That was fast. After recently announcing reunion plans, Danity Kane is already calling it quits. The group members have decided to go their separate ways after a recording session turned violent.
TMZ first reported that Aubrey O’Day got sucker punched by Dawn Richard on Monday. Aubrey took to Twitter moments ago to comment on the incident and breakup, writing:
“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. 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 I considered family. Disagreements happen. But a war of words and ideas should never end in physical aggression.”
Shannon Bex adds:
“We know it must be devastating for our fans to have spent the last twelve months supporting our every move, and for that we cannot apologize enough. We share your frustration and anger! We spent a year living on each other’s couches, sacrificing any solo opportunity that came our way, finally finished our comeback album, and were days away from filming three music videos for you that would have played out as a short movie. We lived on calls, traded endless e-mails, and sat in meeting after meeting to bring together an amazing team of producers, agents, directors, and styling teams with no manager in place. We were at the finish line. We wish, more than anything, that our time, our team’s time, and most importantly your time as fans, was not taken for granted and carelessly disregarded. If this ending was in our control, please understand that we would have done everything in our power to move things forward.”
No word on if the album they were working on will still be released. HipHollywood had a chance to talk to the ladies last month, check out our video interview below.
