Heidi Klum and Melanie Brown are reportedly “super competitive” on the set of America’s Got Talent.
The German supermodel and former Spice Girl both landed gigs as judges on the hit US television show this year.
It appears critics’ fears have been realised and the women are frequently disagreeing behind-the-scenes.
“Mel and Heidi get into it backstage on America’s Got Talent. Mel B and Heidi Klum pretend that they are besties on air, but they are super-competitive about everything,” a source told Life & Style magazine.
Weight is apparently a major point of contention while Mel is said to be furious Heidi gets fawned over on a regular basis. Producers, however, don’t seem to mind.
“Heidi’s always saying she’s skinner than Mel! It bugs Mel that Heidi is always the center of attention, especially around guys,” the source said, adding, “There will always be drama on set between two beautiful women. It keeps the show exciting.”
Heidi and Mel have both blasted reports of tension on set.
The women admitted in March they have been bonding over motherhood.
“She’s lovely, absolutely adorable,” Mel B told Access Hollywood in March.
The former Spice Girl has a daughter with husband Stephen Belafonte and two children from previous relationships. She is also stepmother to the movie producer’s eldest daughter.
Heidi has three children with estranged husband Seal and an older daughter from a previous relationship.
The model said their connection as matriarchs helped them see eye-to-eye in the early days of filming.
She also rejected the idea that “claws will come out” just because they’re both strong, business-minded women.
“We might have claws, but I don’t think they will be scratching!” she mused.
