Aubrey O’Day spoke out about what happened between her and Dawn Richard during a recent Danity Kane meeting, and Dawn has now responded. Dawn was forced to post a message to her fans on Facebook after claiming to have been locked out of the DK social media accounts. This happened after Dawn allegedly punched Aubrey in the back of the head.
“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.”
Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex posted their own statement about why Danity Kane is no more (again), blaming Dawn for the unsuccessful reunion of the girl group. The girls posted a TwitDoc as a unified team, though they both gave separate statements in addition to a joint statement. They apologized to their fans countless times, and tried to explain that things will never be the same because of the physical violence that occurred during their last meeting. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Aubrey revealed that she got punched by Dawn while talking to someone else. The ladies announced their break-up on Twitter.
Aubrey and Shannon seem to share the sentiment that what happened to Danity Kane isn’t fair. The fans aren’t the only ones hurt by their break-up, and the women say that they understand that.
Aubrey O’Day may or may not respond to Dawn’s latest comments. Many people are surprised that Dawn feels as though she has been disrespected, seeing as she is the one who punched Aubrey, but that’s the statement she chose to make.
It seems very clear, at this point anyway, that Aubrey, Shannon, and Dawn will not be working together in the future. There has been no word on whether or not the girls will release any of the other music that they recorded together while trying to put together a comeback album.
