In 'If Only' or 'just for the record' she says part of the reason was because they wanted a more r&b style and she didn't think that was her. A year after leaving she says she saw a billboard advertisement in USA whilst driving and realised she'd done the right thing (I think they were dressed in leather, the Holler promo stuff).

She knew she was going to leave and informed the group (others have confirmed this, mel c) during the tour, they wanted her to complete the tour which she had a go at but in the end just fled! If you can get hold of any of the pics of geri around this period she does look depressed and her 'transformation' was already taking shape (hair straight and dull coloured, black clothes).

Aside from that rather nice reason - she said in the documentary that she felt pushed out of the group "by one particular member", whether this was because they knew she wanted or was part of her reason for wanting to leave is still unknown.

Hope that helps smile.gif

i always remember hearing about Geri wanting to do some kind of charity event and the other girls not wanting to do which tipped off all the bad feeling she was already having and then she left.
dont know if thats true whatsoever

would have been alot better i think, i always saw her as the lead spice girl even though mel c clearly has the best voice, geri and mel b always stood out as the loud and determined ones
