The Pussycat Dolls Was a "Prostitution Ring," Says Former Member Kaya Jones

An ex-member of burlesque-troupe-turned-pop-ensemble the Pussycat Dolls has spoken out against the group, claiming it was a "prostitution ring."
 
Kaya Jones was a member of the Pussycat Dolls from 2003 to 2005, and detailed her seemingly awful experience in the group with a string of tweets over the course of the weekend.
 
"I wasn't in a girl group. I was in a prostitution ring," she said. "Oh & we happened to sing & be famous. While everyone who owned us made the $."
 
She described founder and choreographer Robin Antin as "the den mother from hell," and claims that Antin "mentally broke us" — even blaming Antin for another group member's suicide (presumably that of Simone Battle, who was a member of the "next generation" of the Pussycat Dolls, a group called G.R.L.).
 
According to Jones' allegations, the Dolls were forced to "sleep with whoever they say," adding that "after they turn you out or get you hooked on drugs they use it against you."
 
In addition to citing the list of abuses, she concluded by admitting she didn't speak up until now because "I personally have been warned if I tell I will ... you know end up dead or no more career."

Antin has since responded to the allegations, telling The Blast that Jones' accusations are "disgusting, ridiculous lies," and that she is "clearly looking for her 15 minutes." Antin also said that Jones was never even an official member of the group, but rather only involved on a trial basis.
