Speaking about her relationship with the late "Faith" singer, Geri told News.com.au: “I believe in times of trouble and difficult times, we find out two things: What we’re made of, and who our friends are.
"My relationship with George started out as a fan, but every time I had a little bit of difficulty he stepped up for me. When I left the Spice Girls, I went to live with him. I stayed for a long time.
"Also when I had my first child, I went to live with him. He was really sweet and kind to me."
She added: “I’d always go around his house and play songs I was writing, asking what he’d think. Sometimes he’d tell me it was good, and sometimes he’d tell me ‘Ooh, that needs work".
"He’d always tell me to leave space for evolution as an artist. I really admired him in so many ways."
