Dawn Richard made a stop this morning (Jan 20) at Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, where she revealed what really went down in the scuffle she had with former Danity Kane group mate Aubrey O’Day in the studio, according to TMZ.
Richard claims that O’Day and Shannon Bex were accusing her of monopolizing off their album’s vocals. And when she discovered they tried to re-arrange some tracks behind her back, she was infuriated.
“When something is poison, and you go into the studio and people are literally going behind your back and lying to you and taking your vocals and doing things that are shady, that’s foul,” she said. “There is no excuse for my behavior…but everybody gets pushed to a limit.”
“I walked in on them doing it, and I tried to confront them…I blacked out…I couldn’t believe it. It’s my fault, their fault, everybody,” she professed.
However, Richard does admit that Danity Kane was swimming in dangerous waters from the moment the group made a comeback. She stated that pride was one of the major issues for the group’s downfall.
“The problem with Danity Kane is everybody wanted to play everybody’s role, and when you’re in a group like that, that can’t survive — everybody can’t be Kobe [Bryant] on the team,” she said.
But, the ‘Billie Jean’ singer does profess she grieves the legacy Danity Kane has left behind: “Before all of this, we were just known as that girl group with that really dope song — that was positive! Now we’re a joke: ‘Oh, you punched that girl.’ ‘Oh, that TMZ story.’ That wasn’t what we built.”
