Former Sugababes Member Sues For Band Name!

This could get ugly!

Former and founding Sugababes member Keisha Buchanan is suing for the rights to the band name that she helped form back in 1998.

She's demanding that the current 3 remaining members of the band, Heidi Range, Amelle Berrabah and Jade Ewen, call themselves something else or pay Keisha a large lump sum up which could be millions of pounds!

An insider reveals:

"This is a landmark case and will send shockwaves through the industry. The Sugababes are one of the most successful girl bands of all time, but if they are forced to change their name it would be absolutely disastrous for them."

Keisha left the band back in September citing "a breakdown in communication and lack of trust," but supposedly she was forced out by Heidi for constantly bullying Amelle.

The current Sugababes have consistently said in interviews that they are much happier without Keisha in the band — but they could be paying for it later!

    I'm waiting to see Keisha's tweets about this - but if it is true then YOU GO GIRL!!!

    that makes no sense…..and is a contradiction anyway

    Pay up bitches.

    RIHANNA???????
    ANYWAYS I LOVE HOW EVERYONE TRYS TO DRESS "DIFFERENT" OR "UNIQUE" EVER SINCE QUEEN GAGA CAME ALONG.

    This chick is gonna get a legal smackdown for this. Other disgruntled ex-band members have done the same thing and failed. Most notably was Roger Waters trying to sue ex-band mates for continuing to record and tour as Pink Floyd. He failed in court, and she will, too.

    No Sugababes without Keisha. Just sayin'



  11. 11

    put it this way, it was siobhan and mutya (fellow originals) who started the band and invited keisha to join, it was siobhan who came up with the name (modifying one suggested by the label) it was siobhan that was bullied out of the band and to bullimia by keisha, heidi has been there since the second out of 7 albums (the first wasnt a hit and they got dropped) and keisha bullied her as soon as she joined, keisha also bullied amelle when she joined which is why heidi and amelle quit the band but the label asked THEM to carry on without keisha because they were sick of her bullshit.
    everybody who has met them says what a stuck up bitch keisha is and you can actually see the new line-up are really happy together….
    keisha is a stupid bitch looking for a payout because she knows that while she can sing shes a known bitch and unlikeable so her solo career is unlikely to take off… SUGABABES 4 EVA!!!
    p.s follow me on t w i t t e r my names FUTURESTARdelux thanks ^_^ x

    Re: LadyGagaQueenOfMusic – Unique? That's a dress that could be found anywhere on the high street!



  13. 13

    She is right though. They are not the sugababes anymore as none of the original band members are in it anymore. I hope she wins. They are crap now anyway



  14. 14

    Honestly, who really gives a shit?



  15. 15

    she can do one. if she wasnt such a bitch then this wouldnt have happened. Keisha and MUTya bullied heidi for years then she couldnt take it when Amelle joined and she wasnt in the power seat. Piss off love and stick your head in a cave where it belongs. You might have a nice voice but with an attitude like that you just dont deserve success.



  16. 16

    One of the most successful girl bands of all time? Never heard of them.



  17. 17

    Keisha clearly is proving that she's just as big of a bitch as everyone thought she was. Why does she need the name? Isn't she supposed to go solo? Move on Keisha and "finally worry about me" and forget about the other girls. Sugababes is still on top without her so if this does go to court I doubt she'll win.



  18. 18

    it may come back to bite her, people might not buy her solo album if shes bitchy to the current sugababes lineup



  19. 19

    Seriously… she thinks she's the voice of the babes, yet she was so easily replaced and the group is still on the top 10. I love Amelle, Heidi and Jade. Keisha was good and all, but she's still replaceable.



  20. 20

    she should aswell!!! She was the only one who could sing and the only original member aswell, what are they now? They might aswell be a tribute band!



  21. 21

    the new sugababes line up might have the same name, and they can keep it, and sure they are scoring top 10 singles, but their music is not the same and lacks any meaning unlike their older stuff. now they all are on the same vocal scale and no diversity. just another Saturdays. what a pity. they used to be so different. such a shame keisha had to be a bully.

    Re: stargate121 – *sings* don't wanna be an American idiot…..



  23. 23

    She's right. Didn't like them so much when Matya left, now I don't like them at all.



  24. 24

    I think it's fine that they keep the name. Sugababes is a brand. Not a band. The sound might have evolved over time… but just look at the difference between their first album and their second. They changed their style and replaced a member. Heidi is an original Sugababe as far as I'm concerned.

    Re: welshboi :P – you got it wrong. Keshia and mutya started the band. You got them mixed up



  26. 26

    Keisha has kept her mouth shut about the situation and hasn't put any of the other girls under the bus. she even wished them well. Now several months later, the other girls want to come out in interviews and dog on keisha because their album is coming out in march. I hope keisha wins this case. karma is a bitch.



  27. 27

    Ive asked Keisha to cover "the boy is mine" by brandy and monica, with Mutya and she said she and mutya used to sing it all the time. I think i would be huge for them to do it for fun.— MOBYASHI



  28. 28

    Good on her if it's true



  29. 29

    The new Sugababes is crap. They can't sing, and their 2 singles didn't do too well. And now they look like all the other girl bands, like glorified strippers. I hope Keisha wins.



  30. 30

    HAHA - the old members should be the "new" Sugababes! :D That would be coooool!

    Re: LadyGagaQueenOfMusic

    That's a dress by Australian designer Josh Goot, it's pretty consistent with his designs, nothing to do with Lady Gaga.



  32. 32

    Classes bullying cow. Move on. Do your own thing. Your rep is already tarnished with the whole thing enough already.



  33. 33

    GOOD!
    It's not Sugababes without any of the original members!
