Dawn Richard Posts Open Letter On Danity Kane Break Up
There have been a lot of controversies surrounding the breakup of Danity particular those blaming Dawn Richard and Aubrey O’Day who were allegedly the cause of the group’s split.
But last Saturday, August 9, Richard posted a letter on her personal Facebook page to explain her side regarding the issue.
However, Richard didn’t discussed about the alleged fight between her and O’Day in the studio where she punched her head. The police were reportedly called after this incident.
Here’s her open letter:
“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.”
O’Day and DK member Shannon Bex previously posted a farewell letter to their fans on the group’s Twitter page, where they both expressed their regret for the group’s breakup.
“My desire is to genuinely apologize to everyone who has poured their time, heart and energy into us. So many lives have been affected by this chain of events,” Bex wrote.
This isn’t the first time the group separated because in 2009, they called it quits after they released their second album, ‘Welcome to the Dollhouse.’
