Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex of Danity Kane Form New Group Dumblonde
O'Day announced the news on Twitter and Instagram, posting a message and photo to announce their union. "Today begins a new chapter. Thank you for always standing by us. This new project is for u," she wrote.
The announcement comes several months after Danity Kane had a brawl in the studio. Apparently Richard and O'Day were involved in a physical altercation with the latter pressing charges on the Blackheart creator.
O'Day released a statement shortly after the group disbanded. "During a recent group meeting, a business conversation took a turn for the worst, when my group member punched me in the back of my head while I was speaking to another associate," she wrote in a statement. "Disagreements happen but a war of words and ideas should never end in physical aggression."
Richard released a statement of her own about the incident. "I am sorry to everyone that this news has to come out," she wrote. "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."
According to TMZ, dumblonde will be going the EDM route and veer from the R&B and pop route the ladies traveled down previously.
If you're keeping track, Richard just released her new solo album, Blackheart, and Danity Kane member Aundrea Fimbres quit showbiz to raise a family, which leaves only one final question. What on earth is popping with D. Woods?
