The American pop industry is rocked by sensational allegations of allegedly pushing a lead singer of famous Pussycat Dolls music group into prostitution.
This was after Kaya Jones, who left the band before they became famous, alleged that group were made to “sleep with whoever they say.”
In a series of tweets Jones wrote, “My truth.I wasn’t in a girl group. I was in a prostitution ring.Oh & we happened to sing & be famous. While everyone who owned us made the $. How bad was it? people ask-bad enough that I walked away from my dreams,bandmates&a 13 million dollar record deal.We knew we were going to#1.
“To be apart of the team you must be a team player.Meaning sleep with whoever they say.If you dont they have nothing on you to leverage. Yes I said leverage. Meaning after they turn you out or get you hooked on drugs they use it against you.Correct.Victimizing the victim again. (sic)”
Pussycat Dolls, led by Nicole Scherzinger, issued a statement denying the allegations and offered support to Jones.
“To liken our professional roles in The Pussycat Dolls to a prostitution ring not only undermines everything we worked hard to achieve for all those years but also takes the spotlight off the millions of victims who are speaking up and being heard loud and clear around the world,” BBC quoted the statement.
Pussycat Dolls was founded by Robin Antin in 1995 burlesque dance troupe. Antin too rubbished Jones’ allegations calling them “disgusting, ridiculous lies” and claimed the singer was “clearly looking for her 15 minutes.”
Jones responded by saying, “Doing this to gain 15 mins says the abuser. I went platinum this year. Did you? No. 10 years dated group but your helping my career hahaha. (sic)”
