With Danity Kane fans still mourning the group’s second split, member Dawn Richard is offering further insight into the events that lead up to the break-up — from her standpoint.
The singer’s statement comes on the heels of the joint letter penned by ex-bandmates Shannon Bex and Aubrey O’Day – the latter of which revealed that she was punched in the head by Richard during a heated studio session.
In any case, Dawn’s words below…
Via Dawn Richard:
Dear Danity Kane fans,
I am sorry to everyone that this news has to come out. You’re worth more. Certain choices were made that I am not proud of. However, I will not be disrespected. Once again, I am sorry to the fans as this should have been handled privately not publicly. I continued to work with both parties to try to release the album even when the original story was leaked without anyone being consulted. I have been unable to release my statement via Danity Kane social media because my access to all Danity Kane social media pages has been blocked by DK members. This forces me to make my statement on my personal page. This could have all been handled privately; however, certain parties chose to make this public before it could be rectified. I am not justifying my actions. I am saying this was all done before any changes or conversations could even be had.
