Danity Kane splits after 12-month reunion when Richard and O'Day have a violent confrontation in studio.


Danity Kane is done.

TMZ learned the group split after a recording session turned violent. The site also broke the news of Dawn Richard's sucker punching Aubrey O'Day on Monday. Richard allegedly swung at O'Day with a closed fist and sparking a police investigation once Aubrey filed a report.


P. Diddy put the group together on MTV's reality show Making the Band 3 with Richard, O'Day, Shannon Bex, Wanita "D. Woods" Woodget, and Aundrea Fimbres. Through the history of the band, there's been disagreement and dissolution.

Like when O'Day and Woods left in 2006-2007 and the eventual band ending in 2009. And when the group reunited last year, Woods didn't return, and then Fimbres quickly dropped out. However the latter left due to engagement and not disagreement.

The remaining three members of Danity Kane started out this summer touring, promoting their almost completed album, but the likelihood of competition and release is probably low now.


Bex and O'Day put more information on the official Danity Kane blog. Aubrey explained the problems within the group and how the members owe the fans "the unfiltered truth," which is a play on their current record and tour title, No Filter.

O'Day describes the meeting and the physical attack. "A business conversation took a turn for the worst when my group member punched me in the back of my head while I was speaking to another associate."

Without naming Richard directly, she concluded that, "This is the same information I provided to the police, and witnesses also corroborated this account of the incident."

As for the violence, Shannon backs up Aubrey. "I did not witness a shouting match, a cat fight or a brawl. I witnessed a single direct punch."


Aubrey can't see how the attack happened. "I cannot condone or excuse any form of physical violence, particularly at the hands of someone I considered family. Disagreements happen.  But a war of words and ideas should never end in physical aggression."

"It breaks my heart that this violence is followed by no sign of remorse. For the past year, I watched small lies turn into bigger lies. Those bigger lies turned into verbal abuse. Now the verbal abuse has deteriorated into a physical assault."

Without specifically referencing Richard, O'Day opens up on why she came back to Danity Kane. "It was my goal to prove that with enough understanding the issues behind the scenes could be resolved, and we could continue to create content for one of the most inspiring fan bases I have ever witnessed."


Also admitting "that I put what I knew was right second to what I knew I could handle for the sake of the big-picture success this incredibly talented group of women could have achieved together."

And as a victim of prior abuse, Aubrey feels "an ethical and moral line has been crossed," and she can't compromise safety over success. "I watched her [Dawn] behavior get darker and darker.  And, I fear it will only get worse."

Some moments can't be taken back, either. "Ultimately, as a woman who has spent her entire career standing up for the underdog and right over wrong, I can no longer pretend that she is willing to do what it takes to protect the power of the Danity Kane name."


Bex, supposedly the attempted mediator in the mêlée, seemed very sad for everyone supporting the band. "So many lives have been affected by this chain of events." Anyone who watched the reality show would agree with what she considers her role.

"I tried to keep my opinions to myself and worked behind the scenes to balance our strong personalities for the good of the Danity Kane name." Shannon was always the calm among the chaos. And looking at her twitter, there’s evidence of disagreement with cryptic messages, just like bandmate Aubrey.

She also felt "my expectations were set too high" for success. The sacrifices weren't worth the loss of time with her husband, even if she did enjoy the connection with Aubrey, who "graciously opened her home to me throughout this process."

The lack of enjoyment comes from an incomplete project with no true goal accomplished.


Bex felt as she had to "must walk away feeling used and manipulated." And O'Day's feelings aren't much happier, saying, "Sadness does not even remotely begin to describe what I feel right now."

And in a joint statement, the two open up on how they've tried to stay positive, to give the fans a truly good album and reunion. "We spent the first half of the year struggling to convince ourselves that the red flags we witnessed were somehow explainable. " Even understanding the fan frustration since Danity Kane "were at the finish line."

Implying that a "girl group" can be successful, Shannon and Aubrey feel "true history will be made" when "talented women can come together to create something bigger than themselves."




Dawn openly apologized on her twitter in a series of tweets without explaining too much on what happened. And former member Fimbres offers a bit of skepticism on what's being put out there, almost backing Richard. But it’s easy to say that Danity Kane’s reached a final breaking point...for now.
