Mel B throws water at Simon Cowell

Mel filed for divorce from Stephen earlier this year.

Simon Cowell got more than he bargained for after making a cheeky quip about Mel B's marriage on America's Got Talent - which saw her storm off stage.

After a magician suffered a technical malfunction during his performance, Simon was asked to offer his opinion of the snafu.

When the host threw things to Simon, he replied: "I feel like this would be a lot like Mel's wedding night, a lot of anticipation...not much promise or delivery".

Announcing her departure to the audience, Tyra bellowed: "Mel B is out".

Without saying a word, the 42-year-old starlet threw a cup of water over the dad-of-one and drenched his white shirt.

As we've seen on The X Factor, the twosome's relationship certainly isn't without drama, and all the friction boiled over once again on the American version of Britain's Got Talent after Simon brought up the former Spice Girl's fractured marriage to Stephen Belafonte.

Fans speculated that the shocking moment was staged, however, AGT's official Twitter account tweeted, "This is live TV, you guys".

During Tuesday night's live quarter-final, Simon and Mel were left unimpressed by an escape artist failing to escape from a box suspended in mid-air.
