Former Pussycat Dolls member says group was like 'a prostitution ring'

Kaya Jones Former Pussycat Dolls member says group was like 'a prostitution ring'

While the Harvey Weinstein scandal was rocking Hollywood last week, a former Pussycat Doll, Kaya Jones, who was in the group from 2003 to 2005, claimed she had to "sleep with whoever they say" and that they were "all abused".

She claimed that the girl group operated as a "prostitution ring", with the members forced into sex with entertainment executives.

Kaya Jones, who joined the group in 2003 before leaving in 2006, posted a series of Tweets in which she says they were made to sleep with people, and just "happened to sing and be famous". Kaya Jones said they had what she called a "den mother" who made sure the girls did everything ordered.

"How bad was it?". We knew we were going to #1'. She also called out to someone called the "den mother" of the group without taking any names and asked her to confess as to why one of her group members committed suicide. "Tell the public how you mentally broke us", Jones said.

While she didn't point the finger at anyone in particular, people deducted that Kaya was talking about Simone Battle, the G.R.L. singer who took her own life in 2014.

'Yes I said leverage. Meaning after they turn you out of get you hooked on drugs they use it against you. Correct. Victimizing the victim again, ' she continued.

Meanwhile, neither a rep for the Pussycat Dolls nor Nicole Scherzinger has commented on Jones' allegations. She went on saying that they were all abused and that no one can see her scars. At least real war is honest. Because we are all abused! "I personally have been warned if I tell I will... you know end up dead or no more career", she wrote. "Sorry but I hard to burst the bubble". We as Pussycat Dolls were paid $500 a week. Robin Antin, the founder of the dance ensemble, denied Jones' claims and alleged that Jones was not even an official member of the group.

Robin has said that Kaya's accusations are "disgusting, ridiculous lies, and she told The Blast that she is "clearly looking for her 15 minutes".

The choreographer and entrepreneur also founded girl group G.R.L. There has been no confirmation that Jones was speaking about Battle.
