Pussycat Doll's founder slams 'prostitution ring' claims

The founder of the Pussycat Dolls has slammed comments made by a former member likening the girl group to a prostitution ring.

Former band member Kaya Jones made the damning accusations on Twitter writing: “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 $.”

But now Robin Antin, the woman who founded the group, has told The Blast that Kaya’s comments are “disgusting, ridiculous lies”.

“Kaya is clearly looking for her 15 minutes (of fame)”, Robin said.

Kata shocked fans with her series of Tweet, also writing that being in the group was “so bad” it forced her to “walk away from my dreams”.

Kaya then proceeded to mention a “den mother” of the group who “mentally broke” them and even speaks of one of the girls in her girl groups committing suicide.



Some on social media speculated that Kaya may have been talking about Robin Antin who was the manager of The Pussycat Dolls and another girl group G.R.L.

A member of G.R.L., Simone Battle, was found dead at her home in 2014 and it was ruled as a suicide.

Kaya has not confirmed she was talking about either of the two women.

Kaya went on to say that to be part of the Pussycat Dolls she had to “sleep with whoever they say”.





On Monday, the ex-member called upon the members who stayed in the group to speak out.




She also hit back at those who claimed she was making it up saying “truths are usually hard to swallow. Sorry but I hard to burst the bubble”.



Kaya did praise the "people with good hearts in the business" but said "the scum has to go".
