Danity Kane Officially Split Up (Again…)
That’s a wrap folks!
Just two days after our post on whether there was trouble in Danity Kane land, the group has confirmed that they are officially no more.
Members Aubrey and Shannon uploaded a lengthly post to fans discussing the reasons behind the spilt and how sorry they were to break the news.
Aubrey talks about the events leading up to the studio altercation and what really went down between her and Dawn,
”During a recent group meeting, a business conversation took a turn for the worst when my groupmember punched me in the back of my head while I was speaking to another associate. To be clear,she was not physically engaged or threatened prior to her attack on me. This is the same information I provided to the police, and witnesses also corroborated this account of the incident. I cannot condone or excuse any form of physical violence, particularly at the hands of someone Iconsidered family. Disagreements happen. But a war of words and ideas should never end in physical aggression.”
”Sadness does not even remotely begin to describe what I feel right now. Ultimately, as a woman who has spent her entire career standing up for the underdog and right over wrong, I can no longer pretend that she is willing to do what it takes toprotect the power of the Danity Kane name”
Shannon – who was always seen as the quiet member of the group added her opinion to the whole fiasco saying,
”There are many people besides myself that this impacts. Bottom line, it is not fair! I am not asking that you validate it being so. I am writing because you the fans and our loved ones deserve an honest and transparent explanation. My desire is to genuinely apologize to everyone who has poured their time, heart and energy into us. So many lives have been affected by this chain of events.”
”As for the actions that have brought us to this broken ending, I cannot speak for anyone or explain their internal struggles that prompted this heartbreaking sequence of events. All I know is what I have seen. I did not witness a shouting match, a cat fight or a brawl. I witnessed a single direct punch.”
It was believed that the girls had nearly completed their new studio album and that music videos were to be shot within a couple of weeks!
The five piece initially split in 2009 after Diddy fired both Aubrey and D. Woods on an episode of ‘Making the Band‘. Soon after Shannon quietly left the group off camera, whilst Aundrea was later fired by Diddy on the final season of the reality show.
Dawn later signed to Bad Boy Records as a member of Diddy-Dirty Money, whose biggest hit ‘Coming Home‘ was released in 2010. The trio later split in 2012…
It goes without saying that this is disappointing news to both the members of DK and their dedicated fan base. However looking back now maybe the writing was on the wall the moment they reunited as just a four piece and then later as three piece and also the lack of music release news and confirmation since their official reunion last summer?
The big question now is whether they will release (or leak) the music that they had long promised the public? That’s the least they can do in offering some form of apology to their fans…
Dawn Richard has yet to comment on the break up.
