Richard Denies Solo Career Caused Danity Kane Split

DANITY KANE singer DAWN RICHARD has brushed off reports her alleged attempts to break out as a solo star caused the pop group to split.
The group, put together by rap mogul Sean 'Diddy' Combs for his reality TV series Making The Band, was reportedly left with only two remaining members after singers Shannon Bex, Aubrey O'Day and D. Woods parted ways last month (Oct08).
Reports have swirled of Combs' plans for a solo stint for 23-year-old Richard, which allegedly added to tensions in the former five-piece.
But Richards insists it was her former bandmates who caused the rift.
She says, "The reality is that we were in a group and everyone got to do the individual. I was pro Danity Kane. Aubrey went to Broadway, D. Woods had her own side hustle: a group. Everyone had their own opportunity to do things and no one ever had anything to say about it, it was totally fine.
"It's interesting that Puff (Combs) just had me on a couple of references (song parts) and my name is in it like I did something wrong. It's interesting how tables turn. All of a sudden when someone has a belief in me, people say I'm doing something side."

I think that Harve Pierre going around telling the ladies that Dawn was going solo was what atarted all the mistrust in the group. Diddy lost a Platnum selling group and has shot himself in the behind. He has to be in everyone's videos and promote himself, he thinks to highly of himself. Management at Badboy Sucks they left us hanging to see if there was going to be a second alblum and a lot of us were unsure what was going on.Dawn showed no emotion when the group broke up they should have ALL WALKED OUT TOGETHER...
