Victoria Beckham and Geri Halliwell have reportedly had a huge bust-up over the Spice Girls' future.
The 90s girl band - also made up of Mel C, Emma Bunton and Mel B - were set to reunite once more for a "final fling" world tour as well as releasing a new album.
However, Victoria - who has carved out a career as a successful fashion designer - doesn't want it to go ahead, leaving Geri furious and the pair are no longer speaking to each other.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Geri wants the girls to be back on the road as soon as they can. She's been trying to get in touch with Simon [Fuller] for the past few weeks but isn't getting anywhere.
"She and Victoria are no longer talking."
There were reports the girls - who reunited for a 2007 world tour - would go ahead without Victoria but their manager Simon Fuller isn't keen on the idea and won't get behind their plans.
The source added: "A tour without Victoria is a real risk. She may not do a load of the singing but she brings a lot more than people think to the table.
"On their reunion tour she brought Madonna's choreographer Jamie King on board and organised a lot of the outfits with Dolce and Gabbana.
"Simon regards the project as a real risk without VB and without him to mastermind the whole thing it's a tricky situation and probably won't happen."The women last performed together at the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony and at the world premiere of 'Viva Forever!' - a musical based on the group's songs - Victoria didn't arrive with the rest of the group and chose to spend the night with her husband David and their three sons.
