Former Pussycat Dolls member Kaya Jones says band was a ‘prostitution ring’

The Pussycat Dolls had a powerful impact on my sexuality as a young woman.

“Don’t Cha” is just hot. It’s hot fire, sexy confidence, and full of Nicole Scherzinger’s booty shaking, hip hopping, ab-defining body spotlighting the music video.

But with the recent Harvey Weinstein and Hollywood allegations circling the internet, it was no surprise that an ex-Pussycat Doll, Kaya Jones, has stepped out into the media and called the group out for being “a prostitution ring.”

The band member shared the news on Twitter first.

After coming out, Kaya replied to the circling media with a string of positive tweets and reigning support and encouragement from fans.

Drugs, prostitution, and mental coercion supposedly played a role in the Pussycat Dolls’ come up.

Robin Antin, who had managed the group in the early 2000’s, said that these were “disgusting, ridiculous lies,” and went so far as telling Kaya she was never a member of the group.

“I am shocked with the allegations Ms. Jones has stated and they are nothing more than disgusting, ridiculous lies. Ms. Jones was never an official member of the group, she was one of the many, many girls who auditioned for the Pussycat Dolls over the years.”

But Jones seems dedicated to her story. “How bad was it? People ask; Bad enough that I walked away from my dreams, bandmates & a 13 million dollar record deal. We knew we were going to #1.”

According to the Daily Mail, Jones even offered an example of a sexual assault after one of her shows.

“As just one example, a record executive asked me to get into his car and I accepted. We were in Las Vegas and we were all racing to get to the airport to take us back to LA after the show. It was just a 10-minute ride. I remember getting in the back seat of the limo with him and within seconds he jumped on me. I literally had to fight him off all the way to the airport.”

Jones has been put on blast by the media and the public alike, questioned whether or not she is looking for a fame outlet. She denies these claims, arguing,

“Why would I want to have a target on my back/claim to have been used & abused? Not exactly a good look.”

It’s been one hell of a week, folks. Hollywood’s sexual assault accusations have taken a snowball effect for the worst.

All we can do is be supportive, and hope this dark time surpasses our media soon.
