Mel B has hit back at claims a drink or drug binge caused her injuries by showing a negative drink and drug test.
The 43-year-old needed a three hour operation on Sunday evening and was in a sling surrounded by her bandmates after her injury caused her to have a "severed right hand" and two broken ribs.
But a source close to the singer has revealed she just fell and cut her hand on glass, and this was not caused by any substances.
The source told The Sun : "She lost her footing, slipped and cut her hand on some framed glass picture frames.
“Mel is totally in control at the moment because she has to regularly take stringent drug and alcohol dtests as part of her custody battle.

"This was her 15th drug and alcohol test and she has cleared them all.
“She’s not going to accept any sort of slur on her reputation because Stephen wants to try and make her look bad. The results are there to see in black and white.”
Mel was tested for alcohol and a variety of drugs, including methadone, opiates, cocaine and marijuana.
Informing fans of her hospitalisation, she posted on social media: "Suffering two broken ribs, a severed right hand needing emergency care, to having had to have over a 3 hr surgery to repair the damage hence the purple sling.
