A spokesperson for SEAN COMBS has denied claims his pop girl group DANITY KANE is on the verge of a split to make way for the solo career of one of its members.
Combs has reportedly planned the break-out of 23-year-old Dawn Richard, causing tensions in the five-girl group.
A posting on a popular music website claims the hip-hop mogul “has been flying Dawn out from Baltimore to him for private meetings. And these meetings are preparing her to be the breakout star in a solo career. Apparently, Diddy believes she’s the most talented of the group, and the girls are pissy because they disagree.”
But Combs’ Atlantic Records spokeswoman Cara Donatto has denied the rumours, insisting the girls “absolutely” get along.
She says: “At no point was Dawn flown anywhere to record solo or meet alone with Diddy. The girls are still very much together. They’re going out to the (MTV) Video Music Awards together… and they’re promoting their album Welcome to the Dollhouse and working on their third.”
Great to hear all is supposedly well ‘in-house’, but a third album already? I mean that has to be some kind of joke, right? ‘Making The Band’ aside, the promotion for their current effort ‘Welcome To The Dollhouse’ has been far from satisfactory – lengthy gaps between singles…poor single choice(s) (I vote ‘no’ for ‘Bad Girl’) etc. Whoever is running the show in their camp needs to get it together ASAP, as this is quickly descending into one shambles of a situation. SMH…
