The Pussycat Dolls are getting the claws out!
In case you hadn’t heard, the girl group is at the center of controversy after former member Kaya Jones likened them to a “prostitution ring” and said the girls were forced to “sleep with whoever they say.”
In an official statement released Wednesday, the Dolls said the existence of “false allegations” like these “takes the spotlight off” the real victims.
They also suggested Kaya “get the help she needs.” Subtle.
See their whole statement (below):
“The Pussycat Dolls has always and will always stand for female empowerment and sisterhood. We stand in solidarity with all women who have bravely spoken publicly of their horrific experiences of abuse, harassment and exploitation. However, we cannot stand behind false allegations towards other group members partaking in activities that simply did not take place.
To liken our professional roles in The Pussycat Dolls to a prostitution ring not only undermines everything we worked hard to achieve for all those years but also takes the spotlight off the millions of victims who are speaking up and being heard loud and clear around the world. While we were not aware of Kaya’s experiences that allegedly took place during her short time working with us, before the group signed a recording contract, we can firmly testify that we were not privy to any misconduct taking place around us. If Kaya experienced something we are unaware of then we fully encourage her to get the help she needs and are here to support her.
Since its inception, The Pussycat Dolls and founder Robin Antin have supported and empowered women from all walks of life to flourish in their careers. Should any member or associate allude to any form of abuse or harassment whatsoever, it will be taken very seriously and investigated.
We truly wish Kaya the best and hope she gets the help she deserves.”
Mayyyyybe they’re simply being thoughful… But between the lines it seems to us like they’re implying she cray.
