Aubrey O’Day announced on Friday that her band, Danity Kane, is no longer. The girl group, created by Diddy on the show Making the Band back in 2005, split over what was reported to be a physical altercation.
In a statement on Danity Kane’s website, Aubrey O’Day said,
“During a recent group meeting, a business conversation took a turn for the worst when my group member 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,”
She continued, “This is the same information I provided to the police, and witnesses also corroborated this account of the incident.”
Aubrey O’Day then outlined exactly how things have escalated over the past year, “It breaks my heart that this violence is followed by no sign of remorse. For the past year, I watched small lies turn into bigger lies. Those bigger lies turned into verbal abuse. Now the verbal abuse has deteriorated into a physical assault.”
Things have’t always been peachy for the band. A source close to Aubrey O’Day and her bandmates says the girls were “always at odds,” and “they couldn’t agree on anything.”
Aubrey O’Day and Wanita “D. Woods” Woodgett were removed from the group in 2008 by Diddy. The remaining members, including Aundrea Fimbres, disbanded the following year.
Aubrey O’Day, Shannon Bex, Dawn Richard and Aundrea Fimbres reunited last summer. However, it wasn’t to last, as Fimbres tearfully left in May 2014 to start a family.
Aubrey O’Day didn’t name her attacker in the statement, but it was reportedly bandmate Dawn Richard. Aubrey O’Day said of her relationship with Richard that she tried “tirelessly to sympathize with the behavior,” but “watched her behavior get darker and darker.” Aubrey O’Day said that she can no longer pretend that the person (Richard) is willing “to do what it takes to protect the power of the Danity Kane name.”
Well, it sounds like Danity Kane is down for good, from what Aubrey O’Day has stated. What do you think? Have things gone beyond hope or does Danity Kane have another reunion in them?
