With the music world mourning the loss of Danity Kane again, attention for many is turning to the cause of their latest break-up.
Members Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex have offered their explanation; however, moments ago Dawn Richard (who formed the focus of their open letter), broke her silence.
Her words below…
Richard’s reaction to the drama was rolled out via Twitter and TMZ.
The latter reports:
Danity Kane‘s last straw was an ambush … 2 girls against the third.
Sources connected with the group tell TMZ … Dawn Richard went nuclear when she found out Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex were meeting behind her back … recording tracks without her and discussing business matters involving the group.
We’re told the cover was blown Monday … when Dawn showed up to the studio and interrupted a private session with Shannon and Aubrey. That’s what set things off and caused the fight, that ended with Dawn punching Aubrey.
Dawn tells us the stories about her being a brute are “exaggerated lies and false accusations.”
While on Twitter, after retweeting the article above, the singer interestingly revealed that she had still been conversing with her now ex-bandmates about proceeding with the releasing completed album when the story hit:
And even still I Was working with both teams to still release the album when this story was leaked without anyone being consulted.

She would go on to add sombrely…
Extremely sorry to the fans. You don’t deserve this. You’re worth more. — Dawn Richard / NEON (@DawnRichard) August 8, 2014
Whichever way it’s diced or sliced, this is all sorts of sad. To think the album was done and three videos were set to be shot. Again, tragic.
Hopefully, by some force of nature, the ladies at least release the album for the fans. At this point, it almost feels owed. Logistically, as an independent act, it wouldn’t be (that) difficult either.
