Former Pussycat Doll Claims Pop Group Was ‘Prostitution Ring’

Kaya Jones, once affiliated with the fiery ’00s girl pop band The Pussycat Dolls, has made some incendiary claims about the hitmakers in a series of bombshell tweets. 

Jones slammed the “Don’t Cha” band led by Nicole Scherzinger as a “prostitution ring.”

Jones goes in further, alleging that whoever controlled the group pimped the girls out.

After an outpouring of sympathy, Jones said more names may come out.

Jones is one of many women speaking out about the entertainment industry following the bombshell revelations that disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is a serial sexual predator.

Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Rose McGowan are among his long list of accusers.

This story may be a bit more complicated. Kaya says she left The Pussycat Dolls before “Don’t Cha” made them a pop sensation in 2005.

Founder Robin Antin has since slammed Jones’ account in an interview with The Blast, alleging Jones was never officially inducted as a member.

Robin Antin tells The Blast she was shocked when she heard Kaya Jones’ allegations, but they are nothing more than “disgusting, ridiculous lies,” and Jones is “clearly looking for her 15 minutes.”

Antin is suprised Jones is even talking on behalf of The Pussycat Dolls, because she says Jones was actually just on a trial and never an official member of the group. She says Jones was just one of the many girls that auditioned for the group over the years, but ended up washing out and never became a permanent fixture.

Sources close to The Pussycat Dolls tell us the group’s lawyer has been contacted and is drafting a legal letter to send to Jones warning her to stop spreading lies and damaging the brand, or face the legal consequences.

Antin also took umbrage at Jones intimating she was the “den mother from hell” and that she drove Simone Battle of her other girl group G.R.L. to suicide in 2014. 

The Blast wrote that “Antin is especially incensed that Jones would bring up former G.R.L. member Simone Battle‘s suicide, saying it’s not just ‘nasty,’ but it’s unfathomable and disrespectful to everyone who works towards suicide prevention and awareness.”

“Antin says bringing up a suicide in such a brazen way not only scars the family, but the millions of people that loved and cared for Simone.”

This one is getting ugly. The other dolls, like Nicole Scherzinger, have yet to weigh in.
