Danity Kane Reunion in the Works, Diddy Won’t Play a Part [Video]
Members of the girl group Danity Kane, which was created by Diddy and subsequently dismantled by him, were videotaped having lunch together at the Grove in Los Angeles on Monday (May 13). It wasn’t about catching up over eats, either! Rumors are swirling that they’re moving forward on a reunion and that they are doing so without their onetime Svengali.
TMZ cameras caught four original members of DK — Aubrey O’Day, Shannon Bex, Dawn Richard and Aundrea Fimbres — meeting up with a new manager to discuss the reunion. Yes, they all looked hot, too.
“We don’t try to do anything,” they snapped at the reporter’s question about the girls “trying to make things work.” Point taken.
When asked if Diddy would play a part in resurrecting the project, the lovelies let out some laughs and coyly asked, “Who’s that?” Zing!
Sources say that the reunion is definitely happening, with a record and a tour on the docket.
Diddy assembled the group in 2005, during ‘Making the Band 3′ and signed them to Bad Boy Records. They had success with their self-titled, 2006-released debut and the follow-up, 2008’s ‘Welcome to the Dollhouse.’
The hip-hop mogul then axed all of the members save for Richard in 2009, after some drama. So there must be some bad blood, since it’s been said that the girls felt they were being financially cheated by the rapper and mogul.
Member Wanita “D Woods” Woodgett was not seen here.
It is not known if Diddy or the girls own the name “Danity Kane,” but the ladies plan to make use of the brand anyway.
If Diddy is indeed the rightful, legal owner — and something tells us he may very well be — expect this situation to end up in front of a judge.
