Danity Kane’s comeback album was one of the most anticipated projects last year, but their road to glory turned into an embarrassing train wreck when Dawn Richard attacked Aubrey O’Day and the group subsequently broke up before the release of the album. Since then, the ladies have pointed fingers at each other about why the group split, but now Richard is opening up about the infamous fight and the reason for the breakup.
Richard discussed the doomed trio during a recent interview with “The Breakfast Club” and she explained that Danity Kane’s reunion was doomed from the start without all of its original five members
“The problem with Danity Kane is everybody wanted to play everybody’s role, and when you’re in a group like that, that can’t survive — everybody can’t be Kobe [Bryant] on the team,” she said. “A quarterback cannot decide tomorrow to say ‘I’m gonna be a wide receiver.’ He might be a really great runner, but when it’s time to get this championship ring, everybody has to play a part.”
Richard then spoke about her beef with O’Day and Shannon Bex and explained that the final straw came when the two ladies accused her of monopolizing the vocals on their album. Richard says that Bex and O’Day then tried to remove her vocals behind her back.
“They told me we had the studio the next day, and they went in the day before,” she shared. “I walked in on them doing it, and I tried to confront them … I blacked out … I couldn’t believe it. It’s my fault, their fault, everybody.
“There is no excuse for my behavior … but everybody gets pushed to a limit. When something is poison, and you go into the studio and people are literally going behind your back and lying to you and taking your vocals and doing things that are shady, that’s foul.”
And that’s not all that Richard had to say on the subject. Read the rest of her comments after the cut.
