Former Pussycat Dolls member Kaya Jones has compared her time in the group to being in a prostitution ring.

On Friday, Jones tweeted about her departure from the group: "I wasn't in a girl group".

"Oh and we happened to sing and be famous". While everyone who owned us made the $,' Jones wrote.

"How bad was it?".

Jones, 33, said the situation was bad enough to make her leave her dreams - and a $13 million record deal - behind. "We aren't kids anymore", she tweeted.

Jones also called out the "den mother from hell" to confess why one of the members committed suicide. "I personally have been warned if I tell I will.you know end up dead or no more career".


In the light of Harvey Weinstein sexual accusation scandal, Jones took to Twitter to speak out about the matter on Saturday, accusing the managers and executives of exploiting the members of the group that she joined as a teenager in 2003. However, there was no confirmation on this.It was quite a shocking revelation as she added that being a part of the group meant sleeping with anyone they say. "Meaning sleep with whoever they say.If you dont they have nothing on you to leverage", she went on. If you don't they have nothing on you to leverage... "Correct. Victimising the victim again".

Kaya Jones (far left) is seen with the Pussycat Dolls in 2003. TBH, we sometimes saw the group as Nicole Scherzinger and her back-up dancers, but obviously the other members were more than that.

"That's why I have so much respect for our military". While we were being abused & used. "At least real war is honest (sic)". It's been hard to hold lies in for people who broke me.

In response, Antin said Jones' claims were "disgusting, ridiculous lies". Hope you can hear me now Media in 2017!

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.

The choreographer and entrepreneur also founded girl group G.R.L. We as Pussycat Dolls were paid $500 a week. Battle took her own life in 2014.
