager – who he married the following year. He was sentenced to 200 hours of unpaid work.

The BRIT buzz comes following the release of his solo album, ‘The Reckoning’, and he is eligible for Album of the Year, British Rock/Alternative Act, and Artist of the Year at next year’s ceremony.

“I am deeply disappointed that an organisation so highly respected within the music industry should make a choice like this,” Mel B told the outlet.
