Members Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex announced the breakup and offered some details about the fight on the group’s website.
Both Aubrey and Shannon also left notes to their fans on the website.
Aubrey’s note read,
“I reach out to you with all of the honesty and sincerity in my heart. Without a doubt, you have always been my key source of inspiration. Everything I do in this industry is motivated by your commitment and passion. As you may know, there has been much speculation on the state of Danity Kane after a recent incident. In order to clear up any confusion, Shannon and I write to you today with nothing but pure intentions. Over the course of the past few days, we have heard countless recommendations on how we can “spin” this story or “make it go away,” as seems to be typical in our industry. We have never been — nor will we ever be — those types of women. This decision to stand by our principles may affect our future. Our pocketbooks. Our careers. And the list goes on and on. But, there is one thing it won’t affect —namely, your trust and faith in us. We owe you — our loving fans — the unfiltered truth.”
She went on to talk about events that led up the fight and how she had tried so hard to work out her differences with the other members over the years.
Shannon’s note read,
“My heart is heavy. It is all I can do to pull myself out of bed to face this task. But, I know it must be done. 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.”
Shannon also expressed sadness in the fact that the argument had gotten physical so quickly and that the group was not able to work out their differences.
The group announced their reunion less than a year ago and had planned to release a new album.
Are you surprised to see that the group has split up already?
