Geri Halliwell's boyfriend has asked her to move to Los Angeles or risk losing him.
Geri, 35, doesn't want her romance with dancer Ivan 'Flipz' Velez to end and is considering making the US her permanent home.
A source close to the couple said: "Ivan has given her an ultimatum. He really likes Geri and the time they share together, but wants to be with her more. He's asked her to move out to Los Angeles to be with him. He said it's either that or they call it a day."
Geri previously rented a house in California in 2005, but returned to the UK after a year and settled in London.
She has since given birth to daughter, Bluebell, two, who she wants to educate in the UK.
A friend told Britain's Closer magazine: "Geri was shocked at first. But she really likes Ivan, and if it means she needs to spend more time out there, then she'll go. But she wants Bluebell to go to a top British school. If she did move to the states, she'd only go until Bluebell was old enough to go to school in the UK."
