Twenty-some years after they topped the international pop charts with “Wannabe,” literally the catchiest song of all time, the Spice Girls may finally get the reunion fans have been pining for.
If the tabloids are to be believed, the Spice Girls are currently in talks to collaborate on an upcoming tour, a new album, and maybe, just maybe, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding.
For now, none of this has been confirmed. But if it does happen, each Spice — Emma “Baby” Bunton, Victoria “Posh” Beckham (née Adams), Geri “Ginger” Horner (née Halliwell), Melanie “Scary” Brown, and Melanie “Sporty” Chisholm — will each net a reported $14 million. That’s enough to make anyone really really really wanna zigazig ah. Except maybe Posh Spice.
In their late-90’s heyday, the Spice Girls earned up to $75 million a year, according to Rolling Stone. Their first tour in 1998 grossed $60 million in its American leg alone, and a brief reunion tour in 2008, snagged the group another $70 million.
All these years later, some members could use the extra pocket money more than others. Here’s a look at what each Spice Girl is worth today, with help from Celebritynetworth.com and TheRichest.com.

After the Spice Girls broke up, Beckham inked ad deals for household brands like LG and Giorgio Armani — sometimes posing with her husband, soccer superstar David Beckham. In 2008, she launched a “Victoria Beckham” high-end fashion label that, as of last fall, was worth $139 million, according to Harper’s Bazaar. Last year, she teamed up with Target for a discount clothing line that sold out online minutes after it went on sale.
Whether or not Beckham is game for a reunion tour is still up in the air, but …read more
