Danity Kane announced last week that they were breaking up (again) after a physical dispute between members Aubrey O'Day and Dawn Richards.

O'Day released a statement on their website detailing the reason for the breakup of Danity Kane as ongoing issues between band members and escalating tension that led to last week's encounter.

O'Day said,

"During a recent group meeting, a business conversation took a turn for the worst when my group member (Dawn Richards) 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."

She continued, "I cannot condone or excuse any form of physical violence, particularly at the hands of someone I considered family. Disagreements happen. But a war of words and ideas should never end in physical aggression."

Now, former Danity Kane member Dawn Richards is telling her side of the story through Facebook.

Part of her statement reads, "I am sorry to everyone that this news has to come out. You're worth more. Certain choices were made that I am not proud of. However, I will not be disrespected. Once again, I am sorry to the fans as this should have been handled privately not publicly."

She continues, "I am not justifying my actions. I am saying this was all done before any changes or conversations could even be had."

Danity Kane has been full of drama from the beginning. They broke up the first time in 2009 following some tension and Diddy removing members Aubrey O'Day and Wanita "D. Woods" Woodgett from the group. Then they reunited in 2013, but lost member Aundrea Fimbres in early 2014 because she wanted to start a family.

Will Danity Kane make another come back or are they ready for the fork?
