Sugababes star Heidi Range has brushed off former member Mutya Buena's attempts to claim ownership of the band's name, insisting it is record label bosses who own the title.
Buena, a founding member of the British girl group, quit the band in 2005. The last remaining founder, Keisha Buchanan, was booted out last year (09), with former Eurovision singer Jade Ewen taking her place.
Now, Buena has applied to the European Trademarks Authority for permission to own the Sugababes name - as no original members of the group remain.
Her request has been registered, but not approved, according to her legal team.
But current Sugababes star Range, who joined the band in 2001, is adamant Buena's legal challenge will not be successful.
She tells BBC Newsbeat, "Our record company own the name Sugababes. So there's no conversations about who owns the name.
"I signed to Universal Records eight and a half years ago with Mutya and Keisha as the Sugababes, so we've still got the name.
"I don't know whether it's just the press kicking up a bit of a fuss but nothing that we're aware of."
Before Buchanan was axed from the line-up, the band underwent several changes over the years. Range was drafted in to replace Siobhan Donaghy and when Buena left, she was replaced by Amelle Berrabah.
