Sean Combs' pop band Danity Kane is no more, according to DAWN RICHARD - one of the only two remaining members. The group, put together by Combs for his reality TV series Making The Band, lost two singers, Aubrey ODay and D. Woods, in October (08) after they were fired by the hip-hop mogul.
Richard, who remains along with Aundrea Fimbres, was stunned when Shannon Bex followed them out of the door by quiting the group last year (08).
The star claims the first she knew of Bex's decision to quit was when she failed to turn up to filming on the show's second season.
She says, "I thought we were all going to come back. I just know I got off the plane and found out I was the only one there and Drea came the next day. Puff (Combs) invited all the girls to come back on this season and they chose not to. Only two of us showed up."
And Richard now claims the band is definitely over - leaving the final two remaining members to launch their own act.
She tells, "As of right now, (Danity Kane doesn't exist). It's devastating for me.
"You'll see me and Drea (Fimbres) try and pick up the pieces on our own - pieces that we didn't even make. We didn't even break it and we're trying to sweep it up ourselves. It changes (our situation) completely. We're sitting here trying to make sense of it now. It's hard. We're put in this position that we didn't ask to be in and we're being told to fix it."
The second season of Making the Band will air in America on 12 February (09).
