Pussycat Dolls Founder Responds to That Whole "Prostitution" Thing

by at .

Now that Kaya Jones is done talking, Robin Antin would like to take the floor.

And set the record straight.

Late last week, Jones went off on a Twitter rant that railed against her time as a member of The Pussycat Dolls.

The artist used harsh language to describe an allegedly horrible situation, comparing the group to a "prostitution ring" and saying she was forced to "sleep with whoever they say."

She said members of the band were "abused," sometimes "hooked on drugs" and she compared her experience as a Pussycat Doll to "war."

Turning her attention to Simone Battle, a singer in spin-off group G.R.L. who committed suicide three years ago, Jones wrote:

"I want the den mother from hell to confess why another 1 of her girl group girls committed suicide? Tell the public how you mentally broke us."

Without stating her name, this was clearly a reference to Robin Antin, the choreographer who started The Pussycat Dolls.

And now Antin has fired back.

On Monday morning, Antin talked to The Blast and called the allegations, "disgusting, ridiculous lies."

She addedthat that Jones, who was in the group from 2003-2005, is "clearly looking for her 15 minutes [of fame]."

As for why her name may not sound familiar to music fans? Antin said Jones was only ever a "trial" member. She was never an official Pussycat Doll.

This could also explain the response of Asia Nitollano.

That artist, who sang with The Pussycat Dolls in 2007, scoffed at Kaya's remarks over the weekend as follows:

"Who is Kaya Jones? Lol She was not apart of The Pussycat Dolls the recording group so I do not know her...

"But judging from google she looks like she just wants her 15min of fame. (Side note... it says she's a Trump supporter... but yet she's Canadian, which means her vote doesn't count!!!!

"Same with this comment about The Pussycat Dolls; she wasn't in the group so her opinion doesn't count!!!!"

What about Battle‘s suicide?

Antin told The Blast that bringing up this topic was "unfathomable and disrespectful to everyone who works towards suicide prevention and awareness," writes the website.

And Antin says adds that mentioning a suicide in such a brazen way not only affects the family, but the millions of people that loved and cared for Simone.

She has a pretty strong point there, doesn't she?

If Jones is going to claim Battle killed herself due to her experience in her singing group and all that included... well... she better have some pretty hard evidence to back up such an assertion.
